only when you’ve seen the Way

Only when you’ve

seen the Way do you practice

the Way — if you don’t see, what do you

practice? The emergence of the Way is like space —

what is there to cultivate in space? Those who practice

the Way by all kinds of contemplation are fire

stirring fire looking for foam. Just observe

the manipulation of the puppets —

when the strings are cut, it

all stops at once.

Perseverance in stillness,

in both thought and deed, forms a

noble heart. The ultimate fruit of a noble

heart is complete peace

of mind.

The best effort

one can make is the

gentlest effort: wei wu wei.

Quietly, persistently direct the

mind toward emptiness. When

all thoughts and ideas have

dissipated, then make no

further effort. Just

breathe.

 

This is the only

practice required of a

human, the best one, the one

that perfectly purifies

our lives.

If we persevere a great success is at hand.

 
The literal translation of “chun” is “a blade of grass pushing against an obstacle as it sprouts out of the earth.” Receiving this hexagram is a sign that beyond the difficulties and pressures that surround you, a success lies waiting. In order to bring it fully into the light, you must be patient and persevere in nonaction.
 
No matter how fervently one desires to resolve a situation, to intervene impatiently now will only hinder the progress of good fortune. Accept and bear with the discomfort of chaos without attempting to push it away. Allowing it to clear of its own accord, in its own time, is the only way of insuring a subsequent blossoming of success.
 
Hold to proper principles. In your actions, seek and respect the counsel of the Sage. Allow those whose hearts are true to assist you wherever possible; be tolerant of all others. In this way the blessing that now lies hidden will come into the open.
