This time I'm just: Observer
Find your own rhythm:
Let impressions and events
What has actually happened?
And what does it mean -
Detached from me,
From my personality?
This time I'm just:
[I am safe. I am warm.]

The significance of the characters »approach« (19) and »contemplation« is that in part they give and in part they take.
The earth above the lake: the image of approach. Thus the superior man is inexhaustible in his purpose to teach and without limit in suffering and protecting the people.
Approach has sublime success. Perseverance furthers. In the eighth month comes misfortune.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
