The Situation

27. I - The Corners of the Mouth (Providing Nourishment)
Above (in front): Kên - Keeping Still (Mountain)
Below (behind): Chên - The Arousing (Thunder)




The Judgement for the Current Situation

The Corners of the Mouth.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
Pay heed to the providing of nourishment.
And to what a man seeks
To fill his own mouth with.


The Image for the Current Situation

At the foot of the mountain, thunder:
The image of Providing Nourishment.
Thus the superior man is careful of his words
And temperate in eating and drinking.


Interpretation of the Changing Line(s)

Line 4: Turning to the summit
For provision of nourishment
Brings good fortune.
Spying about with sharp eyes
Like a tiger with insatiable craving.
No blame.

Line 5: Turning away from the path.
To remain persevering brings good fortune.
One should not cross the great water.


The Future

25. Wu Wang - Innocence (The Unexpected)
Above (in front): Ch'ien - The Creative (Heaven)
Below (behind): Chên - The Arousing (Thunder)


The Judgement for the Future

Innocence. Supreme success.
Perseverance furthers.
If someone is not as he should be,
He has misfortune,
And it does not further him
To undertake something.


The Image for the Future

Under heaven thunder rolls:
All things attain the natural state of innocence.
Thus the kings of old,
Rich in virtue, and in harmony with the time,
Fostered and nourished all beings.
