Daily Draw: Tao Oracle ~ Standstill Hexagram 12
"Inferior influences sometimes prevail" Brian Browne Walker
Mother once said, when she disapproved of a friend, "rise up to your betters, rather than lower yourself to lessers". Sounds like a real putdown but I understood her advice. I just didn't take it.
I'm reminded by this card she was right. Linda was a wonderful friend, but much older, a bad influence on a seventeen year old on a tear to get to life. Today's ten year olds seem to know and experience more than I did at seventeen. I'm sorry for them, life arrives soon enough.
