What Do You Do During Difficult Times?

posted by The MEGA Coach

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

“Preponderance of the Small”

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.  They do not strive after recognition or resolution or attempt to gain a higher position by conquering others.  Instead, they retreat into their 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 value.  During “storms and conflicts” being patient and acting at the appropriate time rather than “reacting” offers great benefits.

All things happen in their proper time.

Have a wonderful and prosperous week!

Keep Looking Up
A wise man shared with me, “Sometimes God puts you on your back so you can look up.” At times, life shows up with challenges.  The key is how to receive it - do we allow it, accept it and welcome it as our next mission or the next thing to learn and experience? The world is facing its t
