30. Li / The Clinging, Fire
above Li The Clinging, Flame
below Li The Clinging, Flame
The Clinging. Perseverance furthers.
It brings success.
Care of the cow brings good fortune.
That which is bright rises twice:
The image of Fire.
Thus the great man, by perpetuating this brightness,
Illumines the four quarters of the world.
Change at the beginning means:
The footprints run crisscross.
If one is seriously intent, no blame.
Change in the second place means:
Yellow light. Supreme good fortune.
Change in the third place means:
In the light of the setting sun,
Men either beat the pot and sing
Or loudly bewail the approach of old age.
Change in the fourth place means:
Its coming is sudden;
It flames up, dies down, is thrown away.
Change in the fifth place means:
Tears in floods, sighing and lamenting.
Change at the top means:
The king uses him to march forth and chastise.
Then it is best to kill the leaders
And take captive the followers. No blame.
