63. Chi Chi / After Completion
above K'an The Abysmal, Water
below Li The Clinging, Flame
After Completion. Success in small matters.
At the beginning good fortune,
At the end disorder.
Water over fire: the image of the condition
In After Completion.
Thus the superior man
Takes thoughts of misfortune
And arms himself against it in advance.
Nine at the beginning means:
He brakes his wheels.
He gets his tail in the water.
Nine in the third place means:
The Illustrious Ancestor
Disciplines the Devil's Country.
After three years he conquers it.
Inferior people must not be employed.
Six at the top means:
He gets his head in the water. Danger.
20. Kuan / Contemplation (View)
above Sun The Gentle, Wind
below K'un The Receptive, Earth
Contemplation. The ablution has been made,
But not yet the offering.
Full of trust they look up to him.
The wind blows over the earth:
The image of Contemplation.
Thus the kings of old visited the regions of the world,
Contemplated the people,
And gave them instruction.
