Good Morning H-57

Hexagram 57

Bookmark and Share

By: James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram 57 is called Xun, or Ground. Additional variations include The Gentle, the Penetration wind and Calculations. Its lower and upper trigrams are identical, being Xun: ground or wind.       

B. The Judgment

   1. The Gentle. Success through what is small.
       It furthers one to have somewhere to go.
   2. It furthers one to see the great man.

C. The Image

  1. Winds following one upon the other:
      The image of The Firm Penetrates the middle;
      What is willed is fulfilled.
  2. Thus the superior man

      Spreads his commands abroad
      And carries out the will of Heaven. 

II. My interpretation 

A. "The Gentle"

With this hexagram we see a person who is somewhat in doubt as to when he should capture the opportunity to move forward. This is due to the disposition that he or she has, without cause, placed upon themselves.

A cleansing is needed in order to dispel these superimposed malefactors that are really things of that person's distant past. My way of cleansing is to think of the word AUM, and for sure it does more than cleanse. After a somewhat difficult start, all fear, doubt, hesitations, and inner conflicts are resolved.
"let a man meditate on Om". 

Although somethings may seem less evil from another standpoint, do not be carried downstream by such rudimentary thinking. If it was evil before this moment it still resolves as evil in a little while. Some good examples would be, and from speaking in terms of my negative forethoughts, and they are, wanting to drink alcohol, eating meat, other than fish, wanting to eat sweets or sugary items, and as well as indulging with people I should not approach.

We must take care not let the evil of our past life re-emerge due to us being less concerned about, or the carelessness of small idiosyncrasies of the present. Stay the course.

In other words, know what’s what, in terms of right and wrong, stay committed to your corrected course. 

Ritsema/Karcher: Ground, the small: Growing. Harvesting: possessing directed going. Harvesting: visualizing Great People. [This hexagram describes your situation in terms of providing an underlying support. It emphasizes that subtly penetrating and nourishing things from below, the action of Ground, is the adequate way to handle it. To be in accord with the time, you are told to enter the situation from below!]
