Our conditions and circumstances fluctuate according to the times, which are always changing, so we have to be fluid and flexible in order to respond appropriately to each occasion as it arises. What is important changes with the times, and we have to change with them in order to maintain our balance and harmony, upon "the heaving waves of the wine-dark sea," in a "Then we did it like that, and now we do it like this," kind of way. It is incumbent upon us to develop our ability to flow with the movement of the moment, and not insist that things meet our expectations and desires. We have no reason to think that things should be different than they are. What do we need to do to respond appropriately to the situation that is developing as we watch? Our role is to do what needs to be done, and figure that out as we go along, hoping for enough stability to allow us to catch our breath.
