Today's I Ching for Rudi Bakhtiar
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 22 - Pi (Grace): He should find a free course, but there will be little advantage if he advance and take the lead.|
|The third line, undivided, shows its subject with the appearance of being adorned and bedewed with rich favours. But let him ever maintain his firm correctness, and there will be good fortune.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 27 - I (Providing Nourishment): With firm correctness there will be good fortune. We must look at what we are seeking to nourish, and by the exercise of our thoughts seek for the proper aliment.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Ken (Mountain), which represents stillness and obstruction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Li (Fire), which is transforming into Chen (Thunder). As part of this process, brightness and warmth are giving way to movement, initiative, and action.|
