  • Daily reading: 19 (TTC 1: The named is the mother of myriad things)

    Chapter 1: http://www.taoism.net/ttc/complete.htm

    The Yi Jing commented:

    The named is the mother of myriad things -> 19

    The formation
    19 - To accompany
    One calls the youngest so they return.



    My interpretation:

    I was expecting that the named would be represented by the hexagram 2, however the hexagram 19 is related to giving birth and this answer is perfectly clear. We are naturally going to ask a few follow-up questions here.

    Who or what calls? (19)

    Who or what calls? -> 9.1.2 > 53

    The formation
    9 - Appearance
    Something is not yet visible.


    1 - One resists.
    2 - One sees that it won't last and leaves with sadness.

    Someone who cannot resist? We need more questions.

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

    Who or what is not visible? (9)

    Who or what is not visible? -> 9

    The formation
    9 - Appearance
    Something is not yet visible.

    There is nothing to be seen.



    Resists what? (9.1)

    Resists what? -> 55.5 > 49

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


    5 - One expects verifications before changing their mind.

    Does not change their mind and resists the verifications.

    In the making
    49 - Arrange
    Renewal is necessary when deficiencies are identified and one has a substitution plan. It will be in their interest to complete the changes. One should forget regrets.


    What won't last? (9.2)

    What won't last? -> 41.2.3 > 22

    The formation
    41 - Remove
    One loses their support and abandons. Accepting the constraints will arouse sympathy.


    2 - The difficulty would be too great if one accepted.
    3 - In a trio, one goes away.

    It seems related to giving birth. But we can ask more questions. It can be understood as too difficult to accept that one leaves so the question about 41.2 needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.

    In the making
    22 - Reservation
    One shall not move too hastily.

    What would be too difficult to accept? (41.2)

    What would be too difficult to accept? -> 1.2.4.5 > 22

    The formation
    1 - Evolution
    Changing to obtain quality work.


    2 - One has a strong potential and learns.
    4 - One can confront the problems.
    5 - One has understood the needs of the times.

    This is not something difficult to accept. So it means that the oracle confirms that it would be too difficult to accept that someone leaves in the trio.

    In the making
    22 - Reservation
    One shall not move too hastily.


    Who or what would leave in the trio? (41.3)

    Who or what is the other that would stay in the trio? (41.3)

    Who or what is the other that would stay in the trio? -> 55.1.5 > 31

    Who or what could help? (44.4)

    Who or what could help? -> 24.1.3.5 > 39

    Conclusion:

    The comment of the hexagram 19 is One calls the youngest so they return. This is related to John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word is described with the hexagram 9, because Someone is not yet visible, but makes things appears. Who is not visible? According to John 1:18 God (or the Tao here) is not visible. The youngest are described as specialists, and they return to control decline. The sentence should be The Word is the mother of the myriad things instead.
