Yijing Secrets of Extreme Yin Yang Reversal

Yijing Secrets of Extreme Yin Yang Reversal

One of the things I love about learning from the Yijing Masters is that I am beginning to know how to see the secrets of Yin Yang in all areas of life, subjects, religions, etc. Yin Yang becomes more than just a symbol of the Tai Chi.

Yin Yang when understood can enable one to apply it in all activities correctly.

Feng Shui is yang or external. Meditation is yin or internal. When there are things that you can’t do about your Feng Shui, you can work on your internal energy through meditation. External energy affects internal energy, and internal energy affects external energy.

In meditation, one goes to a place of stillness, void, emptiness, empty of resistance. The more yin one becomes in meditation, the more empty of resistance one becomes. Empty of negative thoughts and feelings, at least temporarily. Bashar calls it the “Zero Balance Rest” state where miracles can happen.

When in a place of extreme yin, the great reversal happens and one has access to the infinite yang. In the emptiness or void, one has access to the infinite field of pure potential where all possibilities exist. Reality is a locking down of possibilities. But when all possibilities are released in a state of emptiness, all possibilities are open temporarily in meditation.

This is how every-thing comes from No-thing, and emptiness is the origin of all things. From Wu Ji (Emptiness) gives birth to Tai Ji (Ultimate Reality), and that is how 0 becomes 1, Yin becomes Yang. From Wu Ji and Tai Ji, Yin Yang exists.

Yin Yang can also enable one to have a little more understanding about events that seem mysterious and perplexing.

In the Bible, Joseph was a young boy when he had a dream where he saw all the people including his brothers bowing down to him. His father also gave him a coat of many colors (probably rainbow colored) and it was long sleeve (a symbol of a ruling class instead of working class). He told his brothers about the dream. When they heard about it and also saw the coat that he was wearing, they got angry and jealous and conspired to kill him. They end up selling him as a slave to Egyptians and lied to their father that he was killed and showed the coat covered in animal blood and said it was Joseph’s blood on it.

So Joseph went from a high point down to a bottom in his life.

As an Egyptian slave, his started rising again from a bottom. His master saw that the Lord was with Joseph and he was a prosperous man. Everything that he touched prospered because the Lord was with him. His master had favor with him and placed him to be in charge of everything in his household. His master was Potiphar, and Potiphar’s wife wanted to seduce Joseph into sleeping with her but he did not do it because it would not be right toward his God and his master. After several times of refusal, the final time was when he had to run away from her when she tried to trap him into doing it. She was upset about it and lied that Joseph tried to rape her. His master not fully believing what she said about Joseph decided to throw Joseph in prison instead of executing him.

Hence, Joseph once again from a high point fell to an even lower bottom than before. From a slave to a prisoner.

From the bottom as a prisoner, he begins to rise once again as he has favor with the Jailor and the Jailor makes him in charge of all the prisoners. He used his gift of divination by interpreting the dreams of two of the prisoners. One of them was a Butler and the other was a Baker. The Baker had a sad fate of being executed while the Butler had a more auspicious outcome of being restored to his former position. Joseph asked the Butler to remember him and to speak to the ruler about him. But the Butler forgot all about Joseph when he was restored back to his former job.

Later on, the ruler of the land Pharaoh himself had a dream that he could not interpret. The butler told Pharaoh about Joseph and Pharaoh summoned Joseph to interpret his dream. Joseph used his God-given gift of divination in interpreting dreams that he had since he was a young boy, and interpreted Pharaoh’s dream about the 7 Years of Prosperity and the 7 Years of Famine, and how to prepare Egypt to make use of the coming times head. Joseph’s divination predicted the auspicious and inauspicious times, and the solution.

Pharaoh made Joseph in charge of the whole nation of Egypt and to implement the solution to the times coming ahead. In this manner, Joseph from a prisoner became a ruler. He rose from the lowest to the highest. And he remained in that position all the way until he died at a ripe old age.

The dream that Joseph had when he was a young boy was a divination and the coat he was given was a sign of his future and his destiny, but yet events turn out very differently at first. A promise or a vision given by God may seem to turn out opposite in the process but eventually it comes to fruition in a person’s destiny.

Sometimes negative events and attacks from other people happen to bring a righteous person down. Bad events happen and there are other people who could be lying, or misunderstanding and accusing this person. It is not necessarily his own Karma that is attracting all these evil, but it could be that in the broader picture, God is going to make use of the situations and lift this person to the greatest heights.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The Tao Te Ching Secrets of Extreme Yin Yang Reversal:
“If you want something to return to the source,
you must first allow it to spread out.
If you want something to weaken,
you must first allow it to become strong.
If you want something to be removed,
you must first allow it to flourish.
If you want to possess something,
you must first give it away.
This is called the subtle understanding
of how things are meant to be.”

Sometimes you may experience peak points in certain areas of life and start losing those. But there could be greater heights coming up. In this ever expanding universe, we may go lower for awhile in order to go higher. And sometimes we may go lower and lower than before, in order to go much, much higher.


Yijing Secrets of Ups and Downs in Life

Yijing Secrets of Ups and Downs in Life

According to the Yijing, when something rises to the top or reaches an extreme high, it reverses and declines. When something falls to a bottom or extreme low, it reverses and rises.

That’s why when one reaches a peak or high, they seem to come tumbling down. There are times when I had reached a peak or high and then things happen that cause me to tumble down until I feel at the lowest. And then things become better and I rise again until I reach a peak or high, and then things happen that cause me to tumble down again. And when I am climbing up again, I think of how it would be like to be on high again, but I realize it might not be so good idea to reach a high. Either that or I should be careful when on a high.

It is good to remain lowly and let things push you up, than to be on a high and tumble down at any time.

It is no wonder Masters of the Yi Jing:
1. Make themselves Number 2.
2. Make themselves more Yin.
3. Make themselves as continually progressing and not the top.

I have learnt from 3 Yijing Masters and they all apply those characteristics in similar and different ways.

So how then do we deal with the Yijing forces of Ups and Downs? In order to prevent falling from a high, we could:
1. Be number 2.
2. Be number 1 but also be number 0. This creates Yin Yang Balance. Be on top but also remain connected to a lowly state.
3. Be careful when being on high to be aware of danger and become more conservative or retreat if necessary.
4. Put God as number 1.

If you look at the number 1 and number 2 richest people in the world, you will discover a very interesting thing.

Bill Gates is number 1, but actually he started out as number 2. Steve Jobs was number 1 first. Then Bill Gates came to work with Steve Jobs and make himself number 2 while letting Steve Jobs be number 1, but Bill Gates took the ideas from Steve Jobs and went to create Windows which made him overtake Steve Jobs and become number 1 in the world.

There is nothing wrong with learning from someone and overtaking that person, but Steve Jobs was against what Bill Gates did. Later on, Steve Jobs continued to be too yang, and because he stuck to his idea of making Macintosh number 1 instead of considering the ideas of the rest of his company, he got ousted out of Apple by a confederacy among the people. Hence Steve Jobs from Number 1 became Number 2 and then he dropped even lower until he hit bottom before rising again.

Warren Buffet has been number 2 richest man all along and at certain times he overtook Bill Gates as number 1 temporarily. But is Warren Buffet really number 2? He is actually number 1 in a different way. Warren Buffet being number 2 means his wealth always has room to grow since it is not at the top yet. He is a value investor and an accumulator. No matter how rich he becomes, he always live like a number 0. He wants to buy at a bottom and is careful of the market being at the top.

And how does the number 1 and number 2 richest men in the world interact with each other? Do they compete with each other to be number 1? They actually cooperate and are good friends and link together like a combination at the top. Warren Buffet donates a lot of money to the Melinda Gates foundation.

The Bible contains secrets of the Yijing and Yin Yang:
Matthew 19:30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
Palms 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.

The Tao Te Ching also contains secrets of the Yijing and Yin Yang:
“A large country should take the low place like a great watershed, which from its low position assumes the female role.
Large countries should desire to protect and help the people, and small countries should desire to serve others.
Both large and small countries benefit greatly from humility.
The low is the foundation of the high.
Rivers and seas are rulers of the streams of hundreds of valleys because of the power of their low position. If you want to be the ruler of people, you must speak to them like you are their servant.
The people will not feel burdened, if a wise person is in a position of power. The people will not feel like they are being manipulated, if a wise person is in front as their leader. The whole world will ask for her guidance, and will never get tired of her.
Because it does not seek greatness (does not do things purely for the sake of recognition but because of passion); it is able to accomplish truly great things.
When equal forces meet in battle, victory will go to the one that enters with the greatest sorrow.
The great view the small as their source, and the high takes the low as their foundation. Their greatest asset becomes their humility. They speak of themselves as orphans and widows, thus they truly seek humility.”

When a person is going through an up without experiencing much downs before, they may not be believing in all these Chinese Metaphysics stuff.

Many of us who learn Chinese Metaphysics is because we have gone through major up and down cycles in life. Most likely we started learning when we have:
1. Undergone a down and are climbing up again.
2. Going through a down with some ups here and there and are trying to figure out what our state of life is.

I hope what I share here can help shed some insight into life through the principles of the Yijing and simple concept of Yin Yang.

Some further insights…

When on an upward cycle, you can:
1. Make the most out of the opportunity and push as high as you can. You determine where the top is.
2. Do not assume you are at the top yet and believe there is still room for advancement and go for it.
3. If you find that it is difficult to push further and things to start fluctuating or declining, it’s time to quit while you are ahead, or become more conservative, or retreat.

When on downward cycle, you can:
1. Use yang to repel yang by using more energy and effort to push things back up. Choose your battles wisely and fight in ways where you know is positive.
2. If you find difficulty in pushing something up, then retreat and cut loss. You determine where the bottom is. Staying in a losing situation can bring you down further.
3. If you are in a situation where you find it difficult to win and yet you cannot retreat because you are stuck in it and need progress, then surrender. Now is not the time to be yang and appear strong, but to become yin and let go, ask for help, cry to God. This is a signal to the universe that you are at a bottom and things can rise from there.

Example of making the most of out the yang cycle in the Bible:
Joseph helped Pharaoh to store up as much food as possible in the 7 Years of Prosperity to make use of in the 7 Years of Famine and this result in Egypt maximizing in wealth and power in the long term of good and bad times.

Example of being at the bottom of a yin cycle in the Bible:
Israel cried out to God each time they were in a helpless situation and God delivered them from their enemies and the negative situation they were in.

The forces of time and space will always move things up and down and create tops and bottoms, but you can also choose by your own action where the top is for you, and where the bottom is for you. It is like being a surfer riding a wave and deciding where to get on and where to get off in order to move from one wave to another.

It takes wisdom to know which choice to make. Sometimes you can tell when you are in an up or down cycle based on Feng Shui knowledge. Sometimes you have to use Divination. Other times you can simply tell based on observing the signs and feeling the energy of a situation.


God’s Way of Saving You from Trouble into Abundance

God’s Way of Saving You from Trouble into Abundance

New Age principles tells you to avoid people who are in distress, in lack and discontented. But the God of the Bible is amazing. David was in times of trouble and he attracted a whole bunch of people in distress, in lack and discontented. He praised the Lord and God saved all of them together. Those who were with him in times of trouble were exalted together with him in times of honor.

1 Samuel 22:1-2 1 David therefore departed thence, and escaped to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and all his father’s house heard it, they went down thither to him. And every one that was in distress, and every one that was in debt, and every one that was discontented, gathered themselves unto him; and he became a captain over them: and there were with him about four hundred men.

Palms 34:1 « A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed. » I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

Christ came to save the last, the lost and the least. He doesn’t look to how righteous you are, how spiritual you are, or how much good Karma you have. He is there to lift you up with His grace and His gift of righteousness. He is the Good Shepherd.
