I Ching
by Martin Burke

Work on What Has Been Spoiled [Decay]

keeping still and gentle wind

what has been spoiled will have success
cross great water
three days -before and after the starting point

the wind blows
this is decay
the superior man rouses the people
and strengthens them

                             *

danger -a father and son
but no blame rests on the father
there will be good fortune

and no blame on the mother-
yield when it is the moment to do so

set right what has been spoiled-
there will be no great blame

be tolerant
in perusing one sees humiliation

in righting what has been spoiled by the father
one will meet with praise

neither kings nor princes-
he has higher goals
