Today: “Be keenly aware of the impact of your words and deeds” – I Ching

Be keenly aware of the impact of your words and deeds.  In the micro structure of the family and in the larger social structure you have a role that others look up to.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching

One in this situation must be keenly aware of his influence on others.
Maintain a healthy respect for the ripple effect of your words and deeds.
To some you serve as a role model.
You can either help shape their world or tilt them into chaos.
Show temperance and consideration to all.
