22. The Celestial Adornment
The hexagram resonates Amoghasiddhi Adorned with Amitabha’s Luminous Blaze. One can now rest in the highest good with a Natural Illumination that brings clarification and insight into unresolved issues. Hence this is the celestial illuminous hue that descends and promises confident success and quiet assurance under the protective mantle and guidance of divine intervention.
Grace is the transcendent function of the Unborn as it dissolves all barriers and initiates a spirit of affection for THAT alone which ushers in the nurturing tide of Noble Wisdom and adorns one with the brocade of deathlessness. Surrender to this grace and untold blessings will unfold like a thousand-petaled Lotus Flower.
