Long time ago I was talking with a friend about faith, trust, God , universe, you know all those questions. With my mind I understood perfectly what he was talking about but my heart haven’t got a clue . I use Yijing for guidance and the readings I got lately echoed his words. But this time, I could understood and every another- time I understand better. The last couple of days I was looking for an answer hidden in the lines of gua 16. Wilhelm’s Enthusiasm. Then I went to LiSe’s website to read her 16. The word inspiration everywhere but it didn’t really made sense. I was looking for an answer how to do something I had in mind and I couldn’t find it . Sometimes , when I feel I can’t understand the obvious I go to a dictionary to look up for the words. So, I did and here it is what I found

enthusiasm, from Gk. enthousiasmos, from enthousiazein "be inspired". The source of the word is the Greek enthousiasmos, which ultimately comes from the adjective entheos, "having the god within," formed from en, "in, within," and theos, "god."

I went back to my reading. And it was clear. Maybe there are still things I haven’t see yet, but I know where is the way out.

It’s “That within” . And even if you have to face big challenges, “That within” has a voice which says “everything will be OK” And more than ever, I understand.



  1. beautifully worked through Maria. thank you for sharing your process - I love to go to the dictionary and thesaurus for simple clarity at times, too. It's funny how suddenly a simple use of words can shift a bigger idea or concept I'm trying to grasp - click - the lock opens and understanding walks in!

  2. Enthusiasm is the most important thing when taking on any big project.

  3. I need to talk a lot about it. But can't find the words.

    Karin, yes that "click" and a door opens. A door that was there but you couldn't see.

    Robert agree. Big or small "project" needs something to lift you up.
