Conflict & Peace

Conflict and Peace I Ching Hexagram 6 Heaven over Water

We can choose to understand war, conflict, and peace from a greater perspective, instead of falling into the traps of the intellectual mind that gets caught up in what, who, why, the right, and wrong. Conflict is like inflammation, it is part of the individual, regional, global, and universal process of energy transformation. War is an intense flare-up that indicates additional energy is being focused to resolve the underlying conflict. To judge conflict by looking at the current effect on individuals, countries or the world is a mental trap that feeds the conflict. Instead, I invite you to expand your consciousness. If you must use the mind, first seek to understand all sides of any conflict, as if you are each side, until you can identify with both empathically. This process might require creativity and the study of years of history. Then seek to understand it from a metaphysical perspective that serves all of humanity.

This is the essence of shadow work, transmutation, and transformation.

Thoughts of war, conflict, anger, and resistance create more conflict. Choose thoughts that bring you inner peace, and it affects all of life.

I Ching 6 Peace

Polarity: Aggressive < Peaceful > Undisturbed


Everything we think is bad, such as conflict, is merely the partner of its opposite. The principle of polarities is a key element of transmutation where we learn how to transform energy from one side to the other. Every situation where there is conflict is an invitation for understanding higher truth. This is how we learn to inspire and uplift ourselves using this tension of transformation. It is through higher self-awareness that we master polarities, ourselves, and our emotional waves.

The lessons we learn are themed around realizing that conflict can only occur between two parties that are defending themselves against the other. Each side will feel justified in its position, otherwise the conflict could not occur. Peace is a choice we can make in every moment. Thoughts of attack make the idea of attack possible, and then affirms the choice by making the experience of attack real.   

To cultivate this higher awareness of the tension of transformation we must open our minds to understanding life from a different perspective. It is only through a conscious choice of living a peaceful life that we will learn and have the evidence through our experience. Words are meaningless without the evidence and the inner realization that make them valuable.

The only thing worth fighting for in this world is inner peace.

The I Ching – A Universal Binary Model

The I Ching

SHORTCUTS: Introduction to the I Ching, A Universal Model, Intuitive Geometry & The I Ching, I Ching Diagram, Spectrum of Consciousness, Your Personalized I Ching Profile & Report, Profile Report Example

Introduction to the I Ching

The I Ching is Chinese and the oldest of all the classical systems, from around 800 BCE. It is a great universal model and one of the oldest books in the world. It is based on simple binary (what our computers are built on) with 64 themes. In its original form it guides through the ways of nature, and provides wisdom for contemplation and insightful answers to questions.

A Universal Model

The hexagrams that form the basis of the I Ching are from the Bagua, in Taoist Cosmology. It is the 8 symbols that represent the basic principles of existence. It is represented by the 8 trigrams, 8 elements of nature: Earth, Wind, Fire, Thunder, Mountain, Water, Lake, and Heaven. Each trigram has three lines, each line either “open” or “solid”, representing yin or yang, 0 or 1 forming binary numbers 000-111 (0 to 7).

Intuitive Geometry & the I Ching

I had some knowledge of the I Ching Hexagrams by the time I got into geometry and created the Intuitive Geometry book. Intuitive Geometry is intended to be a universal model to draw and design based on the same kind of universal structure so that Intuitive Geometry becomes a framework for an infinite number of projects. I believe the Intuitive Geometry system can be a great educational tool because we learn so much easier with colors and patterns.

Spectrum of Consciousness

The 64 hexagrams is a useful tool for exploring something as complex as the spectrum of human consciousness. Looking at the spectrum of consciousness through 8 primary themes makes it simpler to see a larger perspective while appreciating the subtle essence of each.
