Guà Jìng - Yáo Ying
Hexagram Mirrors - Line Reflections
The mirror grouping of 51.3-52.4-55.3-56.4
About how to stay upright despite anything.
51.3 The shock: reviving, reviving. The shock moves, without mistake.
Life needs shocks. Let them move you, but stay on your road.
52.4 Stabilize oneself. Without fault.
Stability should be an inner condition.
55.3 In Feng raincurtains. At midday one sees froth. Breaking one's right arm, no fault.
Do what you have to do, even if everything goes counter.
56.4 The wanderer is in a resting place and obtains money and an axe. My heart is not pleased.
Stability is great but no guarantee for happiness. Life needs challenges.
The theme of this mirror:
Mirror groupings 51.3 and 57.3 are contrasts
(all yang lines of Mirror 51.3 are yin lines in Mirror 57.3 and vv)
Mirror 51.3 is about how to stay upright despite anything (outer challenges).
Mirror 57.3 is about the decision to act or to refrain (inner facts)
