Today: Use your great treasures to ignite the world – I Ching

You have the physical resources and the means to use them to accomplish great things.  With them you can ignite the world.

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

The sun in heaven above, shedding light over everything on earth, is the image of possession on a grand scale.
The time is favorable – a time of strength within, clarity and culture without. Power is expressing itself in a graceful and controlled way. This brings supreme success and wealth.
Great possession consists not only in the quantity of goods at one’s disposal, but first and foremost, in their mobility and utility, for then they can be used in undertakings, and we remain free of embarrassment and mistakes. The big wagon, which will carry a heavy load and in which one can journey far, means that there are at hand able helpers who give their support and are equal to their task. One can load great responsibility upon such persons, and this is necessary in important undertakings.
The great man continues the work of nature in the human world. Through the clarity of his nature he causes the light to spread farther and farther and to penetrate the nature of man ever more deeply.
