Today's I Ching for Martin Luther King Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 62 - Hsiao Kuo (Preponderance of the Small): In these circumstances which it implies, there will be progress and attainment, but it will be advantageous to be firm and correct. Action may be taken in small affairs, but not in great affairs. Like the notes that come down from a bird on the wing, to descend is better than to ascend. There will, in this way, be great good fortune.|
|The second line, divided, shows its subject passing by his grandfather, and meeting with his grandmother - not attempting anything against his ruler, but meeting him as his minister. 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 32 - Heng (Duration): Successful progress and no error is indicated, but the advantage will come from being firm and correct. Any movement in any direction whatever will be advantageous.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Chen (Thunder), which represents movement, initiative, and action.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Ken (Mountain), which is transforming into Sun (Wind). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to penetration and following.|
