Today's I Ching for Martin Luther King Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 58 - Tui (Joy): There will be progress and attainment, but it will be advantageous to be firm and correct.|
|The first (bottommost) line, undivided, shows the pleasure of inward harmony. There will be good fortune.|
|The second line, undivided, shows the pleasure arising from inward sincerity. There will be good fortune. Occasion for repentance will disappear.|
|The situation is shifting, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 45 - Ts'ui (Gathering Together): The king will repair to his ancestral temple. It will be advantageous to meet with the great man. Then there will be progress and success, though the advantage must come through firm correctness. The use of great victims will be conducive to good fortune, and in whatever direction movement is made, it will be advantageous.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Tui (Lake), which represents joy, pleasure, and attraction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Tui (Lake), which is transforming into K'un (Earth). As part of this process, joy, pleasure, and attraction are giving way to docility and receptivity.|
