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

Lake below mountain:
decrease. The noble one
halts his anger
and curbs his desires.
 
 

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.
