I Ching
by Martin Burke

Break-through (Resoluteness)

joyous lake and creative heaven

speak openly to the king
but do not resort to arms

the superior man
does not rest on his virtue

                             *

if you are not equal to your task there will be danger

alarm in the city yet fear nothing

the superior man is often spoken against
yet there is no blame

allow, at the proper moment, yourself to be led
these words are hard but accurate

clean the field of weeds
walk in the middle way

misfortune will come
