Today's I Ching for Liam Neeson
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 first (bottommost) line, divided, has respect to the dispelling of ignorance. It will be advantageous to use punishment for that purpose, and to remove the shackles from the mind. But going on in the way of punishment will give occasion for regret.
|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 fifth line, divided, shows its subject as a simple lad without experience. There will be good fortune.
|In the topmost line, undivided, we see one smiting the ignorant youth, but no advantage will come from doing him an injury. Advantage would come from warding off injury from him.
|The situation is changing rapidly, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 5 - Hsu (Waiting): With sincerity, there will be brilliant success. With firmness there will be good fortune, and it will be advantageous to cross the great stream.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Ken (Mountain), which is transforming into K'an (Water). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to danger and the unknown.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'an (Water), which is transforming into Chi'en (Heaven). As part of this process, danger and the unknown are giving way to strength and creativity.
