Ch'ien, The Creative, Sky Ken, Keeping quiet, Mountain. The power of darkness grows. Light moves away to safety, so that darkness can't control it. This retirement is not a man's wish, but a natural law. It is the right way of keeping one's forces.
It shows the man how to recede on time and manner. The man concentrates all his strengths to advance successfully, avoiding, not hiding things.
We are at at a point in which retirement was the best thing we could do. This way, we have avoided facing things or people that would have destroyed us. But moving away is not running away, it is gathering strengths on a distance for future. There comes the moment, then, in which that step forward will make us win.
We are about entering a stage in which we will have to decide what to do: if we move on or we stay. The opponent is strong. We will have to be cautious to defeat him. How can we do that? First, we retire properly to continue later in better conditions, and with a full knowledge of the forces involved. This way, there will be success.
