This is the middle way, not clever, but applicable in everyday life. Never overreaching, the embodiment of practical approach and common sense. One who heals through simple methods learned from observation and tradition.
Think on a small scale, do little things that lead to the large solutions, begin with yourself and work out in a steady and painstaking way building bridges and smoothing the path where it is rough. Do nothing to arouse defenses in others. Work openly with only the benefit of all the world in your heart and all will succeed eventually.
You are moving into a time when you will need to act in a conservative manner examining your options with care and moving slowly. There will be opportunities that seem to good to be true and those that seem to far a reach. Somewhere in the middle is a path that will suit you and those who may rely on you.
You may need to look to a simpler and practical way of resolving issues or you may need slow down and meditate on adjusting your point of view to see the path of least resistance where all that is necessary is to position yourself effectively and await the solution.
There is a challenge coming your way in which you will have to draw on your inner resources of strength and instinct to succeed. It is not time to be clever or fancy. Stick with methods that have been proven empirically and if that fails, trust the most steady course and stick to it.
“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.”
