11 Prospering

The Statement of the first hexagram

Prospering: the vile goes,

the great comes.

Fortune. Continue.

The changing lines

The second line:
Encompass the wasteland by crossing the river

without a boat, but do not advance so far

that you abandon comrades to perish.

Win honor by a middle course.
The third line:
No flat without a slope. No advance without

return. Be steadfast in difficulty.

No fault, no grief. The other is sincere:

in feasting there will be happiness.

24 Returning

The Statement of the second 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 Image of the first hexagram

Heaven and earth combine:
prospering.
The empress uses wealth
to fulfill the way
of heaven and earth.
She supports the order
of heaven and earth for
people on all sides.
 
 

The Image of the second 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.
