3. Difficulty at the Beginning

“Difficulty at the Beginning works supreme success.”

The storm you are in will clear. Do not hide. Do not turn back. A new sense of order is about to emerge.

…………………………………………………………

Let’s say you lost your good job due to the pandemic. You had to take a shitty job to survive. Or you had to quit your job to stay home and teach your kids. Plug your situation in here _____________ .

The Book of Changes says: Don’t give up hope. And don’t waste your time and psychological energy wishing or waiting for things to get back to “normal.”

There’s a “new normal” coming. Prepare to adapt yourself to it as gracefully as possible. This will bring supreme success.

The Yi has one word of caution for us, Changing Line 6.

…………………..

Tomorrow: Changing Line 6. “Horse and wagon part.”

How the Book of Changes Works

“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 in the questioner, the ‘current’ is activated, and the given situation is illumined.”
