iChing 46: Pushing Upward

The wise person, in harmony with fate, is sensitive but determined. Make a sincere effort to apply a determined effort against the forces of inertia, bending around obstacles that arise, and good fortune will follow. By remaining tolerant and flexible, you will be able to retain the conscious innocence that best fuels growth and advancement. Willpower and self-control are necessary to manage growth properly, but an inner enthusiasm for life is what drives it.
