Today's I Ching for Sammy Davis Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 52 - Ken (Keeping Still): When one is resting, and he loses all consciousness of self; when he walks in his courtyard, and does not see any of the persons in it, there will be no error.|
|The first (bottommost) line, divided, shows its subject keeping his toes at rest. There will be no error, but it will be advantageous for him to be persistently firm and correct.|
|The third line, undivided, shows its subject keeping his loins at rest, and separating the ribs from the body below. The situation is perilous, and the heart glows with suppressed excitement.|
|The situation is shifting, but neither Yin (the passive feminine force) nor Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 27 - I (Providing Nourishment): With firm correctness there will be good fortune. We must look at what we are seeking to nourish, and by the exercise of our thoughts seek for the proper aliment.|
|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 Ken (Mountain), which is transforming into Chen (Thunder). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to movement, initiative, and action.|
