Hold firm, keep to your responsibilities and just allow the indignities, injustices and transgressions being thrown about randomly, for now. A storm is coming, having full popular support, which will sweep clean the evil as if it never existed. See yesterday’s reading.

#36 Line 5, #49
This time calls for a saintly effort to turn the other cheek. You have been deliberately injured. Going blow-for-blow will only escalate this war. Abstain from vengeance. Show all watching that you are above it. Sidestep your aggressor’s headlong charge, giving him the opportunity to fall on his face. Prince Chi lived at the court of the evil tyrant Chou Hsin, who, although not mentioned by name, furnishes the historical example on which this whole situation is based. Prince Chi was a relative of the tyrant and could not withdraw from court; therefore he concealed his true sentiments and feigned insanity. Although he was held a slave, he did not allow external misery to deflect him from his convictions. This provides a teaching for those who cannot leave their posts in times of darkness. In order to escape danger, they need invincible perseverance of spirit and redoubled caution in their dealings with the world. The Superior Person reads the Signs of the Times and makes the Season apparent to all. The support you need will come only after the deed is done. Renewed forces, however, will provide fresh energy for exceptional progress. Persevere. All differences vanish. A revolutionary Change must be made forcibly. There is no negotiating with the Established Order. Perfect timing is essential. Let the abuse of power become apparent and oppressive to those around you before making your move. Lay the groundwork, sow the seeds for Revolution without tipping your hand prematurely. You will need a strong foundation, because you will have to bring about this necessary change alone. You cannot count on popular support, so you must wait until there is massive dissent. Then the avenue for your assault will be cleared.
“There is one center of consciousness beyond the thousand-petal lotus called circumvent force. When the consciousness lives in that, then one becomes a human being, totally serviceful, and absolutely one-pointed.” Yogi Bhajan
