I Ching. Hexagram 23 is named 剝 (bō), “Stripping”.
Other variations include “Splitting apart”, “Fraying”.
IN THE MANIFESTED REALITY.
A beautiful huge mountain lies on an endless plain. A mountain symbolizes the difference from the plain, that is, individuality, as well as an unshakable and reliable financial situation.
The wind blows, it rains, the mountain is destroyed. Mountain gradually turns into a plain. The dominant desire to protect oneself from any material problems gradually destroys individuality.
Soon there will be only one infinite plain, as a reliable and safe foundation. Seeking to excessive material prosperity and safety will destroy an individual life. Material supplying of the life will entirely destroy an individual life itself.
ON SUBCONSCIOUS PLANE.
An extremely powerful foundation is made. Such foundation will maintain any house. Here intention dominates repeatedly to secure itself from any vicissitudes of life.
The owner from above this foundation builds another, no less powerful foundation. The desire to protect yourself and your family is so great that it pushes out everything else, that is, life itself. Life turns into an endless desire for prosperity and security.
COMMON INTERPRETATION OF THE HEXAGRAM №23
In the manifested reality, the vast plain absorbs the mountain. The desire to protect oneself from any material losses gradually kills individuality and the very life itself. In the end, there will be only one plain, as a reliable material provision of life. The individual life will be lost, only the material provision of this life will remain.
On subconsciously, the situation is greatly aggravated. Here intention dominates to construct a double very reliable foundation for life. WEALTH. All thoughts are only about providing your family with everything necessary, for building a powerful foundation for any activity. But there is no other activity other than the same: the construction of a material foundation for oneself and one’s loved ones.
The essence of the vibration of this hexagram:
taking care of the material provision of life destroys life itself!
Both in the subconscious and in the manifested reality, all efforts are directed at the material provision of life. WEALTH. For a long time already everything has abounded, further, all is simply senseless! This is a dead-end situation. Life simply can not develop further in the direction of accumulating material wealth and strengthening security. Therefore, development as a whole will go exactly in the opposite direction. Material losses and loss of safety here are a necessary condition of continuation of individual life.
The vibration of the hexagram 23 is the great obstacle to the spiritual development of the person. Disinterested service to the whole world, charity, everything that turns money into love here will be favorable. Gratefully accept any material loss. It will revive your life. Pay more attention to the spiritual aspects of your life.
Multidimensionality (opposite vibration)
Somebody all life seeks WEALTH, and ASCETIC rejects material blessings for the sake of intellectual searches. Focusing on WEALTH turns life into an ongoing concern for preserving and multiplying material wealth. Awareness of the loss of one’s own life for the sake of accumulating WEALTH naturally leads to ASCETICISM. Excessive ASCETICISM is a struggle with one’s own material nature to please spiritual aspirations. ASCETICISM is an aversion and escaping from the cruel trial of WEALTH. On a subtle plane, the pursuit of WEALTH or its fierce denial is vibrationally identical. It is important that attention in both cases is focused on the material plane of life.
The more you worry about safety,
the more in danger you will be.
Nothing stays in balance.
The light will fade, the dark sets in!
