15. Modesty

“Modesty creates success. The superior woman carries things through.”

Are you being realistic about what you want, and when you want it? Expecting too much, too soon, insures you will “fail.” Modesty, coupled with perseverance, will get you where you want to go.

…………………………………………………………………………….

What do you want? What situation concerns you the most right now?

The Book of Changes says: Plug that situation into this advice. Go slow and proceed steadily in pursuit of what you want.

The Yi also sent one bit of cautionary advice, Changing Line 2.

…………………………………

Tomorrow: Line 2: “Your devotion to the right path will be tested.”

………………………………..

“The way in which the Book of Changes works can best be compared to an electrical circuit reaching into all situations. The circuit only affords the potentiality of lighting; it does not give light. But when contact with a definite situation is established through the questioner, the ‘current’ is activated, and the given situation is illumined.”
