Today: ”When you are contradicted or face resistance, don’t blame, don’t judge.   Don’t force the issue.  Follow your own path.” – a reading from the I Ching

When you are contradicted or face resistance, don’t blame, don’t judge.   Don’t force the issue.  Follow your own path.

#6
An expansive void where nothing can dwell.
Even though he sincerely knows he is right, the Superior Person anticipates opposition and carefully prepares for any incident.

Good fortune if your conflict results in compromise.
Misfortune if your conflict escalates to confrontation.
Seek advice.
Postpone your crossing to the far shore.
Conflict is a necessary part of life.  Tension upon the strings of a violin can make majestic music.  The critical mass of two hydrogen atoms trying to occupy the same space fuel the sun that nourishes our solar system.
Most conflicts you face in life are the result of your Path converging with another’s.  Your Path is not his, and one Path is not necessarily more right than the other.  Can you work together to remove the blockage?
