Patriot Day

"Water flows to unite with water, because all parts of it are subject to the same laws. So too should human society hold together through a community of interests that allows each individual to feel himself a member of a whole. The central power of a social organization must see to it that every member finds that his true interest lies in holding together with it,..." - The I Ching: Pi / Holding Together (8).

"Where men are to be gathered together, religious forces are needed.

But there must also be a human leader to serve as the center of the group.

In order to be able to bring others together, this leader must first of all be collected within himself.

Only collective moral force can unite the world.

Such great times of unification will leave great achievements behind them.

This is the sigificance of the great offerings that are made.

In the secular sphere likewise there is a need of great deeds in the time of GATHERING TOGETHER."
The I Ching: Ts'ui / Gathering Together (45).

Never forget.
