51. Shock, Line 1

“Shock comes — Oh! Oh! Then follow laughing words — ha! ha!”

A Shock comes and at first you are distressed. As you learn the lesson this Shock teaches you, your distress will change to joy.

…………………………………………

Example: Someone you are very close to, and very dependent, on dies. This Shock will shake your world. But, as you learn you can function fine on your own, whole new worlds open up to you.

The Book of Changes says: You cannot change the Shock that is about to hit you. But, as you adjust to it, you will see new opportunities

This is how the ancient Chinese said, “When God closes a door, he opens a window.”

Next: Future. “Enthusiasm”
