Today: Rely on your discipline and devotion – I Ching

Rely on your discipline and devotion to a righteous path to navigate life.  With the power of the universe behind you you are given what you need to succeed.  Do not stray as unsavory and opportunistic elements will inevitibly seek to undermine your efforts.

Having achieved this attitude, which requires constant self-abnegation, it is important for him to hold to it and not to let himself be led astray.
This hexagram indicates a situation in which the principle of darkness, after having been eliminated, furtively and unexpectedly obtrudes again from within and below.
The inferior man rises only because the superior man does not regard him as dangerous and so lends him power. If he were resisted from the first, he could never gain influence.
