What is next?

Around a week ago i told a friend i wished my life would be quiet, uneventful. Peaceful. A bit like it is now to be honest. I don’t know if this will be given to me. I don’t know what life has in store for me.

Right now i’m in an in between stage. Or so it feels to me. I am working. I am living in a house with a friend. But i am thinking of this changing line in the I Ching:

53. Chien / Development (Gradual Progress)

Six in the fourth place means:
The wild goose goes gradually draws near the tree.
Perhaps it will find a flat branch. No blame.

A tree is not a suitable place for a wild goose. But if it is clever, it will find a
flat branch on which it can get a footing. A man’s life too, in the course of its
development, often brings him into inappropriate situations, in which he
finds it difficult to hold his own without danger. Then it is important to be
sensible and yielding. This enables him to discover a safe place in which life
can go on, although he may be surrounded by danger.

A flat branch. That is where i am right now. Unsure, uncertain. But safe for now.

I could be wrong of course. This could be it. This could be my life. Anyway, i need to come to peace with it before i can move on.
