Today's I Ching for Michael York
The coins have been tossed...
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 4 - Meng (Youthful Folly): There will be progress and success. I do not go and seek the youthful and inexperienced, but he comes and seeks me. When he shows the sincerity that marks the first recourse to divination, I instruct him. If he apply a second and third time, that is troublesome, and I do not instruct the troublesome. There will be advantage in being firm and correct.
|The third line, divided, seems to say that one should not marry a woman whose emblem it might be, for that, when she sees a man of wealth, she will not keep her person from him, and in no wise will advantage come from her.
|The fourth line, divided, shows it subject as if bound in chains of ignorance. There will be occasion for regret.
|The situation is shifting, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 50 - Ting (The Caldron): There is an intimation of great progress and success.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Ken (Mountain), which is transforming into Li (Fire). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to brightness and warmth.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'an (Water), which is transforming into Sun (Wind). As part of this process, danger and the unknown are giving way to penetration and following.
