Today's I Ching for Robin Williams
The coins have been tossed...
|The present 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 first (bottommost) line, undivided, seems to be thus addressed, "You leave your efficacious tortoise, and look at me till your lower jaw hangs down". There will be evil.
|The second line, divided, shows one looking downwards for nourishment, which is contrary to what is proper, or seeking it from above, which will lead to evil.
|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 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 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 Chen (Thunder), which is transforming into K'an (Water). As part of this process, movement, initiative, and action are giving way to danger and the unknown.
