  • Daily reading: 3.1 (TTC 2: When the world knows beauty as beauty, ugliness arises)

    Chapter 2: http://www.taoism.net/ttc/complete.htm

    The Yi Jing commented:

    When the world knows beauty as beauty, ugliness arises -> 3.1 > 8

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


    1 - When others ask for help, if one accepts despite the constraints they will set an example.

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

    My interpretation:

    The hexagram 3.1 is related to slavery, when the world knows beauty then beauty is captured, hence the ugliness. We can ask follow-up questions to confirm or invalidate this interpretation.

    What are the problems? (3)

    What are the problems? -> 30.6 > 55

    The formation
    30 - Lucidity
    Patience will bring success.


    6 - If one becomes less flexible, others will evolve.

    Imposing constraints on others.

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


    Who is asking for help? (3.1)

    Who is asking for help? -> 21.5 > 25

    The formation
    21 - To decide
    One would like to meet but must accept arbitration.


    5 - One discusses to prepare an acceptable agreement.

    Reaching an agreement about beauty.

    In the making
    25 - Recklessness
    When one overlooks the future, they won't see what is coming.


    Help for what? (3.1)

    Help for what? -> 62.3.5.6 > 12

    The formation
    62 - Exit
    One checks before going out.


    3 - One asks the most able to assess the repairs.
    5 - One fixes an issue by seeking far away help.
    6 - When one goes too far, others withdraw, and one breaks something.

    Repairing something that is considered ugly.

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


    What are the constraints? (3.1)

    What are the constraints? -> 30

    The formation
    30 - Lucidity
    Patience will bring success.

    Knowledge



    What example is set? (3.1)

    What example is set? -> 60.5 > 19

    The formation
    60 - Limit
    One does not go further.


    5 - One discovers without help a new way to make the necessary, so they are recognized.

    Being recognized as beautiful.

    In the making
    19 - To accompany
    One calls the youngest so they return.


    What is the common vision? (8)

    What is the common vision? -> 18.3.6 > 7

    The formation
    18 - Disorder
    One needs to abandon their affairs and make themself available to patiently soften their most embarrassing flaws, in order to be able to inspire trust and be engaged by those who can help them.


    3 - One sees the negligence of a relative, so they take advantage of that to help them.
    6 - One leaves others to go and see.

    Helping others to improve.

    In the making
    7 - The will
    To solve their problems, one will need discipline and continuity.


    Conclusion:

    The oracle commented this line with 3.1: When others ask for help, if one accepts despite the constraints they will set an example. Those who ask for help are the ugly, the constraints are to recognize beauty, the example set will help the ugly to improve. We can also see that by defining something as beautiful, the rest is considered ugly.
