36 Smothered Light

The Statement of the first hexagram

Smothered light.

Gain is difficult: persist.

The changing lines

The second line:
Smothered light: injury in the left thigh.

Exert horselike strength to rescue.

Fortunate.
The fourth line:
Enter at the left front, capturing

the heart of smothered light.

Going in and out of gates and halls.
The sixth line:
Not a bright night.

First rise into the sky,

then plunge into the earth.
