8 Joining

The Statement of the first hexagram

Joining brings fortune.
Repeating the divination by yarrow stalks
brings a supreme and lasting omen
without fault.
Those who are not sure
will join the plan.
Those who are late
will meet misfortune.

The changing lines

The first line:
Have confidence. Joining is without fault.
Be as full of trust as an overflowing pot.
At last, another will come. Fortune.
The fourth line:
Joining with those outside.
Pure fortune.
The sixth line:
Joining without a leader:
misfortune.

25 Innocence

The Statement of the second hexagram

Innocence: from the first, all must be

pervasive, gainful, and pure.

Those without such truth suffer calamity

and do not gain no matter where they go.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Water pooled
on the earth: joining.
The early kings founded
the myriad nations,
and kept close ties
with all the leaders.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder moves
under heaven: all the world
is innocent. The ancient
kings paid close attention
to the time
in nourishing
the myriad things.
