Today: “We must be careful how we approach the problem of living in a time of darkness.” – a reading from the I Ching

We must be careful how we approach the problem of living in a time of darkness.  Do not fall into the practices of others.  Do not judge others for their shortcomings.  To not seek reprisal for personal injury.  Do not be duped.

This week’s messages are clear.  See previous readings

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

One must not unresistingly let himself be swept along by unfavorable circumstances, nor permit his steadfastness to be shaken. He can avoid this by maintaining his inner light, while remaining outwardly yielding and tractable. With this attitude he can overcome even the greatest adversities.
In some situations indeed a man must hide his light, in order to make his will prevail in spite of difficulties in his immediate environment. Perseverance must dwell in inmost consciousness and should not be discernible from without. Only thus is a man able to maintain his will in the face of difficulties.
In a time of darkness it is essential to be cautious and reserved. One should not needlessly awaken overwhelming enmity by inconsiderate behavior. In such times one ought not to fall in with the practices of others; neither should one drag them censoriously into the light. In social intercourse one should not try to be all-knowing. One should let many things pass, without being duped. .
