There is much brewing in your inner life and conflicts on your freedom pathway are like arrows coming at you this way and that. In the past you have known what to do to put things in proper order. Now it is confusing. Be easy on yourself for these times are not meant for completion. During times of conflict, whether it is being reflected in relationships, business, family/tribe, or very likely an inner conflict as to which way to turn and with whom. It is troubling as there is no way to see clearly what must be done to bring about the correct actions to come to a harmonious outcome. The place you will find clarity is to find the middle path; go to center. By holding to neutrality while others are pleading their case to authority, or have began to bully or intimidate to be right, you will benefit to hold to your tongue and truth not by taking the stance of the righteous nor by bending to threats or coercion.

It is not weakness to take the center point where clarity resides; it is wisdom. While in this position do not demonstrate in any way a fear or doubts. Have confidence that the middle way is the correct position. From here you can express your clear vision with no fear of a negative outcome. Do not give up your position no matter if there are threats or bullying.

In review, you will see that when you were entering into a present arrangement or agreement, you were not clear about the truth of the situation. Often we are blinded by unreal expectation fired by desire. Go back to the onset of the situation and root out where you missed or denied the truth. Do not let this internal revelation activate further conflict by trying to correct the situation. It is not correctable in its present form. If you try, it will bring further conflict and arguments. During arguments you are blinded to truth.

This hexagram, Song, advises that you withdraw from the situation long enough to see more clearly what is happening or has happened. You may decide to withdraw completely, seeing that the agreement, whether actual or inferred, was built on false premises and false promises. Whether you stay in it or leave it behind, the clarity you will gain will bring peace of mind and will make way for good fortune.

If your choice is to proceed, your benefit is to recognize that conflict is being felt by all involved. With a firm stance and an open heart meet opposition halfway. Negotiate up to the point where you feel there is fairness and you have clarity of purpose. This will lead to good fortune, abundance, and tranquility. If no fair resolution is possible then swiftly, without delay, move on. No blame.

Conflicts among the people are presently amplified by the massive discord and conflict between nations and in the natural world; the people are at odds, political posturing based on greed for power, place, or money is running rampant and the cognoscente has lost sight of the damage that is being done every moment to our planet. You are picking up on this negativity and fear; it can't be helped. Now, consciously, in realizing where this energy is coming from, separate yourself from the influence of this negativity as reflected in relationships and in the decisions that affect your personal journey.

Greed has caused people to argue with and try to control nature. It is hard to wrap one’s head around how people would think this is possible This is a conflict that nature will win. Look to the tides, the weather, to any place where man has challenged or tried to “tame” nature and bend it to his will. It is a ridiculous battle, one that cannot be won by will, trickery, or force. It is the ego and intent of mankind that must be tamed, not nature. Here it is the individual egos that must be dealt with to allow the flow of nature, compassion, and love to be the tide that carries our earth toward our goals of harmony and completion.

Quite often, when a new and exciting project or relationship is before you, you can become lost in the potential of the projected outcome. This can lead to arguments and conflict. In the enlightened business model, a firm and fair contract must be put in place before one invests one’s time and energy; the same is true when it comes to family, friends, or other groups with whom we affiliate.

To have a successful outcome, face your fears, look to what is causing discord, and deal with these issues head-on. To do this have a clear picture of all sides of the situation. Begin by disengaging fully from the emotional state your inner doubts and conflict has activated. This will allow you to see all sides of the situation. From this standpoint, you will see what must be done; you will be acting from your inner sense of fairness and truth, and not out of greed, fear, or trying to appease others.

In relationships, cultivate compassion and listen fully to your partner; in business, communicate with focus and compassion for your associates. Do not be afraid to speak from your heart. You will be heard as you speak a well considered truth.

Angst will cause anxiety or depression. Look to where you are rigid and demanding of yourself or others. Give yourself a break and adapt a point of view that takes the pressure off. Meet yourself halfway; take an inventory of your goodness, skills, and intent, in knowing that you are enough and will make the right decision. It may be to withdraw completely, or it may be to begin anew, with a more flexible point of view, negotiating a place of fairness and harmony.

This Kua is a teaching for what may be, a situation at hand, or it may be a lesson in how to proceed in the correct way in a new situation that is appearing on the horizon.

At the beginning of any enterprise be it business, art, love, or any form of group endeavor, listen carefully to what the other says. Do not dismiss the subtle doubts and nagging sense of unease that you may feel in your early communication. At the beginning of getting to know someone romantically, listen for clues as to how they have behaved in the past. Often they may say they are not good at relationships, or they are not ready for a relationship. Listen to this and go no further. In business or other group endeavors, investigate how others in the field perceive your colleagues. Listen to what they are saying about past deals, partners, or involvements. If you sense negativity or dishonesty, do not proceed. Bow out gracefully and with compassion. As an artist choose representation carefully. Ask the hard questions always knowing it is you they need, not the other way around.

If in any situation you do not know which way to go, it is a sign to disengage and go to center. From that point you will have a clear picture of the situation in its entirety. Once you have gained this perspective, you can move forward with confidence and grace. This will lead to a peaceful, prosperous outcome.

Be in Peace. Spread Aloha!
