63 Already Across

The Statement of the second hexagram

Already across. Continue.

Small gain: be steadfast.

In the beginning, fortune.

At the end, disorder.
 
 

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

Water on top of fire:
already across. The wise
one prepares for calamity
by forethought.
