Great questions of our time

Is there really, like, a Supreme Being?

38. K’uei — Opposition

The Judgement

Opposition. In small matters, good fortune.

The Image

Above, fire; below, the lake:
The image of Opposition.
Thus amid all fellowship
The superior man retains his individuality.

Nine at the Beginning

Remorse disappears.
If you lose your horse, do not run after it;
It will come back of its own accord.
When you see evil people,
Guard yourself against mistakes.
Six in the Third Place
One sees the wagon dragged back,
The oxen halted,
A man's hair and nose cut off.
Not a good beginning, but a good end.

A runaway horse, a stalled ox, an unwanted haircut and bereft of a nose?

Well, yeerrs, I can imagine that some men might rise above it all and consider it a sign of individuality.

Not many men, mind you.
