Today: ride out the quagmire – I Ching

Stagnation.  Doe not make bold attempts to change things.  Don’t try to feel better. Hold to your inner truth and ride out the quagmire.

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

Heaven and earth are out of communion and all things are benumbed. What is above has no relation to what is below, and on earth confusion and disorder prevail. The dark power is within, the light power is without. Weakness is within, harshness without. Within are the inferior, and without are the superior. The way of inferior people is in ascent; the way of superior people is on the decline. But the superior people do not allow themselves to be turned from their principles. If the possibility of exerting influence is closed to them, they nevertheless remain faithful to their principles and withdraw into seclusion.
