Today: Do not accept bad faith gestures – I Ching

The time reveals many relationships, in private and public life, that are unfulfilled, unsatisfying and profoundly unhealthy.  It is a situation that is currently front and center in the public eye.
As a remedy, there is a tendency to offer oneself as a prostitute, so that some needs may be met.  The fact that this is happening as a widespread phenomena among public figures serves as an example of what NOT to do.  It leads to the collapse of all common goals and struggles.  If the temptation to accept bad faith gestures for temporary relief from want is dismissed, then the opportunity for growth, expansion and well-being is opened.  More permanent and sustainable options may be pursued.  Catastrophe can be averted.
