Today: “Deal with what is in front of you, then move on” – I Ching

Deal with what is in front of you, then move on.

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

When grass on a mountain takes fire, there is bright light. However, the fire does not linger in one place, but travels on to new fuel. It is a phenomenon of short duration. This is what penalties and lawsuits should be like. They should be a quickly passing matter, and must not be dragged out indefinitely. Prisons ought to be places where people are lodged only temporarily, as guests are. They must not become dwelling places.
