6. Sung / Conflict

------- 
------- above Ch'ien The Creative, Heaven
------- 
--- --- 
------- below K'an The Abysmal, Water
--- --- 

The Judgement

Conflict. You are sincere
And are being obstructed.
A cautious halt halfway brings good fortune.
Going through to the end brings misfortune.
It furthers one to see the great man.
It does not further one to cross the great water.

The Image

Heaven and water go their opposite ways:
The image of Conflict.
Thus in all his transactions the superior man
Carefully considers the beginning.

The Lines

Nine in the fourth place means:
One cannot engage in conflict.
One turns back and submits to fate,
Changes one's attitude,
And finds peace in perseverance.
Good fortune.

59. Huan / Dispersion [Dissolution]

------- above Sun The Gentle, Wind

The Judgement

Dispersion. Success.
The king approaches his temple.
It furthers one to cross the great water.
Perseverance furthers.

The Image

The wind drives over the water:
The image of Dispersion.
Thus the kings of old sacrificed to the Lord
And built temples.
