28 Great Excess

The Statement of the first hexagram

The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.

The changing lines

The first line:
A cushion of white grass.

No fault.
The second line:
A withered trunk bursts with fresh vetch.

An old man takes a wife. Nothing but gain.
The fourth line:
An ample beam. Fortunate,

unless there has been stinting.

63 Already Across

The Statement of the second hexagram

Already across. Continue.

Small gain: be steadfast.

In the beginning, fortune.

At the end, disorder.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The lake overwhelms
the trees: great excess.
The noble one stands alone
without fear,
and can withdraw
from the world
without sorrow.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Water on top of fire:
already across. The wise
one prepares for calamity
by forethought.
