Hold it, hold it .... are you telling me there is a THIRD
gathering site??

Is this really necessary?

The I Ching symbol for "Gathering" is a lake on the Earth -- a
gathering of waters. The I Ching warns that the lake can break
its bounds and that one must be prepared to stop this, or at
least prepared for that occurrence. Is this what is happening?
Is the Gathering too big to "gather" now? Are we at flood stage?

In contrast, the I Ching hexagram "Splitting Apart" says: "The
inferior, dark forces overcome what is superior and strong, not
by direct means, but by undermining it gradually and
imperceptibly, so that it finally collapses." "Splitting Apart.
It does not further one to go anywhere." This is what it feels
like. "The upper trigram stands for the mountain, whose
attribute is stillness. This suggests that one should submit to
the bad time and remain quiet. For it is a question not of man's
doing but of time conditions, which, according to the laws of
heaven, show an alternation of increase and decrease, fullness
and emptiness. It is impossible to counteract these conditions
of the time. Hence it is not cowardice but wisdom to submit and
avoid action."

Happy Solstice, folks.
