12 Clogging

The Statement of the first hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.

The changing lines

The second line:
Wrapped in flattery, the vile prosper.

Great people are clogged. Continue.
The third line:
Wrapped in shame.
The fifth line:
Clogging ceases. Great people prosper.

It could be lost! It could be lost!

Tie it to the roots of a mulberry tree.

50 Cauldron

The Statement of the second hexagram

Cauldron.
Great fortune.
Continue.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Heaven and earth
separate: clogging.
The noble one acts
with self-restraint
in the face
of punishing hardship,
and avoids glory or riches.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire on top of wood:
cauldron.
The noble one takes the
principal seat
to solidify his commands.
Could you stoke
the cauldron that feeds
all people?
