Contemplation

heron_waitingWind and water, waiting in silence, contemplation and observance, a great blue heron watches.

From the Legge translation of I Ching Hexagram 20:

The Chinese character from which this hexagram is named is used in the sense of both seeing and being seen. The theme is the sovereign and his people — how he shows himself to them, and how they in turn perceive him…In the Judgment the ruler is portrayed as a worshipper at the commencement of a sacrifice. He is the great Manifester.”
