Today:”Great success will come from your endeavors as long as you maintain strength and stability and the positive projection to endure in the face of great adversity.” – From the I Ching

Enjoy the exuberance of your close-knit comrades.  Great success will come from your endeavors as long as you maintain strength and stability and the positive projection to endure in the face of great adversity.  “Anything is possible.”

This is the sign of true companionship.  The principals in this situation exchange energy, ideas and feelings, constantly invigorating and encouraging each other to new heights of Spiritual achievement and Self-discovery.  This exchange is not for the glory of the Team, but for furthering the process of each individual’s ‘Te’, or pure potentiality.
A quiet, wordless, self-contained joy, desiring nothing from without and resting content with everything, remains free of all egotistic likes and dislikes. In this freedom lies good fortune, because it harbours the quiet security of a heart fortified within itself.
Times of adversity are the reverse of times of success, but they can lead to success if they befall the right man. When a strong man meets with adversity, he remains cheerful despite all danger, and this cheerfulness is the source of later successes; it is that stability which is stronger than fate. He who lets his spirit be broken by exhaustion certainly has no success. But if adversity only bends a man, it creates in him a power to react that is bound in time to manifest itself. No inferior man is capable of this. Only the great man brings about good fortune and remains blameless. It is true that for the time being outward influence is denied him, because his words have no effect. Therefore in times of adversity it is important to be strong within and sparing of words.
