Today's I Ching for Martin Luther King Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 42 - I (Increase): There will be advantage in every movement which shall be undertaken, and it will even be advantageous to cross the great stream.|
|In the sixth line, undivided, we see one to whose increase none will contribute, while many will seek to assail him. He observes no regular rule in the ordering of his heart. There will be evil.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 3 - Chun (Difficulty at the Beginning): There will be great progress and success, and the advantage will come from being correct and firm. Any movement in advance should not be undertaken lightly. There will be advantage in appointing feudal princes or other delegates in your stead.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Sun (Wind), which is transforming into K'an (Water). As part of this process, penetration and following are giving way to danger and the unknown.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Chen (Thunder), which represents movement, initiative, and action.|
