The Man's journey through the Waters
The Man in the Waters of Gleam
We see the Man Wanderer crossing the waters with his heart and mind
set on his goal, the Heavens help him, but his feet are unsteady.
Though order and discipline are important for accomplishing things,
they can also be limiting. A path is not just for walking, but also
seeing, feeling, and living.
The Waters, with their unstable and ever changing nature, teach us
that plasticity is as important as discipline. Here we see a very
focused person following the path of strong winds. It is wise for
him to remember that though things are going well , the status of
things can change from one minute to another, and one should be prepared
for such an occasion. The Waters (the circumstances) are not at all
stable, and no one can expect to ride elegantly on an untamed horse.
Good cowboys know that the mix of firm and light hand will make a
horse a faithful companion.
Keys: When the circumstances are difficult to comprehend, it is
more important than ever to remain firm while waiting for a sign showing
the right time to make a move.
