47

Hexagram for Everyone for Today:

47: Oppression

General Meaning:

The image of oppression conjures up a dried up lake bed with nettlesome crows stalking the shoreline. Hard times can shrivel our spirits, and give rise to a multitude of 'crows' in the form of troublesome worries. Times of great loss or personal failure break weaker people; but the strong of heart can bend with fate. To endure hard times — or even grow and benefit from them — it is essential to tap that deepest stratum of personal identity, that which is deeper even than fate, and which is incorruptible by even the harshest realities. It is essential, in other words, to tap the wellspring of human endurance: hope.

In a sense, there is no such thing as failure. There is only sweet and sour reality, and more is learned from the sour, oftentimes, than from the sweet. For failure, hard as it may be to swallow, opens the blinds to the real world, and reawakens the clarity of vision known only to those who have risked, and tasted, disappointment.

When in the throes of hard times, it is wise to be resolute and strong on the inside while remaining quietly cheerful on the outside. Avoid too much talking — except to your closest friends. Your words will have little effect on all others, since your influence will be at a low ebb — and the attempt to get across will only drain you of vital energy. Strong silence is the most skillful posture when facing the public during adversity; it shows that your inner core is strong enough to withstand the current troubles, and suggests that your recovery will be complete. At the same time, talking openly to those you trust is equally important, for in times of calamity, talking is an important part of healing.

Keep in mind that failure — the final taboo in modern society. But this is just one part of the inevitable cycle of life for those who dare to live fully and completely. Never to fail at all is to fail in the biggest way — avoiding risk altogether, you cannot help but fall far short of what might have been.

Enjoyed seeing a PICTURE in the Hexagram of the Day.
Loved the ' visual' .
Now I have to re-group, re-arrange, repair, re-develop, re-think my thoughts.
Kind of confusing ...did they change it, or am I on the wrong page????
What has happened????????????????

Just read the comments about the new format. I don't like it either. I don't like the colors or the lay out. I hope that the people behind the scenes consider making a change, the old website was better.

I, Like a lot of people don't care for the new format at all!!
I liked it much better the other way.
It was easier to get to what you were looking for faster.I'm even thinking of changing to another
web site. Just not as interested anymore.

I am enjoying this time of being remote and letting the past go. I sure wish others would? I will continue and I will conquer all. I am learning that things still need small bits of attention. I value my children far more than a rapist and a whore. I know that there is a Higher Power~hinting towards a higher calling. Dead-beats need to not exist in America today. I hope Karma pays you all ten fold! The co-enalbers of lies and deceit need to learn a huge lesson from this! Lord! Hear My Prayer's!

I agree that it seemed easier in the old format to find relevant information (daily, weekly, monthly.) more easily. I've just spent a lot of time trying to get my monthly horoscope on the 1st of July! ouch . . .
