36 Smothered Light

The Statement of the first hexagram

Smothered light.

Gain is difficult: persist.

The changing lines

The first line:
Smothered light in flight, hanging wings.

The wise one travels and has no food

for three days, but finds the destination:

the host responds.
The third line:
Smothered light on a southern expedition.

Their great chief is captured.

One cannot be hasty to establish rule.
The sixth line:
Not a bright night.

First rise into the sky,

then plunge into the earth.

23 Splitting

The Statement of the second hexagram

Splitting; no gain

in having a place to go.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Brilliance
in the earth's core:
smothered light.
The noble one
governs the multitude
by obscurity-
but with enlightenment.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

The mountain resting on
the earth: splitting.
When the high
are generous
to those below,
all dwell in peace.
