Hexagram 32

Bookmark and Share

By: James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram 32 is Heng, or Preserving. Further variations are Duration and Constancy. The lower trigram is Xun: ground or wind, and the upper trigram is Zhen: shake or thunder.     

B. The Judgment

   1. Duration. Success. No blame.
       Perseverance furthers.
   2. It furthers one to have somewhere to go.  

C. The Image

  1. Thunder and wind: the image of duration.
  2. Thus the superior man stands firm

      And does not change his direction.   

II. My interpretation 

A. “Constancy”

The key idea with this hexagram is staying our original goal, which is, maintaining a dogma so to speak, from start to everlasting. Staying the course will, just as an attack on a city, not mean that that municipality must for the sake of damage, misalign its original aim.
A good sign of constancy is the sun rising every day. I remember once here recently I awake at 9: pm at night and I was thinking it was about 9:00 am. I went out for the morning walk and witness people queuing to go into the night clubs. I kept thinking secretly when was the sun coming up?  Be consistent as the rising sun.
From the start, there must be some type of small steps towards the desired goal – such as with my college motto which states, one has to “Start To Finish”, but not only that, in between the start and finish clause there must consistency to the tune of maintaining one’s integrity throughout the extent of steps taken towards a favorable goal. Another example would be the movement of a football from one end zone to the other without breaking the rules of the game.
Holding on to the past as we move forward is like a court stenographer in a modern courtroom, which is no longer needed due to the modern age of video cameras from all angles. But having live feeds of all activity within a courthouse could cause somewhat of a problem, because we would be overcorrecting our true intensions.

One must maintain his or her modus operand throughout the process scaling towards their well-established outcomes.

Good Morning H-54



The Marrying Maiden

I.The Oracle 

A. Gen. Meaning

Now with this situation, I can say with very little doubt, that there will be nothing to be gained by advancing in just about any direction at this time. “Go Easy.” The Marrying Maiden is accompanied by her younger sister who is the vested consort. 

With these terms, all is well, but if by chance the consort is the older of the two, all will not go well. And of course, twins would make for a very difficult situation. It’s a “Domestic Dispute”, he turns and walks away. Time Out. Go and believe what you see. 

On all accounts, the marriage can without penalties be canceled until one or two of the variables are favorably adjusted. To hold such an important event as a wedding at such an inopportune moment, would be the same as a cloudy sky but no rain.

   1. The Marrying Maiden.
   2. This means the end of life as a maiden and the beginning of motherhood for a young girl, that is if that position is adopted at the correct time.

B. The Image

  1. Thunder over the Lake
      a) The focus, one must know this, in order for there to be a favorable ending, one must take measures to ensure that there is a correct and timely beginning. One must have a plan just as in business, a journal of some sort. Make adjustments as you might deem viable to the outcome of your personal plan from, “Start To Finish.”
      b) Thus the superior man is careful in the differentiation of things so that each finds its correct place and time. Now I ask you, is the moon nearly full now? The situations ripen as we move towards the day of that celestial event.

II.My interpretation 

A. The main theme with Hexagram 54; do not be overoptimistic at this time, check all variables of a crucial upcoming event. Things, according to the general precedence of this hexagram, could go wrong during the duration of a quick marriage, if granted at an inopportune moment.

   1. I agree, no one is perfect but people try at best to ensure that the happiness of that significant other is handled with care when planning such a memorable event as an, one and only, everlasting wedding, or something of great significance. I can also say this, after the next full moon, go for it. -“This is full, that is full.”- Could be that is why, -Honey Moon.- Marriage is good, but we must start with a good beginning in order to end with a good and auspicious duration which should lead to that of Abundance, all parts working right, crank-out some more of those. Remember the situation from the start, there where two brides and one groom, what would you do? Always do the right thing.
