I Ching Wisdom May 14

Decrease

Decrease is part of the rhythm and flow of life. Just as the good and expanding doesn’t last forever neither does the phase of decrease. Accept the situation and be prepared to give up something. Maintain inner calm, have faith in yourself and act with integrity. Be prepared to help others rather than being helped yourself, and if you have to follow rather than lead, do so with good grace. Do not worry about the outcome, for long term success is indicated.

This phase is about overcoming self indulgence, and being in control of your mental and emotional life, rather than letting it control you. Complaining and seeing yourself as the victim of circumstances will not help you create a balanced outlook. Instead, seeking ways to be of service to others, even though your own circumstances are not ideal, will change your life quickly and for the better.
