Today: contemplate the universe; remain free – from the I Ching

If you can contemplate the underlying workings of the universe, you can make great contributions to the health and well-being of the community and nation.  This would require an independence of thought and action, not a party to others’ agendas.  Serve the governing structures, but do not become a part of any fixed structure.  You should remain free to choose your associations and maintain friendly relations with them.

A wanderer has no fixed abode; his home is the road. Therefore he must take care to remain upright and steadfast, so that he sojourns only in the proper places, associating only with good people. Then he has good fortune and can go his way unmolested.
