Today: – ”The causes of the current state of corruption must be eradicated from its roots to the last remaining vestige. ” – a reading from the I Ching

The causes of the current state of corruption must be eradicated from its roots to the last remaining vestige.  Initial actions must not cause reaction that could thwart the entire movement.  Its participants must attract willing and potential allies to the cause, amassing irresistible strength in numbers and commitment.

#49, line 1, #31
A revolutionary Change must be made forcibly.  There is no negotiating with the Established Order.  Perfect timing is essential.
Let the abuse of power become apparent and oppressive to those around you before making your move.  Lay the groundwork, sow the seeds for Revolution without tipping your hand prematurely. You will need a strong foundation, because you will have to bring about this necessary change alone.  You cannot count on popular support, so you must wait until there is massive dissent.  Then the avenue for your assault will be cleared.
Changes ought to be undertaken only when there is nothing else to be done. Therefore at first the utmost restraint is necessary. One must become firm in one’s mind, control oneself — yellow is the color of the mean, and the cow is the symbol of docility — and refrain from doing anything for the time being, because any premature offensive will bring evil results.
There is no greater natural law in the Cosmos than Attraction.
From the magnetic pull of an atom’s nucleus to the centrifugal force that spirals a galaxy, the face of the universe is shaped by Attraction.
On a human scale, it is Attraction that fuels procreation and furthers our species.  Yet it is also Attraction that spawns greed and covetousness, threatening our extinction.  Attraction is the underlying force of the situation in question.  You are refined or debased by the objects of your desire.
