Today: Be willing to accept advice and guidance – from the I Ching

Be willing to accept advice and guidance from the sources you trust.  It will build character and fill in gaps in your experience.  If you have a teacher, listen.

 

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching

IN THE TIME OF youth, folly is not an evil. One may succeed in spite of it, provided one finds an experienced teacher and has the right attitude toward him. This means, first of all, that the youth himself must be conscious of his lack of experience and must seek out the teacher. Without this modesty and this interest there is no guarantee that he has the necessary receptivity, which should express itself in respectful acceptance of the teacher. This is the reason why the teacher must wait to be sought out instead of offering himself. Only thus can the instruction take place at the right time and in the right way.
