Today: Give up what you don’t need – from the I Ching

yinyang02paperGive up what you don’t need. Don’t cling to your faults.  Once you recognize your shortcomings, others will be there to assist.  They will bestow great treasures on you.

The text reads:
A man’s faults often prevent even well-disposed people from coming closer to him. His faults are sometimes reinforced by the environment in which he lives. But if in humility he can bring himself to the point of giving them up, he frees his well-disposed friends from an inner pressure and causes them to approach the more quickly, and there is mutual joy.”
