Today: Allow the good ideas to form and manifest – from the I Ching
A time of growth. Be prepared to meet difficulties with perseverance. Allow the good ideas to form and manifest before taking a firm direction and implementing them.
Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching
“ TIMES OF GROWTH are beset with difficulties. They resemble a first birth. But these difficulties arise from the very profusion of all that is struggling to attain form. Everything is in motion: therefore if one perseveres there is a prospect of great success, in spite of the existing danger. When it is a man’s fate to undertake such new beginnings, everything is still unformed, dark. Hence he must hold back, because any premature move might bring disaster. Likewise, it is very important not to remain alone; in order to overcome the chaos he needs helpers. This is not to say, however, that he himself should look on passively at what is happening. He must lend his hand and participate with inspiration and guidance.
