11. Peace

“The small departs, the great approaches.”

Peace is possible. Relationships may not change, but your attitude toward them will. Disagreements will “depart” as you realize their relative insignificance. You will be free to focus on the larger benefits of the association.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

What relationship do you have that is constantly in conflict? Spouse, mother, sister, co-worker, boss, BFF . . . whatever it is, it’s a conflict you can’t solve by simply walking away. These people are too important to you.

The Book of Changes says: You don’t always have to “win” every disagreement. Peace will come when you view this relationship as a whole, with many benefits to you, as well as the irritations.

Peace will come when you don’t sweat the small stuff. And remember — it’s ALL small stuff.

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.”
