Today's I Ching for Michael York
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 61 - Chung Fu (Inner Truth): Inner truth moves even pigs and fish, and leads to good fortune. There will be advantage in crossing the great stream. There will be advantage in being firm and correct.|
|The fifth line, undivided, shows its subject perfectly sincere, and linking others to him in closest union. There will be no error.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 41 - Sun (Decrease): If there is sincerity in sacrifice, there will be great good fortune, freedom from error, firmness and correctness that can be maintained, and advantage in every movement that shall be made. In what shall this sincerity in the exercise of sacrifice be employed?|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Sun (Wind), which is transforming into Ken (Mountain). As part of this process, penetration and following are giving way to stillness and obstruction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Tui (Lake), which represents joy, pleasure, and attraction.|
