Today: Proceed unyielding with your allies – from the I Ching

Proceed unyielding with your allies as part of an organic movement.  Be patient and you will have success.

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

he leader should be in the midst of his army, in touch with it, sharing good and bad with the masses he leads. This alone makes him equal to the heavy demands made upon him. He needs also the recognition of the ruler. The decorations he receives are justified, because there is no question of personal preferment here: the whole army, whose centre he is, is honoured in his person.


The receptive brings about sublime success,
Furthering through the perseverance of a mare.
If the superior man undertakes something and tries to lead,
He goes astray;
But if he follows, he finds guidance.
Quiet perseverance brings good fortune.
