Peace Out H-11


Hexagram 11

I. The Oracle 

A. Hexagram Eleven is very closely related to PEACE, hence, the coming together of heaven and earth, The Great Merger. There is nothing wrong with attraction, that’s exactly what happens when by nature, opposites do blindly seek one to the perfectly matched other. 

Another variation would be the idea of -heaven and earth mingling within the reality of man,- or better yet, -They Join and make something better, a better person.-(5) The time is correct for drastic movements in any direction; at best become pervasive with your plan, but not to the point of stepping on the foot of the master of ceremonies as you enjoy euphoric contentment at this time. Again, there is an advantage in whatever direction one might take at this time, but if you do, do not force your opinions on those you might meet along the way, for now, -do not use the Army.-(2)

   1. Now is a good time to cross the great water. I say that because as the image depicts, we see that of haven below and earth above, this is a time of natural peaceful resolutions which is as planned by the command of nature, which is beyond man’s control. It is the nature of existence to be in accord with this due happenstance today. There is some headway if one recognizes that the earth is a part of the solar system and that we must first connect and unite here on earth at this time before connecting with Mars or Venus, although that is a distance wish.

The internet has made it possible to reach out and say good morning to someone on the other side of earth within Nanoseconds, we need to connect and unite and move in tune with the nature of time. Technology man. Above all, keep your beliefs, but stop looking for a payphone; because times are changing, so make modifications to your lifestyle.

   2. Peace :
This is a time of merging for the greater good. One big greenhouse, we are all in. At this time this is the image that should be on one’s mind. This is not a thing that is of a permanent state, meaning it is just for the moment, now.

The ebb and flow of time, accept it and move with it. During these times it is said that -openness is the prerequisite of Influence,-(2) hence, transparency is the best course of action right now. Although the times are of peaceful contentment, abound, do not stray from your appointed, or planned path. (2) The general to carry is, “#Be-consistent.”

B. The Image

  1. Earth above, Heaven below, at this moment all is vice-versa.
      a) The small go and the big come, the idea of pervading. This can be described as a situation where there is an expansion with the notion of continually spreading of prosperity via communicating the idea pervading, or connecting as we come into accord with the appointed time. (3)
      b) Thus there is a great advantage in moving forward and making our crucial connections at this time for the greater good of all on earth, particularly, “his universe.” The preparation is for the next phase, Obstruction. (3)

II. My interpretation

  A. All I can see is the idea of one planet at a time. We need to focus on the up-keep of this planet right now. We know what will happen if during the course of one’s invasive, and opinionated ideas, being imposed on others by force, but now there is a need for a pervasive idiom that finally makes sense, self-actualization. Take care, there is only one Sun. Do you know anyone from any other planet? We are on the same planet, yet we are distant with our plans for the future of the earth as a whole.

The Sun is a double edge sword, it could help the earth by maintaining life, or it could over radiate the oceans over time, again if left unchecked, environmental equilibrium imbalance could result in great losses. What we want to see at this time is a seed which is of heavenly qualities, with the ability to procreate, as it forces its way upwards, or up and down, within the earth. Thus, we can say the great approaches, the uniting of heaven and earth, the image of Peace. Good fortune, Success, and Growth. (1)

1. Again, now is a good time to cross the great river, in plain words, there will be going and coming with no loss. The hexagram has more to do with that of expansion and less to do with that of Splitting Apart as is the case with Hexagram 23.
Remember, no one can stop Heaven and earth from joining. Before you were born this had happened before, you cannot stop the process from happening as Heaven and Earth self- checks itself. You are here because that was your wish to be born, do not think you can now control equilibrium as it exists within this notion of now. Be a good neighbor and help keep the earth clean for the next group wishing to be born who will hopefully help the earth to evolve, and bloom. I also see the fall planting of seeds today.

Good Morning H-10


Hexagram 10

I. The Oracle 

 Treading Carefully, with this we see it is best at this time for “The Superior Man,” or one to display correct conduct, there will be some progress if one does not, intentionally or unintentionally step on the Tiger`s Tail. We must guard our speech and behavior so that any premature actions do not bring the ceiling down on all in the room. Hexagram Ten in short means not to tread on the tail of the strong, their position is just that, the place of the strong. When all puzzle pieces are correctly adjutant they are in their correctly appointed places. With respect to all, do not overreach your authority. 

The Judgement

   1. The Tiger`s Tail.
   2. This means that one must mind his or her manners or bad things will happen, in most cases, staying within the means, or middle way is the appropriate action at this time. The will of the people will suffice.

B. The Image

  1. Heaven above, the lake below, hence, we see that of the sky above that of a marsh. There the Tiger hides with his mighty claws waiting for the prey, you are not by nature his prey, so he ignores your scent, but you must be careful not to step on his tail as you are now following very close to, 11 Peace. Focus on health and exercise.
      a) The image, thus the superior man discriminates between high and low, and thereby fortifies the thinking of the people. Carry Respect.
      b) Treading on the Tiger`s Tail. It does not bite the man. Success.


“When you are certain of ultimate success, it doesn’t matter even if you stomp on the tiger’s tail. The most important thing is to take action, when conditions are favorable. But great caution and consideration should be taken beforehand, so that the outcome is clear before you make your move.” ~ 10 Trending Carefully

II. My interpretation

A. The story is that of the one-eyed man who thinks he sees all, but steps on the Tiger`s Tail, because he only sees things in one way, that of a Bravo who at the moment is acting out, and we can say, his aims are good but his modus operandi is somewhat too forceful, given the current situation. If only this person would be somewhat apprehensive during these well-tuned times.  If so, there will be good fortune for all. It is the prudent action of the people that should prevail, that mere act, will not be colluded towards any circumstance. If only the man would not jester on his own accord, but instead, act in accordance with the will of the people, let the audience vote on the answer, which will be the correct dynamics of that time If this man is not of a quiet type and of a somewhat solitary type demeanor while occupying his correct potion, then all will not fall into place, completion is what we are after now folks. Mind you again, he is not the one the tiger is stalking, but if he steps into the wrong concerns without the consent of his people, there will be peril. Now if he does indeed watches his steps and heed the omens of time, all is well for all. There will be a crowd, you will be challenged, talking equals six, that of conflict, just do this, stay calm and proper

Good Morning H-62



Hexagram 62

Bookmark and Share

By: James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram sixty-two is Xiao Guo, or Small Exceeding. Additional interpretations include Preponderance of the Small and Small Surpassing. The lower trigram is Gen: bound or mountain, and the upper trigram is Zhen: shake or thunder.      

B. The Judgment

   1. The Preponderance of the Small. Success.
       Perseverance furthers. Small things may be done; great things should not be done.
   2. The flying bird brings the message: It is not well to strive upward, 

       It is well to remain below. Great good fortune.

C. The Image

  1. Thunder on the mountain: (you heard?)
      a) The image of Preponderance of the Small.
      b) Thus in his conduct, the superior man gives preponderance to reverence.

           In bereavement, he gives preponderance to grief.
           In his expenditures, he gives preponderance to thrift. 

II. My interpretation 

A. “Small Exceeding

Being somewhat modest is the theme of this hexagram. Do not overextend beyond your natural limits, although internally you might feel this is a time for you to take on more, for now, stay within your limits, sir.
As a means of staying in tune with the times, we are told to dwell on the idea of thrift and that of accepting the rewards of our small workings. Taking the low road would be a good idea for now. Again, do not fly too high as to overextend our assets, take things as they come good or bad, be subjective about all matters for the moment.
Do not get overinvolved with anger, impatience, or despair. Although you do hold a precarious position at the moment, which is above and beyond the ordinary, negative tenets such as anger, impatience, and despair, could lead to an avoidable downfall.

Have the mindset of humility and acceptance of your appointed position, be creative and take things as they come. Do not be so much objective with entrenched and rigid mandates. Take it one step at a time.

Good Moning H-45



Hexagram 45

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram forty-five follows it’s course as its’s attempts to garner speech and influence others at a crucial gathering. I think they already know that.  


   1. Gathering Together. The King approaches his temple.
        Everything is now favorable, all is good.
   2. Success, Perseverance furthers in the long-term.

        To bring great offerings creates good fortune.
         It furthers one to undertake something.

B. The Image

  1. The Lake over The Earth
      a) The image of Gathering Together.
      b) A good time to meet with the great man.

      c) Thus the superior man renews his weapons —
           In order to meet the unforeseen.   

II. My interpretation 

A. “Stay the Course”

It is very wise that one cares for one’s self as one might care for another. Illness can at some point spread to that of the caregiver. 
Gatherings are good for directly keeping all prominent stakeholders in the loop, but there is a half chance of contracting some type of contagious bug. You know that thing that Mosquitoes do. 
All is well because someone brought a very valuable gift to the table. Could it be knowledge — or is it that over time the caregiver has with great success overcame most societal illusions — and to that extent, endured.
Now, remember, to expect illness is one matter, but don’t accept mal-directed public sentiment which mandates these terms — that is not the way the bus, in reality, is headed. Look into your crystal ball and find somewhere very auspicious to go. And remember also, there’s always going to be your strategic responsibilities, and eating away at that, will be small malaise attacks upon your shinning merits, in your judgments, “Be reasonable.” 
Above all, think of the results of being sincere to the end with your aforesaid intentions, not wavering in our own set responsibilities. That is just a mirage, “Stay The Course”, be true to yourself and the people you care for, never mislead.
