Today: Don’t try to change anything now – I Ching

Continue to stay put.  Don’t try to change anything now.  Wait for the right time.

Any movement leads to danger
Frugal measures now will lead to greatness

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

This pictures a time when inferior people are pushing forward and are about to crowd out the few remaining strong and superior men. Under these circumstances, which are due to the time, it is not favourable for the superior man to undertake anything.  This suggests that one should submit to the bad time and remain quiet. For it is a question not of man’s doing but of time conditions, which, according to the laws of heaven, show an alternation of increase and decrease, fullness and emptiness. It is impossible to counteract these conditions of the time. Hence it is not cowardice but wisdom to submit and avoid action.
