Today's I Ching for Martin Luther King Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 23 - Po (Splitting Apart): It will not be advantageous to move in any direction whatever.|
|The second line, divided, shows one overthrowing the couch by injuring its frame. The injury will go on to the destruction of all firm correctness, and there will be evil.|
|The third line, divided, shows its subject among the overthrowers, but there will be no error.|
|The situation is shifting, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 18 - Ku (Decay): Great progress and success will come to him who deals properly with the situation. There will be advantage in efforts like that of crossing the great stream. Weigh well though, the events of three days before the turning point, and those to be done three days after it.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Ken (Mountain), which represents stillness and obstruction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'un (Earth), which is transforming into Sun (Wind). As part of this process, docility and receptivity are giving way to penetration and following.|
