Today's I Ching for Martin Luther King Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 41 - Sun (Decrease): If there is sincerity in sacrifice, there will be great good fortune, freedom from error, firmness and correctness that can be maintained, and advantage in every movement that shall be made. In what shall this sincerity in the exercise of sacrifice be employed?|
|The fourth line, divided, shows its subject diminishing the ailment under which he labours by making the subject of the first line hasten to his help, and make him glad. There will be no error.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 38 - K'uei (Opposition): Notwithstanding the presence of opposition, in small matters there will still be success.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Ken (Mountain), which is transforming into Li (Fire). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to brightness and warmth.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Tui (Lake), which represents joy, pleasure, and attraction.|
