That Chiquita Sticker

Daily Draw: Tao Oracle ~ Arousing

Hexagram 51
Shock frightens us, our assumption is it is always bad
Do not resist the unpleasant circumstances
Do not allow shock to propel you into negative conduct
Mired in resistance, living in ego
Repeated shocks occur, quiet is a refuge
Engaging invites disaster.

This hexagram needs to be pasted to my forehead
How could I possibly engage a world governed by madmen.
How can my grief matter against a world filled with grief, how could my resistance possibly matter. Some time chatting with my little girls may be in order.

My banty rooster Peanut, about four inches, he grew to an enormous six or seven inches, and is impeccable in his rooster duty. He also prefers his women larger than himself. Perhaps there is a lesson in that.
