57. The Gentle Wind / Proceeding Humbly, Line 6

Proceeding Humbly under the bed. She loses her property and an axe. Perseverance brings misfortune.”

Sometimes, in looking for something or someone to blame for our current circumstances, we come up empty. If that is the case with you, let go of the search. Proceed Humbly past your difficulties.

……………………………………………………………………….

Line 2 also told us to “Proceed Humbly under the bed,” which meant to look for a hidden enemy, perhaps a person, but maybe your own fear, or anxiety, or impatience.

With Line 6, The Book of Changes says: Give it up. To keep searching for something or someone to blame is wasting your time and energy. To persist in this will bring misfortune.

Our Future Reading advises us to meet what is to come by being Receptive.

…………………….

Tomorrow: Future: “Quiet Perseverance brings good fortune.”
