Smothered light.

Gain is difficult: persist.

22 Adornment

The Statement of the second hexagram

Adornment. Continue.
Slight 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

Fire at the foot
of a mountain: adornment.
The noble one thereby
governs with clarity, and
does not dare
to decide lawsuits lightly.
