15. Modesty, Line 5

“It is favorable to attack with force.”

Modesty is not to be confused with weakness. If your motives and methods are in the right, make your move now.

………………………………………………………………………………

Taoist philosophy, and Eastern philosophies in general, are often criticized for being weak: for always advising withdrawal or surrender. Today’s line says: Not true.

The Book of Changes wants to guide you to making the right move at the right time.

The right move now is to “attack with force.”
