36. Darkening of the Light, Line 4

“One gets at the very heart of the darkening.”

You can see clearly now what the problem truly is. If you do not see even the possibility of improvement, it is a good time to leave this path entirely.

……………………………………………………………………….

Some problems just cannot be “solved.” What is currently your most pressing problem?

The Book of Changes says: You are finally able to view this problem realistically. If it’s something you can’t change, and you can’t adapt to, it’s time to move on.

Which is apparently going to be more difficult than we thought . . .

………………………………..

Tomorrow: Line 5. ” . . . as with Prince Chi.” (Meaning: You’re stuck.)

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.”
