    14. Ta Yu / Possession in Great Measure


    --- --- above Li The Clinging, Flame



    ------- below Ch'ien The Creative, Heaven


The Judgement

    Possession in Great Measure.

    Supreme success.

The Image

    Fire in heaven above:

    The image of Possession in Great Measure.

    Thus the superior man curbs evil and furthers good,

    And thereby obeys the benevolent will of heaven.

The Lines

    Nine at the beginning means:

    No relationship with what is harmful;

    There is no blame in this.

    If one remains conscious of difficulty,

    One remains without blame.

    Nine in the second place means:

    A big wagon for loading.

    One may undertake something.

    No blame.

    Nine in the third place means:

    A prince offers it to the Son of Heaven.

    A petty man cannot do this.

    Nine in the fourth place means:

    He makes a difference

    Between himself and his neighbor.

    No blame.

    () Six in the fifth place means:

    He whose truth is accessible, yet dignified,

    Has good fortune.

    Nine in the fifth place means:

    He is blessed by heaven.

    Good fortune.

    Nothing that does not further.
