Today: Get used to being the wanderer – from the I Ching

Get used to being the wanderer; a stranger in a strange land.  Allow what is familiar and unfamiliar.  Be gracious and don’t judge by comparison.  Bring peace.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching
WHEN A man is a wanderer and stranger, he should not be gruff nor overbearing. He has no large circle of acquaintances, therefore he should not give himself airs. He must be cautious and reserved; in this way he protects himself from evil. If he is obliging toward others, he wins success.
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.
