Today’s I Ching – 61 – Sincerity in the Centre
Wind above, Lake below.
Sincerity follows Discipline in the order of the Hexagrams.
Yes, in a voice of authority, as if to recapture
The attention of a wandering mind .
I had dared to entertain a cynical interpretation
Of wind over water. Spirit continues:
Discipline for its own sake is worthless,
More or less, unless it can be
Transferred to a purpose, other than
Its own. However, sincere effort
Is of high value, even if
Progress is slow.
Should I ask Spirit what His reading says
To me? No. I pass,
As in a game of cards.
