Hexagram Six/Line One

Six at the beginning [yin at bottom] means:
If one does not perpetuate the affair,
There is a little gossip.
In the end, good fortune comes.

'Gossip' - Norman Rockwell

WHILE A CONFLICT is in the incipient stage, the best thing to do is to drop the issue. Especially when the adversary is stronger, it is not advisable to risk pushing the conflict to a decision. It may come to a slight dispute, but in the end all goes well.
