  • Daily reading: 27.1 (TTC 2:High and low support each other)

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

    The Yi Jing commented:

    High and low support each other -> 27.1 > 23

    The formation
    27 - Supply
    One supplies as needed.


    1 - One is facing a difficult problem, but declines the support of their friends. One must let them act before the situation gets worse.

    In the making
    23 - Erosion

    Decline that one can control by using their reservations.

    My interpretation:

    This reading is difficult to understand without follow-up questions.

    What kind of supplies? (27)
    What kind of supplies? -> 52.2.6 > 46

    The formation
    52 - Stop
    One recognizes that it is time to stop because they need to be fed.


    2 - The other wants more, one cannot retain them.
    6 - One studies their neighborhood's demands before addressing them.

    In the making
    46 - Formation
    One is guided until they reach knowledge.


    What is the difficult problem? (27.1)

    What is the difficult problem? -> 23

    The formation
    23 - Erosion
    Decline that one can control by using their reservations.



    Who or what are the friends? (27.1)

    Who or what are the friends? -> 30.4 > 22

    The formation
    30 - Lucidity
    Patience will bring success.


    4 - One rushes, but does not have the strength to last.

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


    What is the decline? (23)

    What is the decline? -> 34.4 > 11

    The formation
    34 - Concentration
    One does not let their thoughts derail.


    4 - When one hesitates they consult their friends.

    In the making
    11 - Duty
    Organize, prepare one's work.


    Conclusion:

    The oracle said that this list is getting long and we should not spend too much time on it. So we're going to study Therefore the sages: next time.
