Good Morning H-52

Hexagram 52

Bookmark and Share

By: James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram 52 is Gen, or Bound. Further interpretations are Keeping Still, Mountain and Stilling. Its lower and upper trigrams are the same, gen: bound or  mountain.       

B. The Judgment

   1. Keeping Still. Keeping his back still
       So that he no longer feels his body.
   2. He goes into his courtyard
       And does not see his people.
       No blame.

C. The Image

  1. Mountains standing close together:
      The image of Keeping Still.
  2. Thus the superior man
      Does not permit his thoughts
      To go beyond his situation. 

II. My interpretation 

A. "Keeping Still"

After reviewing this hexagram, the only precept I can get from it is meditation. It is a time for some quietude and Zen, so to speak. It is true that in order for the face to reflect a calm demeanor, that projection must come from within, just as the lotus flower that floats on a calm pond, serene and sincere it is. 

Now is a good time to make these adjustments to your inward appearance, in order to reflect peaceful undertones. You do this in order to reflect a peaceful outward appearance, sort of, "as above, so below". As long as you maintain your inner core, you will be as steady as a rock.

The thing with meditation is to always start with stilling the toes, and then work your way up to stilling your somewhat racing thoughts. Now remember that harboring bad things about other people internally, will eventually ooze out at some point in time, so don't ever go there, literally or telepathically. At all, the best thing to achieve is No Mind, or Zen after being fully absorbed into your meditational practice.
