Opposition. In small matters, good fortune.


Above, fire; below, the lake:

The image of Opposition.

Thus amid all fellowship

The superior man retains his individuality.

6. Isolated through opposition, One sees one's companion as a pig covered with dirt, As a wagon full of devils. First one draws a bow against him, Then one lays the bow aside. He is not a robber; he will woo at the right time. As one goes, rain falls; then good fortune comes.

5. Remorse disappears. The companion bites his way through the wrappings. If one goes to him, How could it be a mistake?

4. Isolated through opposition, One meets a like-minded man With whom one can associate in good faith. Despite the danger, no blame.

3. 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.

2. One meets his lord in a narrow street. No blame.

1. 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.
