“Approach your Fear without fear. Welcome it into your life. For, Fear can be as great a teacher as Love.”

“The Lake needs the Earth to cradle it. The Earth needs the Lake to nurture its flora and fauna. Neither can flourish without the other.  It is the same with Love and Fear.”

(just received these downloads – 8:50 AM HST, 2-08-2014)

ALSO, FROM THE “CHINESE BOOK OF CHANGES”:

19 – Lin / Approach – Earth-over-Lake

19 – Fear – Welcome it!

Above K’UN THE RECEPTIVE, EARTH

Below TUI THE JOYOUS, LAKE

The Image

The earth above the lake:

The image of APPROACH.

Thus the superior man is inexhaustible in his will to teach,

And without limits in his tolerance and protection of the people.

The earth borders upon the lake from above. Just as the lake is inexhaustible in depth, so the sage is inexhaustible in his readiness to teach mankind, and just as the earth is boundlessly wide, sustaining and caring for all creatures on it, so the sage sustains and cares for all people and excludes no part of humanity.
