Today's I Ching for Michael Moore
The coins have been tossed...
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 51 - Chen (Shock): There is an intimation of ease and development. When the time of movement comes, the subject will be found looking out with apprehension, yet smiling and talking cheerfully. When the movement, like a crash of thunder, terrifies all within a hundred li, he will be like the sincere worshipper, who is not startled into letting go his ladle and cup of sacrificial spirits.|
|The second line, divided, shows its subject, when the movement approaches, in a position of peril. He judges it better to let go the articles in his possession, and to ascend a very lofty height. There is no occasion for him to pursue the things he has let go, for in seven days he will find them.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and 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 Chen (Thunder), which is transforming into Tui (Lake). As part of this process, movement, initiative, and action are giving way to joy, pleasure, and attraction.|
