Today: – ”It is time to address the rampant corruption that has been allowed to fester through apathy.” – a reading from the I Ching

It is time to address the rampant corruption that has been allowed to fester through apathy.  Begin in measured, solid ways to repair all the damage that has been done.  If the bad actors are not held to account, completely discredited, and exiled from their positions of influence, then we will be complicit in their works and share the fruits of the corruption.  Take it easy. Not too fast.  The transformation may take awhile.  Leave no possibility for regression.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's and subsequent translations of the I Ching

#18, line 4, #64
The Superior Person sweeps away corruption and stagnation by stirring up the people and strengthening their spirit.
Supreme success.
Before crossing to the far shore, consider the move for three days.
After crossing, devote three days of hard labor to damage control.
You are blessed with an opportunity to resuscitate that which others have abandoned as beyond repair.  This ruin wasn’t caused by evil intention, but by indifference to decay.  Just by addressing yourself to the problem, you exhibit a new awareness, a fresh perspective.  This is a time of recovery, renewal, regeneration.
Tolerating the malpractices of the father will lead the son to ruin.
The Superior Person examines the nature of things and keeps each in its proper place.  
Too anxious the young fox gets his tail wet, just as he completes his crossing.  To attain success, be like the man and not like the fox.  Resist the rush to completion.  Anticipation of fulfillment may callous you before you have fully absorbed the lessons of the journey.
The endpoint of this Quest will only prove to be the threshold for another.
You are short steps from Mastery on this plane, yet you stride toward Ignorance of the challenges lying beyond.
Savor this accomplishment.
Fully Become.
Take full possession of your world before embarking to discover the next one.
That voyage begins soon enough, and you will reminisce about this one.
These are the Good Old Days.
