24 Returning

The Statement of the first hexagram

Returning. Continue.
In coming and going,
there is neither sickness nor distress.
Companions come without fault.
Returning is its Tao.
In seven days, returning comes.
Gain by having a place to go.

The changing lines

The third line:
Urgent returning, harsh danger.
No fault.
The fourth line:
Returning alone
in the middle of the road.
The fifth line:
Honest returning:
no fault.

49 Reform

The Statement of the second hexagram

Reform: on one's own day,

confidence is won-

making, pervasive, gainful, and pure.

Regrets vanish.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder in the center of
the earth: returning.
The ancient kings
closed the borders
during the solstices.
Traveling merchants
did not journey. Sovereigns
did not tour the provinces.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire in the middle of the
lake: reform. The noble one
orders the calendar
by the seasons.
