From the I Ching by Brian Browne Walker:
“All clans and families must have a superior person at their center if they are to prosper and succeed. Therefore, in order to improve your family, company, nation or world community, YOU must begin by improving yourself.
If you observe healthy families you will always see present in them three qualities: love, faithfulness and correctness.
When we truly love others, we are naturally kind, gentle and patient with them. When we are faithful to others, we place proper principles and conduct above temporary influences like anger, desire or greed. When we practice correctness, we spiritually nourish ourselves and all those around us. When all three qualities are cultivated, a healthy clan springs naturally into place.
The difference between paying lip service to these ideals and practicing them is profound. If you advocate high ideals and actions to others but do not embody them yourself, your influence will disintegrate for lack of proper foundation. Therefore, in order to inspire superior qualities in others, you must first instill them in yourself.
When modesty, acceptance, equanimity and gentleness become deeply ingrained in your character, they will flow steadily outward from you. Soon you find yourself enmeshed in a web of healthy relationships, and in this there is great good fortune.
In the very center of each of us there dwells an innocent and divine spirit. If we allow ourselves to be guided by it in every situation, we can never go wrong.”
The I Ching is a wonderful living, breathing oracle, a patient and all-seeing teacher. With a sincere approach, it will guide you to prosperity, understanding and peace of mind.
