20 觀 Kuan
Viewing–Visions in Contemplation–Wind Over Earth

L20chingTurn inward for personal consultation. If you haven’t recently, perhaps it’s time before an early, mid, or late-life crisis unexpectedly sets in. Have you ever lived through an event that made you feel like an observer rather than a participant? You went through the actions but that was not your voice or hands doing the deeds. It was like a surreal out-of-body experience. Meditative contemplation can reconnect the disjoint mind back into the body. Recognize that simple thoughts can be profound, and complex thoughts can be muddled in confusion. A difficult mathematical equation can more easily be solved by factoring, separating and simplifying the equation into its component parts. A laborious task can be more easily completed if broken into organized steps. Don’t let your eyes deceive you. Make sure you understand what you see. If not, all you are doing is looking and not truly viewing the reality of the message.
