The Situation

The Judgement for the Current Situation

Enthusiasm. It furthers one to install helpers
And to set armies marching.


The Image for the Current Situation

Thunder comes resounding out of the earth:
The image of Enthusiasm.
Thus the ancient kings made music
In order to honor merit,
And offered it with splendor
To the Supreme Deity,
Inviting their ancestors to be present.

As a hair clasp gathers the hair.


The Future

Above (in front): K'un - The Receptive (Earth)
Below (behind): K'un - The Receptive (Earth)


The Judgement for the Future

The Receptive brings about sublime success,
Furthering through the perseverance of a mare.
If the superior man undertakes something and tries to lead,
He goes astray;
But if he follows, he finds guidance.
It is favorable to find friends in the west and south,
To forego friends in the east and north.
Quiet perseverance brings good fortune.


The Image for the Future

The earth's condition is receptive devotion.
Thus the superior man who has breadth of character
Carries the outer world.
