Today: Go to the well – from the I Ching

Go to the well.  Draw from fundamental wisdom that doesn’t change and is there for all time and let it guide you in life.
The text reads (from Richard Wilhelm’s translation):
Thus the well is the symbol of that social structure which, evolved by mankind in meeting its most primitive needs, is independent of all political forms. Political structures change, as do nations, but the life of man with its needs remains eternally the same-this cannot be changed. Life is also inexhaustible. It grows neither less nor more; it exists for one and for all. The generations come and go, and all enjoy life in its inexhaustible abundance.
