Have a Magnificent Day!

From The I Ching or Book of Changes by Brian Browne Walker:

In a great storm the wise bird returns to her nest and waits patiently.

During difficult and dangerous conditions you should not be seduced into struggling, striving or seeking solutions through aggressive action.  Success is met only by waiting modestly for the guidance of the Creative.

Trying times are a test of our integrity and commitment to proper principles.  The ordinary person reacts to challenges with fear, anger, mistrust of fate and a stubborn desire to strike out and eliminate difficulty once and for all.  While the temptation to act in this way can be great, to do so can only lead to misfortune and the loss of hard-won ground.

The way of the superior person faced with difficulty is that of nonaction rather than action.  She does not strive after recognition or resolution or attempt to gain a higher position by conquering others.  Instead, she retreats into her center and cultivates humility, patience and conscientiousness.  On the path of acceptance, self-inquiry and self-improvement we obtain the aid of the Creative and meet with success after the storm has passed.

It is a wise person who observes the guidance presented in the moment and acts accordingly.  As it is the ego that tempts you to act or react to situations without looking properly.  Foresight and wisdom come from your intuition and offer great benefit.

All things happen in their proper time.

Have a wonderful and prosperous week!
