Good Morning H-53



Hexagram 53

by James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram fifty-three parallels that of self-development, or just plain old developmental change.  The situation is named Jian or infiltrating. Additional variations are just as I have noted, development, gradual progress, and advancement. The lower trigram is gen: bound or mountain. The upper trigram is xun: wind.    

   1. Development, The maiden is given in marriage.
        Good fortune brings good fortune.
   2. Perseverance furthers.

B. The Image

  1. On the mountain, a tree.
      a) Now we can see the image of developmental growth.
      b) Thus the superior man abides in dignity and virtue,

          in order to improve the mores.

II. My interpretation 

A. “Development

Good day to get out there and exercise, and enjoy the outdoors as it develops into spring. All-day we see progress in our right now evolving environment. We are now moving from the notion of hexagram fifty-three to that of hexagram fifty-four the marriageable maiden. But in this instant, we must quickly marry the young maiden, not so much in the next hexagram 54. We should be cultivating for the next phase when it comes to the hexagram that follows the current one, keynote marriage.

As we progress towards the goal of meeting spring mornings, let us not forget the people who fell out of formation during our yearly flights from the fall to spring again. The flight through the last couple of months of winter has been stop-and-go but we are at this successful point. Now is a good time to lighten the load on our old pack mules. give a little, even if it’s money, but giving a little of your time is more crucial. Just showing face brightens the day of a lot of people unaware of the effects of Qi, live it and give it.

Hexagram 13

Bookmark and Share

By: James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram 13 is Tong Ren or Concording People. Additional interpretations include Fellowship with Men and Gathering Men. the lower trigram is Li: radiance or fire. The upper trigram is Qian: force or heaven.        

B. The Judgment

   1. Fellowship with Men in the open.
       Success.
   2. It furthers one to cross the great water.
       The perseverance of the superior man furthers.

C. The Image

  1. Heaven together with fire:
      The image of Fellowship with Men.
  2. Thus the superior man organizes the clans
      And makes distinctions between things.

II. My interpretation 

A. “Fellowship”

 With this hexagram, we see a man who for all apparent reasons joins in fellowship with others who are somewhat not of his kind. He does so because they are within close proximity to his dwelling. If he was to limit his friendship to that of his closes family ties, there would be cause for regret, being that his social adaptions would be somewhat limited in scope. To take it even further, to do so would be as the tale of “The Allegory of the Cave” by Plato, signifies. It is the story of a group of people in a cave, and not knowing what the real world is really all about, like unto an Amazon tribe out in the wildness but on a different scale.

It is the job of the superior man to know what is what and to point this out preferably to the people nearby first. To know more one must extend his or her range of knowledge of prominent current issues, not just homegrown knowledge, not to the tune of, we only use chopsticks.
In this passage, we see a call for universal brotherhood ill regardless of inconsistencies. To serve is to serve. Always extend service to the betterment of all into the one.

Good Morning H-57



Hexagram 57

Bookmark and Share

By: James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram 57 is called Xun, or Ground. Additional variations include The Gentle, the Penetration wind and Calculations. Its lower and upper trigrams are identical, being Xun: ground or wind.       

B. The Judgment

   1. The Gentle. Success through what is small.
       It furthers one to have somewhere to go.
   2. It furthers one to see the great man.

C. The Image

  1. Winds following one upon the other:
      The image of The Firm Penetrates the middle;
      What is willed is fulfilled.
  2. Thus the superior man

      Spreads his commands abroad
      And carries out the will of Heaven. 

II. My interpretation 

A. “The Gentle”

With this hexagram we see a person who is somewhat in doubt as to when he should capture the opportunity to move forward. This is due to the disposition that he or she has, without cause, placed upon themselves.

A cleansing is needed in order to dispel these superimposed malefactors that are really things of that person’s distant past. My way of cleansing is to think of the word AUM, and for sure it does more than cleanse. After a somewhat difficult start, all fear, doubt, hesitations, and inner conflicts are resolved.

Although somethings may seem less evil from another standpoint, do not be carried downstream by such rudimentary thinking. If it was evil before this moment it still resolves as evil in a little while. Some good examples would be, and from speaking in terms of my negative forethoughts, and they are, wanting to drink alcohol, eating meat, other than fish, wanting to eat sweets or sugary items, and as well as indulging with people I should not approach.

We must take care not let the evil of our past life re-emerge due to us being less concerned about, or the carelessness of small idiosyncrasies of the present. Stay the course.

In other words, know what’s what, in terms of right and wrong, stay committed to your corrected course. 


Ritsema/Karcher: Ground, the small: Growing. Harvesting: possessing directed going. Harvesting: visualizing Great People. [This hexagram describes your situation in terms of providing an underlying support. It emphasizes that subtly penetrating and nourishing things from below, the action of Ground, is the adequate way to handle it. To be in accord with the time, you are told to enter the situation from below!]
