I just decided to do I-Ching, because I've been feeling a little blah today.
It always surprises me how accurate I-Ching is.
I received "KU-Work on what has been spoiled"
"Receiving this hexagram is a sign that there is a defect in the attitude of oneself, another or one's society that should be corrected."
"It is likely the problem is an old one, and equally likely that no solution will be immediately evident."
"Whether the fault lies in yourself, another, or your community, the requirement is the same. Watch closely while remaining quiet, innocent and sincere"
I do always have to remember that Buddhist monks, while living in peace, are not having to interact with people from all walks of life on a daily basis. I live in a Western society that does not look upon Eastern religions in a very kind manner. Yet I strive to be peaceful, and raise my son in a peaceful household. Integrating Western and Eastern philosophies will be my life long task.
