Today's I Ching for Stephen Colbert
The coins have been tossed...
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 2 - K'un (The Receptive): That which is great and originating, advantageous, correct and having the firmness of a mare. When the superior man must move, if he takes the initiative he will go astray. If he follows, he will find his proper lord. The advantage will be seen in his getting friends in the southwest, and losing friends in the northeast. If he rest in correctness and firmness, there will be good fortune.|
|The sixth line, divided, shows dragons fighting in the wild. Their blood is purple and yellow.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 23 - Po (Splitting Apart): It will not be advantageous to move in any direction whatever.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram K'un (Earth), which is transforming into Ken (Mountain). As part of this process, docility and receptivity are giving way to stillness and obstruction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'un (Earth), which represents docility and receptivity.|
