  • Daily reading: 42.1.6 (China pledges $2bn for developing world)

    Article: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-34372188

    The Yi Jing commented:

    China pledges $2bn for developing world -> 42.1.6 > 8

    The formation
    42 - To progress
    Looking for what can be improved.


    1 - Being encouraged to progress.
    6 - When someone asks others to accept without having prepared anything, they become a target.

    In the making
    8 - Sharing
    Sharing a common vision. Hesitations can lead to regrets.

    My interpretation:

    We need follow-up questions to understand this reading.

    What can be improved? (42)

    What can be improved? -> 55.3.4.5 > 3

    The formation
    55 - To manage
    One prepares to meet requests. After a study, decisions will be applied and checked. Unreasonable requests will be ignored.


    3 - The weakest abstain because they don't want to bear any more.
    4 - One is called to continue the checks.
    5 - One expects verifications before changing their mind.

    In the making
    3 - Remedy
    Time will need to be spent. Seek assistance and clarify the situation by identifying the problems.


    Who/what is encouraged to progress? (42.1)

    Who/what is encouraged to progress? -> 29

    The formation
    29 - Depth
    When problems are too difficult, one tries to work around them.



    Accept what? (42.6)

    Accept what? -> 9

    The formation
    9 - Appearance
    Something is not yet visible.



    Preparing what? (42.6)

    Preparing what? -> 17

    The formation
    17 - To guide
    When one rejoices others, they join with them.



    Target for what? (42.6)

    Target for what? -> 38

    The formation
    38 - Misunderstanding
    One must revisit a misunderstanding if they want to dispel it. If needed, one can seek advice. One may abandon the small differences.



    Remedy to what? (3)

    Remedy to what? -> 12.4.6 > 8

    The formation
    12 - Disorganization
    Problems prevent the progress. The best solution would be to leave.


    4 - Without taking initiatives, one is asked to commit. The friends are helped.
    6 - The reorganization has succeeded. Rejoicing.

    In the making
    8 - Sharing
    Sharing a common vision. Hesitations can lead to regrets.


    As 55.3.4.5 shows, it is about improving the condition of the least developed countries. The hexagram 29 represents difficulties, so it sounds strange that difficulties would be encouraged to progress. We can still interpret this line as 'being encouraged to work around the difficulties' but we can also ask additional questions. 42.6 is about accepting debt cancellation (from hexagram 9, cleaning the debts), what needs to be prepared is that the least developed nations follow a Chinese education plan or else misunderstandings would arise.

    So, let's clear this point about 42.1/29:

    What problems are too difficult?

    What problems are too difficult? -> 12.5.6 > 16

    The formation
    12 - Disorganization
    Problems prevent the progress. The best solution would be to leave.


    5 - One has put order, but is still careful.
    6 - The reorganization has succeeded. Rejoicing.

    In the making
    16 - Youth
    Youth can be mobilized. It is a period of indecision which will be emerged through involvement.


    How does one work around them?

    How does one work around them? -> 37.1 > 53

    The formation
    37 - Relatives
    One nurtures their relationships by maintaining contact.


    1 - One warns a close one against going further.

    In the making
    53 - To associate
    One offers their fellows to overcome constraints by associating.


    Who works around them?

    Who works around them? -> 28.2 > 31

    The formation
    28 - Abandonment
    One goes on their own if necessary. Stick to the essential.


    2 - When one runs into difficulties, they welcome the weakest to preserve their future.

    In the making
    31 - Impulse
    When one helps others, they come.

    My understanding is that China is working around the problems caused by the refugees crisis by helping the poorest countries to develop themselves. The question Remedy to what? gave 12.4.6, so it's a plan to prevent more refugees crisis in the future.
