Today: Small gains lead to great accomplishments – from the I Ching

yinyang02paperSmall gains today, with perseverance, will gather awesome power and lead to great accomplishments.  If you are on the side of righteousness, everything will gather to serve your goals.

The pushing upward of the good elements encounters no obstruction and is therefore accompanied by great success. The pushing upward is made possible not by violence but by modesty and adaptability. Since the individual is borne along by the propitiousness of the time, he advances.
“…a time when inner worth mounts with great force and comes to power.
“For that is truly great power which does not degenerate into mere force but remains inwardly united with the fundamental principles of right and of justice. When we understand this point – namely, that greatness and justice must be indissolubly united – we understand the true meaning of all that happens in heaven and on earth.”
