Why I trust the I Ching
At nadir's edge flows the dawn.
I look at the Yin Yang, and I know that all things change, all the time.
I'm getting this in my bones. Sweet relief.
Hexagram 36 -- DARKENING OF THE LIGHT -- speaks to me today:
In the deepest darkness is the turn of the tide ...
I've lived with major recurrent depression all my life -- but that is not all that I live with. Dawn, faithfully, always comes.
That is my received wisdom for today. What a gift.
