Today: ”Keep up the pressure despite the danger.  Keep your manners and you will be OK.” – a reading from the I Ching

Keep up the pressure despite the danger.  Keep your manners and you will be OK.

#10
You tread upon the tail of the tiger.
Not perceiving you as a threat, the startled tiger does not bite.
Success.
You have reached a perilous point in your journey.
This is a real gamble — not a maneuver, not a calculated risk.
The outcome is uncertain.
If it goes as you hope, you will gain — but if it turns against you it will cause serious injury, at least to your plans.
The best tack is extreme caution and a healthy respect for the danger involved.
In terms of a human situation, one is handling wild, intractable people. In such a case one’s purpose will be achieved if one behaves with decorum. Pleasant manners succeed even with irritable people.
