55: Great Abundance

Abundance comes into full flower when a group is unified and the power of its leadership is at its peak. This is like the sun at midday -- a high noon of clarity, insight and progress. Whether this refers to a national cycle, a business boon or a period of personal abundance, peak periods can be brief. It is important to bale your hay while the sun is shining.

During a period of abundance, it is skillful to show benevolence and to share the fruits of one’s good fortune. Think of good deeds now as a hedge against scarcity in the future. This reading bodes well for the raising of children and the nurturing of a healthy family or any close-knit group.
