Hexagram 36: Candle in a Cave: When the darkness of insanity reigns, it may be wise to retreat into stealth. Even the smallest sound, the faintest glow of light, can attract unwanted attention.
It is best that your own brilliance stay “hidden under a bushel basket.” That is, your thoughts and efforts should be quiet, self-contained, and protected, as much as possible, from harmful external influences.
Try not to become too depressed or anxious; this period will pass. Just endure it for now and inwardly preserve your self-confidence, while outwardly remaining cooperative and flexible. The time to assert yourself will come. Avoid looking too far ahead if you have not yet achieved your goals — that will only bring regret and longing, which can eat away at your inner resources. Do not needlessly awaken dormant forces of opposition. During dark, unsettled periods, it is best to step gingerly around the sleeping dogs.
Hexagram 45: Stronger Together: Assembling a team or group for a noble cause brings success.
