Innocence (The Unexpected)



Innocence. Supreme success.

Perseverance furthers.

If someone is not as he should be,

He has misfortune,

And it does not further him

To undertake anything.


Under heaven thunder rolls:

All things attain the natural state of innocence.

Thus the kings of old,

Rich in virtue, and in harmony with the time,

Fostered and nourished all beings.

6. Innocent action brings misfortune. Nothing furthers.

5. Use no medicine in an illness Incurred through no fault of your own. It will pass of itself.

4. He who can be persevering Remains without blame.

3. Undeserved misfortune. The cow that was tethered by someone Is the wanderer's gain, the citizen's loss.

2. If one does not count on the harvest while plowing, Nor on the use of the ground while clearing it, It furthers one to undertake something.

1. Innocent behavior brings good fortune.
