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 fourth line:
An ample beam. Fortunate,

unless there has been stinting.
The sixth line:
Fording, wading, head submerged.

Misfortune, but without fault.

9 Smallness Tames

The Statement of the second hexagram

Smallness tames. Persevere.
Dense clouds, no rain
at my western border.
 
 

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

Wind moving high
in heaven: smallness tames.
The noble one acts
with restraint, culture,
and morals.
