Healing energy and guidance for the circle this week

Hexagram 33—RETREAT

THE PATTERN IMAGE/ENERGY
HEAVEN over MOUNTAIN—-The ascending Heaven withdraws from the still Mountain, forming a state of Retreat. This image denotes a situation in which a strong force voluntarily retreats in order to bring an advancing, inferior force to a standstill.
It indicates that you must disengage yourself calmly and dispassionately from the situation the moment you begin to lose your equilibrium and tranquility.

THE GUIDENCE
The way of cyclical change is now forming the conditions for a timely retreat. Inferior forces, in accord with the natural pattern increase and decrease, are on the rise. To persist and confront such forces would be inappropriate, discordant, and exhausting. The best course of action is to withdraw from the situation with your strength and position intact. If you wait too long to retreat, you may become entangled. Timely disengagement not only brings inferior forces to a standstill, but also reveals new options.
Modest but firm countermeasures can then be undertaken until the time is right for advancement. In retreating, you should inwardly maintain your inner equilibrium and vision, while outwardly biding your time and strengthening yourself for the opportune time to act.

THE RHYTHMIC PATTERN/ENERGY
This rhythm resonates inner stillness and outer strength. Resonating to this rhythm, the drummer engenders the qualities needed to retreat at the right moment and in the right manner


Be still within ourselves at this time and be not quick to grab onto what is going on around us. Breathe into the heart and sit with our inner strength and being. Observe the situation without action.
