33 - Thirty-Three
Tun / Retreat
The tranquil Mountain towers overhead, yet remains this side of Heaven:
The Superior Person avoids the petty and superficial by keeping shallow men at a distance, not in anger but with dignity.
Such a retreat sweeps the path clear to Success.
Occupy yourself with minute detail.

If you know anything about the MOON. She is very emotional. So, during FULL MOON, you will have sturred up emotions and mixed feelings because she is pulling on your insides, and the water inside you. You're gona feel it more now than ever before probably because our solar system is in a higher state of consciousness than most people. Listen to your feelings, they are most likely yours to let go. Its a good time to pull an all nighter! Hahah

There is a certain myth or esoteric in Taoism that I believe may go or even be identified with the energy, where it is known as the "Woman(or Spirit) of the Valley" in Taoism. It is believed, from what I remember that is usually depicted as dark, or cold spirit, being a "Guardian Spirit of Sort" of a/or the valley that has something to do with the essence of life. It is even believed that this spirit existed before the earth and heavens in some taoist quotes.
Like I said, usually starts of cold and shrewd at first(Like a woman) then some how becomes..neutral or warm in a way.
I can't exactly remember how the quotes describe this spirit, since I read it from a tao book I read a few years ago, but it does remind me of such a thing from what I experienced.

Strange topic over all. I find it strange that some have felt doom and others energy. I have had a really bad week or so, out of nowhere I have been anxious, short of breath, sad. I have felt unloved and unlovable, useless, that it was time for me to die, and I believe Wednesday was the day I sat and mourned my life/up coming death. It felt so real!
