Today: Compromise but don’t be compromised – I Ching

When all order is turned on its head, it’s largely due to confusion among and between those in charge and who are led by them.  Followers tend to follow blindly.  Seeing this, you cannot force the issue.  They will only be moved by someone whose authority they recognize.  In this case, the solution resolved either by clearing the confusion replacing the leaders.  Only by holding to your principles with inner strength and outward clarity will you exert any influence in the matter.  It’s not that you shouldn’t compromise.  Just don’t be compromised.

Today:”Just like in the ocean you can feel waves ” Yogi Bhajan

“Just like in the ocean you can feel waves that were generated from a far away distance, so in the mind you have thoughts and feelings from the entire universe and every other person. The places and people you are most attuned to and attached to are what usually fill your stream of thoughts. As you become more neutral and non-attached the scope of those thoughts and feelings widens.” Yogi Bhajan
(via Ram Anand)

Today: Perseverance and steadfastness have prevailed – I Ching

Perseverance and steadfastness have prevailed in a time of adversity.  The consciousness has changed but its effects are not yet realized.  A new time has arrived along with the promise of good fortune. With it comes the responsibility of stabilizing the newfound consciousness  and giving vigilant attention to the pressures that want to drag it backwards toward the old order.
