Today's I Ching for Martin Luther King Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 39 - Chien (Obstruction): Advantage will be found in the southwest, and the contrary in the northeast. It will be advantageous to meet with the great man. With firmness and correctness, there will be good fortune.|
|From the first line, divided, we learn that advance on the part of its subject will lead to greater difficulties, while remaining stationary will afford ground for praise.|
|The fourth line, divided, shows its subject advancing, but only to greater difficulties. He remains stationary, and unites with the subject of the line above.|
|The situation is shifting, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 49 - Ko (Revolution): What takes place is believed in only after it has been accomplished. There will be great progress and success. Advantage will come from being firm and correct. In that case, occasion for repentance will disappear.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram K'an (Water), which is transforming into Tui (Lake). As part of this process, danger and the unknown are giving way to joy, pleasure, and attraction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Ken (Mountain), which is transforming into Li (Fire). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to brightness and warmth.|
