13. FELLOWSHIP

Heaven is above and Fire is what is under.
To climb toward heaven is only fire's nature.
The lowly second line is the central character
as it binds the five strong lines together.
Thus a yielding nature can hold the firm together.
.
Fellowship must be based upon concern universal.
It is not the private interests of the individual
but the needs of the many that is inspirational.
If open fellowship with other folks is successful
even crossing the great water can be achievable.
.
Heavenward Fire  invokes an image of Fellowship.
In order to bring about this sort of fellowship
we need dedicated and enlightened leadership:
  • Clear, Credible, Inspiring, and Firm Stewardship.
  • Organizing and Distinguishing:  Clansmanship.
  • .
    Heaven and Fire are of the same element
    other than that they are clearly different.
    Just as the luminaries in the firmament
    serve for time's systematic arrangement
    things belong in their respective placement.
    .
    So too in human society we must organize.
    Fellowship is not mere mingling exercise.
    That would be chaos. Do you not realize?
    The meaning of fellowship is to harmonize.
    Discover some way to inherently organize.
    THE LINES:
    NINE AT BOTTOM MEANS:
    Union's fellowship among the gentry
    should have taken place before entry
    where all shared the same equality.
    Principles must be shared equally.
    Secret pacts will prove unlucky.

    6 IN 2ND PLACE:
    Fellowship in the clan...  Humiliation.
    Here is a forming of another faction
    based upon egoistic exclusive action.
    Such low course leads to humiliation.

    NINE IN THIRD PLACE:
    One hides weapons in a thicket
    and climbs up a hill in front of it.
    Obstacles to fellowship are indicate.
    Fellowship turns into serious doubt
    as each distrustingly plans in secret
    & spy on each other from a thicket.
    For three years one cannot make it.
    Each suspects other's wiles and wit.
    The result being that each will quit
    further from fellowship and lose it.

    NINE IN THE FOURTH PLACE:
    One climbs upon one's wall and can't attack.
    Fortune!  Tactical problems prevent a fight.
    Reconciliation after quarrel is quite right.

    NINE IN THE FIFTH PLACE:
    In a relationship, wep'd and lamented,
    where two friends seam to be separated.
    By life's situations they are parted
    But in their hearts they are still united.
    Remaining true (never really separated)
    after a great struggle they are reunited.
    No longer sad... They are now delighted.

    NINE AT THE TOP MEANS:
    At this time we're really not fellowshipping.
    Warmth that springs from heart is lacking.
    However, we ally ourselves (sort of joining).
    This sort of fellowship is not all including
    (only those who happen to be neighboring).
    Though the ultimate goal's not yet attaining
    we needn't be indulging in self reproaching.
