36. Darkening of the Light

“The light has sunk into the earth.”

The sun continues to shine, even when our spot on earth is in shadow. It is the same for you. You must keep your inner light shining through a dark time. It will pass.

………………………………………………………………………….

Hard times are upon us, but they will not last forever. The earth keeps turning, and we will be back in the sun again.

In the meantime, you need to keep your inner light — your Inner Truth — burning. Protect and nurture whatever “coals” are glowing in there.

You will have to wait for the time you can fan it into flames.

The Yi has lots of extra advice on how to survive this difficult time: Changing Lines 1, 2, 4, and 5.

Tomorrow: Line 1. “Darkening of the Light during flight.”

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.”
