4. Youthful Folly

“At the first oracle I inform her . . . “

You will be entering a situation that is completely new to you. Admit your lack of knowledge and experience. Find a teacher and follow her advice.

……………………………………………………………………..

Personally, I have found my teacher, and it is the I Ching, the Book of Changes. Who or what can your teacher be?

The Book of Changes says: The future of Great Power is Youthful Folly, more modernly called Inexperience.

You can move forward in the direction you choose, but be up front with everyone about your Inexperience. There’s no shame in learning.

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.”
