Today: What has been taken too lightly is now wreaking havoc – I Ching
What has been taken too lightly is now wreaking havoc. It would be simple to nip something sinister and unacceptable in the bud. Now it’s much more difficult and damage is done. Take seriously frivolous diversions that lead to apathy and eradicate them before it is too late.
Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching
The inferior man rises only because the superior man does not regard him as dangerous and so lends him power. If he were resisted from the first, he could never gain influence.
