62 Small Crossing

The Statement of the first hexagram

Small crossing. Continue for gainful purity.

Small matters can be done,

but not large matters.

Flying birds leave their sound:

it is unsuitable to go high-

the suitable is below.

Great fortune.

The changing lines

The second line:
Crossing to one's ancestors,

meeting one's dead mother.

Not reaching as far as one's king:

meeting his minister. No fault.
The fifth line:
Dense clouds, no rain.

At my western outskirts, the duke shoots,

takes another in the cave.

28 Great Excess

The Statement of the second hexagram

The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder above the
mountain: small crossing.
The noble one acts with
more than enough
reverence, destroys
excessive grief, and uses
more than enough
economy.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

The lake overwhelms
the trees: great excess.
The noble one stands alone
without fear,
and can withdraw
from the world
without sorrow.
