Today's I Ching for Muhammad Ali
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 55 - Feng (Abundance): Progress and development is intimated. When a king has reached the point of abundance, there is no occasion to be anxious through fear of a change. Let him be as the sun at noon.
|The second line, divided, shows its subject surrounded by screens so large and thick that at midday he can see from them the constellation of the Bushel. If he go and try to enlighten his ruler who is thus emblemed, he will make himself to be viewed with suspicion and dislike. Let him cherish his feeling of sincere devotion, that he may thereby move his ruler's mind, and there will be good fortune.
|The third line, undivided, shows its subject with an additional screen of a large and thick banner, through which at midday he can see the small Mei star. In the darkness he breaks his right arm, but there will be no error.
|The situation is shifting, but neither Yin (the passive feminine force) nor Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 54 - Kuei Mei (The Marrying Maiden): The action will be evil, and in no way advantageous.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Chen (Thunder), which represents movement, initiative, and action.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Li (Fire), which is transforming into Tui (Lake). As part of this process, brightness and warmth are giving way to joy, pleasure, and attraction.
