25. Innocence

In the springtime when thundering "life-essence"
begins to move again under heaven...  Commence.
All things begin to sprout'n grow in abundance.
Under heaven rolls thunder's unexpected resonance.
The virtuous kings of old were free of dissonance
fostering and nurturing all of Creation's advance.
So it is the same with benevolent ruler and prince
who, drawing on their spiritual wealth, whence
they care for Life and Culture in timely sequence.
Movement that follows heaven's law is Innnocense.
The mind shall be natural, and of clear conscience,
without deliberation and guile-encumbrance.
Supreme success only thru sincere perseverance.
If someone is not "for real" there is mischance.
Whatever is undertaken shall see no advance.
"Unless you, also, become like these little ones...
Into heaven's kingdom you'll not gain entrance".
Show a constant devotion to this divine stance.
The superior one attains an unsullied innocence
that leads to right acts and intuitive confidence
without ulterior thought of reward or recompense.
Not everything is intuitive in the higher sense.
Only that which is right in heaven's accordance.
Misfortune awaits slaves of unreflecting wants.
THE LINES:
NINE AT THE BOTTOM:
Innocent behavior brings good fortune.


SIX IN SECOND PLACE :
One is not dependent on harvest while plowing
nor on the use of one's ground while clearing.
If one has the means of being self-supporting:
One can do things for the sake of experiencing.


6 IN 3RD PLACE: Misfortune Undeserved.
One is innocent, and is unsuspecting-natured,
leaving one's 'funding cow' outside-tethered.
In this intransigent time the cow is procured
(One loses one's cow and another is prospered).
"We must adapt to the times." People concurred.


NINE IN THE FOURTH PLACE:
What would happen if the rich distributed wealth?
The rich would soon get it back with more wealth.
So it is with the evil who distribute their evil.
The evil shall get back evil with more evil.


NINE IN THE FIFTH PLACE IS:
An unexpected evil may come from without
(that one had nothing to do about).
Don't rely on outside means to rub it out
but quietly let it burn itself out.


NINE IN THE TOP POSITION:
Innocent action brings misfortune.
When, in a given situation,
the time's not right for more action
one must wait in quiet innaction.
