The Taming Power of the Small

The superior man is not motivated by a will ‘o the wisp, you see. He’s dealing in something deeper than momentary whims and desires. For this reason, he is able to take the long view of things. He is satisfied with doing small things when big things cannot be done. And in this way, we come again to the image of The Taming Power of the Small. Remember the “dense clouds” that I referred to with regard to this image. The image is also connected in the Chinese imagination with a period of time immediately prior to the establishment of the Chou dynasty, when one of its founders, King Wen, found himself trapped as it were in the court of the last of the Chin tyrants. This was not a good time for bold measures. He had simply to bide his time and wait for the proper moment for action. In fact, it required that he attend primarily to his own private affairs, and in the central verse associate with the image of The Taming Power of the Small, the oracle says, “Thus the superior man refines the outward aspect of his nature.” You can easily see how this advice pertains your options in your particular situation.
