La perseverancia es ventajosa. No comer en casa trae buena fortuna. Es ventajoso atravesar la gran corriente. La imagen del poder dominante de lo grande. Tal es la manera correcta de estudiar, que no consiste en limitarse a conocer la historia, sino hacer de la historia una realidad actual utilizando sus datos.

The master said: "The perfected nature, sustaining itself and enduring is the gateway of life. Controlled Power is the hexagram of the true Sage. Only when you are not defending, do you activate the Controlled Power of the Great. Approaching the gateway of perception, you make the choice of what you will find. Do not listen with your mind, but listen with your vital force. Ordinary hearing does not go beyond the ears and the mind does not go beyond its symbols.
Your vital force is not wanting but waiting. Life brings together all that is void to itself. Thus you can master things and not be injured by them. Stand at the threshold, connect with your Te or vital force and simply observe.
Find comfort in your strength. In China, the lion protected the forests, and its likeness was used to protect the gates and temples. Another gatekeeper, the Dragon Carp, had only one goal: crossing the Dragon Gate. Beyond this Gate, many believed paradise could be found.
Like the salmon, the carp swims upstream and jumps the rapids, and came to symbolize human advancement and achievement in life. The Dragon Carp is a constant reminder of the pursuit of excellence, reflecting how following instinct makes obstacles non-existent.
Where the lion symbolizes great passion and fearlessness, the carp is a symbol of instinctual perseverance. This is your Te, the instinctual awareness that knows exactly where you need to be: in the here and now and it is perfect.
Transforming the illusion of how you must conquer and take, you can develop the powerful peacefulness that comes when you no longer see the world as a place of obstacles. Te is your instinctual endowment and connection to life.
When cultivated alongside of fearlessness, it is like water that finds its own course, without any sense of barriers. Water can dissolve mountains and evens out, regardless of where it flows. The power of Te connects you to the germinating power of life. This paradise is simply a place without boundaries. Creating movement even in the greatest things is what makes Tao mysteriously powerful.
The most submissive thing in the world can ride roughshod over the hardest in the world — that which is without substance enters that which has no crevices. This is the essence of Controlled Power. A lack of movement, connection or release has stored an incredible amount of Creative Power beneath the meditative Mountain of Keeping Still.
We can be drawn to another who is mysteriously powerful because of their silence. At some point however, we recognize that they might just be horrible communicators. Another may see our independence and power as a threat and seek to undermine it through actions meant to unseat us from our center.
Determining who is in charge in this situation becomes a lesson about assumptions, fears and the need for control as a power game ensues between very potent individuals. You may need to wait for the right moment to proceed, or tread carefully because the release can be explosive.
It can suggest a necessary respite or retreat in order to heal or recharge. It can also show a person afraid of their own anger so they retreat. The Creative desires expression, but rests beneath the immovable Mountain in unchanging form, so there can be a lot of energy building that will seek some type of release.
On a positive note, when the great tame themselves, others submit to their will so growing in a sense of power while you do nothing can lead to success.
You may feel held back, but trust that whatever is happening will lead to the expression of greater power in this situation. Not getting what you want, you get what you need. There may be a need to establish limits or boundaries that will allow for greater individual freedoms.
To tame another you may need to tame yourself, but make no mistake, this situation is highly charged. The standoff can be quite spectacular and is witnessed in nature during mating rituals, territorial fights and even at the molecular level so it is not necessarily bad.
There is no need to stop believing in the goodness of those you care about or serve. Nothing lasts forever and this situation will resolve itself. Learn to tame your response and be a better listener.
Changes to 18 Decay. Something is blocking your progress and without examining the misunderstanding or decay of the situation, further progress can only lead to danger.
This is a time to explore what you can learn about the obstacle through inaction. Changes to 22 Grace. You are held back from proceeding because of events beyond your control. This is a time to explore acceptance of what you are powerless to change.
Changes to 41 Decrease. You are kept on your toes because another proves difficult to handle and self restraint is necessary.
The way ahead is opening and you find a way to deal with a difficult situation or person. Powerful energy is now gathered by the strength of your will to proceed and by working in tandem with others. Identify goals and clarify limitations or boundaries and the way will open. Changes to 14 Great Possessing. That which has held you back is observed to be the reason for your growth. By taming a wild impulse into focused power your success is assured.
Since everything is under your control you can move forward. Interacting with another proves difficult but through the experience both harness great power and enlightenment. Changes to 9 Small Restraint. Something that was potentially a threat is now harmless.
Since you understand its nature you can make its power work for you. This leads to mutual trust and great success. Changes to 11 Peace. After a time of success you may find yourself at a crossroad where a difficult decision must be made. The way of heaven or Tao ignites your Te or inner knowing so follow what feels natural. When in doubt follow the current that life presents to you.
A great opportunity awaits because you have achieved the highest level of Controlled Power and have aligned with your Tao.
