Today: Be steady in your progress toward your goals – from the I Ching
Be steady in your progress toward your goals. Adaptability circumvents obstacles, brute force slams into them. Be patient and strong.
Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching
“The pushing upward of the good elements encounters no obstruction and is therefore accompanied by great success. The pushing upward is made possible not by violence but by modesty and adaptability. Since the individual is borne along by the propitiousness of the time, he advances. He must go to see authoritative people. He need not be afraid to do this, because success is assured. But he must set to work, for activity (this is the meaning of “the south”) brings good fortune.“
