Today’s I Ching – 41 – Reduction
Mountain above. Lake below.
Reduction follows Solution.
Solution suggests success in solving problems or
A particular problem. Reduction expresses the
Potential or real cost, perhaps to others.
The Mountain is above the lake it has
Risen out of, perhaps forgetting that
It owes its life to what is now
Beneath it. Mountains have been
Known to sink back into the water
They pulled themselves out of.
Prosperity at the expense of others
Or of the environment,
May not last.
You and I?
Not you and I.
