20. Contemplation

“Full of trust they look up to her.”

Spend some quiet time looking at your situation from all directions. When you do this, you will enlighten yourself; you will also be seen as an example to others.

Contemplation has a double meaning: Seeing inwardly, as with meditation; and being seen, meaning others observing your actions.

We received this hexagram without changing lines. The Book of Changes is telling us that this advice is not just for today. We are advised to take our Inner Truth seriously, and to Contemplate it, and live it, every day.

Sounds to me like the Yi is saying: Keep reading this blog!
