above Li The Clinging, Flame
below Li The Clinging, Flame
The Clinging. Perseverance furthers.
It brings success.
Care of the cow brings good fortune.
That which is bright rises twice:
The image of Fire.
Thus the great man, by perpetuating this brightness,
Illumines the four quarters of the world.
Change at the beginning means:
The footprints run crisscross.
If one is seriously intent, no blame.
Change in the second place means:
Yellow light. Supreme good fortune.
Change in the third place means:
In the light of the setting sun,
Men either beat the pot and sing
Or loudly bewail the approach of old age.
Change in the fourth place means:
Its coming is sudden;
It flames up, dies down, is thrown away.
Change in the fifth place means:
Tears in floods, sighing and lamenting.
Change at the top means:
The king uses him to march forth and chastise.
Then it is best to kill the leaders
And take captive the followers. No blame.
