4. Inexperience / Youthful Folly, Line 4

“Entangled folly.”

Don’t buy in to the schemes or fantasies of others. And examine your own beliefs, to be sure you are not clinging to a fantasy of your own.

………………………………………………………………………………………………

You are warned not to involve yourself in the dramas of others.

The Book of Changes says: Now is not the time to get into cryptocurrency. Or any other scheme being urged on you by friends or family.

And don’t perpetuate any of your own fantasies, like “He’ll come around and we’ll be back together soon.” or “This job really does have opportunities for advancement.”

You need to face reality and disentangle yourself from situations that primarily benefit others. Our Future reading indicates that Opposition lies ahead.

…………………………….

Tomorrow: 38. Opposition

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.”
