Today: – ”Use well the blessings which come to you.” – a reading from the I Ching

Use well the blessings which come to you.  Share freely so others can experience such grace as has come to you.  All will benefit.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's and subsequent translations of the I Ching

#14, line 3, #27
The Fire of clarity illuminates the Heavens to those below:
The Superior Person possesses great inner treasures — compassion, economy, and modesty.
These treasures allow the benevolent will of Heaven to flow through him outward to curb evil and to further good.  Supreme success.
You have become an instrument of Heaven’s will, offering a balance in the  world around you.  Because you can see clearly who most needs a miracle, Heaven’s bounty is being put at your disposal.
A Prince gives his treasures freely to those who can better use them.
A lesser man could not do this.
Beneath the immobile Mountain the arousing Thunder stirs:
The Superior Person preserves his freedom under oppressive conditions by watching what comes out of his mouth, as well as what goes in.
Endure and good fortune will come.  Nurture others in need, as if you were feeding yourself.  Take care not to provide sustenance for those who feed off others.  Stay as high as possible on the food chain.
