Mountain grows on the bottom of the boundless ocean.

Where dangerous ocean waves were rolling yesterday, tomorrow there will be a huge mountain. Life will become predictable and safe, calm and unshakable.


IN THE MANIFESTED REALITY.  Great achievements, rapid growth, and rapid changes will strengthen the material basis of life. Big material blessings, excessive protection destroy life itself, as the perfect unexpected adventure. Preservation and augmentation of the reliable material base, safety assurance and stability becomes the main vital purpose. Any serious changes will go away from life. Intention to follow and to preserve will destroy any creative, any seeking to changes. It is a stagnation caused by excessive material well-being. If material wealth, privileged position are the main priorities of life, then the dominant emotion will be the fear of losing them. In everyday life, this fear manifests itself as ENVY to those who have these benefits even more, whose position is even stronger and safer.
At a subconscious level, this vibration only intensifies: various fears lead to a desire for firmness and safety.

It is favorable to reverse the course of events, then harmful satiety will recede. It is beneficial to repeat the act of Buddha: to leave the safe palace and boldly step into the unpredictable world.

According to the Basic principle of the multidimensional interpretation of the Book of Changes, the ENVY does not necessarily apply to the questioner in person. The ENVY is the dominant vibration of this plan. It may be all the opposite: someone can envy the very inquirer, his achievements and benefits.

Hexagram 16 Multidimensionality (opposite vibration) SELF-SUFFICIENCY

SELF-SUFFICIENCY is the deep inner conviction that t, ere will always be as much as you need for a harmonious life. SELF-SUFFICIENCY removes any basis for the appearance of ENVY. However, people in this dual world will always doubt about the possibility of their SELF-SUFFICIENCY. These doubts are fertile soil for the emergence of ENVY.




The darkness of the night devours everything:
the fuss, the achievements, and fears alike.
