Today: “Your advice and example go unnoticed, with possible dire consequences.  Shine even brighter, and do not react in order to gain the influence that is required.” – from the I Ching

Your advice and example go unnoticed, with possible dire consequences.  Shine even brighter, and do not react in order to gain the influence that is required.

9 – Nine. Hsiao Ch’u / Gentle Restraint

Winds of change high in the Heavens:
Air currents carry the weather.
Dense clouds blow in from the West, but still no rain.
The Superior Person fine tunes the image he presents to the world.

Small successes.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

No matter what you do, the fruit of your labors never seems to ripen.
Your reward remains just out of reach.
Men have gone mad from such anticipation.
Don’t lose your balance lunging for the brass ring.
While the Fates continue to restrain you, go them one better and display a self-generated restraint and grace.
Look for the humor in the situation.

Six in the fourth place means:

By gaining confidence, the man keeps control of the conflict, avoiding the blood that could be spilled by fear.
No mistakes.

If you’re sincere, blood vanishes and fear gives way.
No blame.

Blodd stains

If one is in the difficult and responsible position of counselor to a powerful man, one should restrain him in such a way that right may prevail. Therein lies a danger so great that the threat of actual bloodshed may arise. Nonetheless, the power of disinterested truth is greater than all these obstacles. It carries such weight that the end is achieved, and all danger of bloodshed and all fear disappear.
1 – One. Ch’ien / Creative Activity

Heaven above and Heaven below:
Heaven in constant motion.
With the strength of the dragon, the Superior Person steels himself for ceaseless activity.

Productive Activity.
Potent Influence.
Sublime Success if you keep to your course.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The time for action has come.
You now have the focus and the stamina necessary for accomplishing great tasks.
The path before you is being cleared and reward lies ahead.

Today: “I remember when Mahatma Gandhi was imprisoned in a jail. When he was released, he requested, “Can I stay one week more?”” Yogi Bhajan

“I remember when Mahatma Gandhi was imprisoned in a jail. When he was released, he requested, “Can I stay one week more?” They asked what kind of guy is he? He said, “It is a very big jail; there are a lot of people here and I have been teaching a special course on meditation that will take a week more to finish. If I am extended a week, I can teach these people and I’ll be grateful if you allow me to stay in here.” The superintendent said, “We will charge you four rupees, half a dollar a day for that week if you want to stay; otherwise, you better get out, we don’t need you anymore.” Can you believe that kind of consciousness? His consciousness was that he never felt imprisoned.” Yogi Bhajan

Tao Te Ching – Verse 37 – The Tao never does anything, yet through it all things are done

Tao Te Ching – Verse 37

The Tao never does anything,
yet through it all things are done.
If powerful men and women
could center themselves in it,
the whole world would be transformed
by itself, in its natural rhythms.
People would be content
with their simple, everyday lives,
in harmony, and free of desire.
When there is no desire,
all things are at peace. Continue reading “Tao Te Ching – Verse 37 – The Tao never does anything, yet through it all things are done”
