3 Sprouting

The Statement of the first hexagram

Sprouting begins everywhere,
abundant and pure.
No need to go far:
gain by naming allies.

The changing lines

The first line:
A boulder and a willow.
It is gainful to dwell staunchly here.
Gain by naming allies.
The second line:
How like the difficulty of sprouting!
Rushing like a team of horses: it is not a raider
who woos, yet the chaste girl refuses.
She waits ten years for betrothal.
The third line:
Although there are deer, there is no forester.
Thinking to enter the forest's center,
the noble one halts. To go forward: sorrow.
The fourth line:
Riding a team of horses
to seek marriage. Fortunate.
Nothing but gain.

28 Great Excess

The Statement of the second hexagram

The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Clouds and thunder: sprouting. The noble one
considers the principles.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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