Self-Diagnosed Righteousness

Before I get into this it might be fun to take a look at your acquaintances and ask yourself, do they pertain to the light or the dark side of the force. Those that use any form or coercion however slight and apparently justified have at least a hint of shade to them

Many imagine themselves righteous, the good and the just. History is littered with these and the corpses which they produced. Racial apartheid was practised in America during my lifetime and to an extent it still is only now it is pecuniary apartheid which dominates and that may overlap with racial apartheid too. There were wars for the right to own and flog slaves. People who fought for the right to have slaves imagined themselves righteous and perhaps even Christian. Funny how one can twist religion as proof of being righteous over the heathen, whichever religion that may be.

I’ll postulate that the self-diagnosis of righteousness is often faulty.

Group mind can easily polarise and entrench this faulty diagnosis.

There is a related phenomenon group-diagnosed righteousness.

“We are right and justified, let’s go and kill all those bastards who disagree.”

Perhaps Mr Trump believes himself to be righteous?

At the moment there is debate about Harold Windsor hinting that everyone else is to blame for his dissatisfaction. He is making a few quid out of it. His wife has found her soapbox. He perhaps sees himself and his mother as the righteous. The truth perhaps is that everyone who read{s} a juicy and well paying gossip about Diana has had a hand in the current hand wringing. Each one who took {takes} a salacious bit of news has {is} adding fuel.


Would you diagnose yourself as being just, justified and in the right?

Do you pertain to the light or the dark side of the force?

Does butter melt in your mouth?

I Ching Unfoldment Consultation 7-1-23

I have been consulting the I Ching oracle for over three decades on and off. It all started when in a bookshop in Tring and copy of the Wilhelm I Ching “jumped” off a shelf and landed at my feet. I saw it as an omen that I should use the I Ching.

Normally one takes a while to formulate, with care, that which one wishes to consult about. If you ask banal questions like; “When will I meet a tall dark and handsome man?” The I Ching will give a banal if not piss taking answer. If you ask roughly the same question of the oracle over and over it will tell you not to be so impudent. One needs to treat the I Ching with respect because in reading the oracle one changes the future. One cannot unread what one has read. So, the conscious choice of consultation is a future changing event. If you do not like the answer and try to go against the “advice” that is very unwise.

In many cases the I Ching just adds that little bit of clarity, some left field input, to something already at the periphery of intuition.

Sometimes the I Ching will not “let” you ask a question. Whenever this happens it is important to take note. A valid timely question is always easy to hold in the mind’s eye and build intent to the answering. In no way ought one to try to influence the oracle. One can on occasion get a “preview” as the hexagram unfolds.

 I have just tried to ask the question:

“Please comment on the unfoldment of 2023 for me…”

As I was asking this question, I had visual images of three people who I believe do not pertain to the light side of the force, one more linked to two of these also not light appeared. There was one other individual who I am unsure as to their orientation with light.

I could not complete the question. The I Ching would not let me. The thought forms of these individuals were obstructing.

One possible interpretation is that the unfoldment of 2023 will in some way involve these beings not exactly aligned with the light.

It is a 7 day in a 7 year so this could be the light jewel guidance at work…


If only you knew the power of the dark side.

Darth Vader, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)


Luke don’t give in to hate. That leads to the dark side.

Obi-Wan Kenobi, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)


Once you start down the dark path, forever it will dominate your destiny. Consume you, it will.

Yoda, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)


Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.

 Yoda, Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)

The dark side clouds everything. Impossible to see, the future it is.

Yoda, Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)

When you look at the dark side, careful you must be. For the dark side looks back.
