Today's I Ching for Martin Luther King Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 30 - Li (Fire): It will be advantageous to be firm and correct, and in doing so there will be a free course and success. Let him also nourish a docility like that of the cow, and there will be good fortune.|
|The fourth line, undivided, shows the manner of its subject's coming. How abrupt it is, as with fire, with death, to be rejected by all!|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 22 - Pi (Grace): He should find a free course, but there will be little advantage if he advance and take the lead.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Li (Fire), which is transforming into Ken (Mountain). As part of this process, brightness and warmth are giving way to stillness and obstruction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Li (Fire), which represents brightness and warmth.|
