Today: “Change your perception” – from the I Ching

Obstacles may be overcome by looking at them from a nw perspective.  Change your perception.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's and subsequent translations of the I Ching

#39

When meeting an impasse, the Superior Person turns his gaze within, and views the obstacle from a new perspective.

Good fortune lies along this course.
The Obstacle lies in obstinance.
An insistence on only one way of proceeding has brought things to an impasse.  You may either continue banging your head with irresistible force against this immovable object, or you might step back and survey this situation from a fresh perspective.
