56. The Wanderer, Line 4

She obtains property and an axe. My heart is not glad.

Accumulation of “things” will not make you happy. It will only make you worry more about keeping them.

…………………………………………………………

Line 4 reminds you: By staking out a territory, and using an axe to defend it, you only strengthen your ties to where you are now. Is this where you want to be, forever? The Yi says, “You are meant to be moving on. Don’t tie yourself down to your current situation. You need to be able to move ahead quickly and easily when the time is right.”

……………………..

Tomorrow: “She goes out into her courtyard and does not see her people. No blame.”
