Ding - Caldron
BY PURPLE YANG
learned the lesson from the past
issue, Firmament, or Water over Earth, which I had
to meditate on the entire three due-months before the concept
flashed magically out of the first chapter of Genesis and
onto my eyes, I want to start as early as possible so that I do
not have to chase human innovative conscious loop in order to
see its snapping hook but dashing look. So right here and now,
just a day past the Fall Equinox of 2006, I immediately work on
the conceptual aspect of the hexagram so I do not have to re-experience
the dragging, nagging, and sagging process.
over Wind hexagram is the last hexagram in the Moondial.
Unlike revelation in the Bible, which plays the movie or DVD filled
and recorded in the cosmos and screened and flashed upon the inner
eye and heart of John, the hexagram of Ding or Caldron
as Chinese has applied is about creative invention, innovative
procedure and technological advancement. It is about going back
home, the heart of universe, not through mental images but with
mechanical technologies, not with visions and hopes but with spaceship
and satellite. It is about landing on God's right feet with thrusting
and dusty power manifested originally in the universe but applied
order, opposite direction, introverted stance, in contrast to
chronological order, instinctive act, and extroverted glance.
It is the homecoming party with computer gadgets, and digital
equipments, and satellite-televised live performance. It is
about the first and final glow of universal power and its look:
holding with dualistic manner and matter the indestructible
light and power of central creation, the eye of God.
eye of God is the immortal being sitting and shining in the
middle of nowhere, above the branched cross of Divine Pedals,
Diverted Sprout, Divorced Result, where the dualistic process,
evolution and involution, creation and destruction, is mutually
present in the suspended hoop of that pendulum swing. The dot
in the middle of the linguistic construction is the look of
Sun, the image of glory, and the fine display. While the woody
branches or logs or petals are the holding ground, standing
feet, embracing arms, and flying wings.
