36. Darkening of the Light, Line 5

. . . as with Prince Chi.

Prince Chi could not withdraw from the court of the tyrant Chou Hsin. It is the same with you — whether it’s your family, your relationship, your job, your social circle — you are stuck where you are for now. Maintain your Inner Truth.

………………………………………………………………………………………

Our final changing line tells us: The Darkening of the Light will continue into the foreseeable future. These are dark times, and they won’t get any better soon.

The Book of Changes says: Don’t let go of your inner light. You will not have to sort packages for Amazon forever. Keep your flame alive while you endure the Dark.

The immediate Future of Darkening of the Light will have challenges of its own.

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.”
