# The Bellows in Between 2

The three Layers of Level 2 Level 2:  Heavy Spark Ascending, Fire Circulating, Doubled Yang * Level 2 is much more interesting because although there is only one LEVEL 2, there are three LAYERS of Level 2.  Remember I said that the I Ching is multidimensional?  Well, that means that parts of it occupies the … Continue reading The Bellows in Between 2

# The Bellows in Between 1

Ugh!  I got all the easy parts done, and now it's nothing but hard stuff.  I am so dreading this section, but I have to finish it.  I've been very, very bad lately.  I start all sorts of subjects and I say that I will add to the information and finish the posting groups, but … Continue reading The Bellows in Between 1

# Zeroes and Ones

Zero We have to start somewhere, and zero is the perfect starting point.  Since I have that dreaded mathephobia disease, I am rather handicapped and cannot calculate huge numbers in a multitude of dimensions, I need to use a computer to do the grunt work.  Now, I may be blonde, but I'm no dummy.  I … Continue reading Zeroes and Ones

# I Suck at Math

Heaven is high, the earth is low; thus the Creative and the Receptive are determined.  In correspondence with this difference between low and high, inferior and superior places are established. Movement and Rest have their definite laws; according to these, firm and yielding lines are differentiated. Events follow definite trends, each according to its nature.  Things are distinguished from … Continue reading I Suck at Math

# Pissed I tell you. Pissed!!!

Giang sơn nào anh hùng nấy (To each hero, his own realm) ~ Annon I was Pissed!!! I spent YEARS looking at the placement of the I Ching.  It was maddening in its complexity.  I tried this way.  I tried that way.  I stood on my head.  I looked at it upside down.  I spent countless … Continue reading Pissed I tell you. Pissed!!!

# I Ching: Made in Vietnam (Part 3)

It may seem as if there is no point to many of my posts, as they diverge in very different areas.  What I am attempting to do is to try to connect some far-flung dots by setting everything down in a concrete fashion that I can then use as anchor points with which to start … Continue reading I Ching: Made in Vietnam (Part 3)

# I Ching: Made in Vietnam (Part 2)

SOMETIMES I FEEL SO BOXED IN!!!!   I have this almost unhealthy obsession to seek out so many things that are still existing at the razor sharp edge between the newly dogmatic accepted-truth and para-quasi-semi-fantasy-sci-fi-hallucinatory-magik-alchemy-mumbo-jumbo. It always starts off the same.  One moment, I'm looking through a magazine trying to pick out a new perfume … Continue reading I Ching: Made in Vietnam (Part 2)

# I Ching: Made in Vietnam (Part 1)

The I Ching originated in Vietnam?  WOOOWWW!!! Talk about shattering the age-old glass of firmly entrenched and ancient ideology, this one takes the cake!  Does this claim have even a leg to stand on?  Is there any definitive proof?  But more importantly, do we even care any more, at this late date, what with knowledge … Continue reading I Ching: Made in Vietnam (Part 1)

# DNA and the I Ching: The Connection

I have to admit, I didn't see it at first.  How could there possibly be a connection between two utterly dissimilar entities?  The I Ching is an ancient method of divination utilizing chance and the human condition, whereas Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA for short (can you imagine having to type that long name over, and over, … Continue reading DNA and the I Ching: The Connection

# Hexagram 26 – Hang In There

I unintentionally did something quite mean this afternoon. I drove my ever-loyal and loving scent hound, a three-year-old basset named Gilligan, out of the house today because I had to do a I-Ching divination, and I burned an entire chypre incense cone in my office to help me relax and center my mind.  The smell … Continue reading Hexagram 26 – Hang In There
