Today's I Ching for Sammy Davis 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 first (bottommost) line, divided, suggests the idea of a bird flying, and ascending till the issue is evil.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 55 - Feng (Abundance): Progress and development is intimated. When a king has reached the point of abundance, there is no occasion to be anxious through fear of a change. Let him be as the sun at noon.|
|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 Li (Fire). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to brightness and warmth.|
