29. K'an - The Abysmal (Water) -- -- ----- above K'an The Abysmal, Water -- -- -- -- ----- below K'an The Abysmal, Water -- -- The Judgement The Abysmal repeated. If you are sincere, you have success in your heart, And whatever you do succeeds. The Image Water flows on uninterruptedly and reaches its goal: The image of the Abysmal repeated. Thus the superior man walks in lasting virtue And carries on the business of teaching. The Lines Six at the beginning means: Repetition of the Abysmal. In the abyss one falls into a pit. Misfortune. () Nine in the second place means: The abyss is dangerous. One should strive to attain small things only. Six in the third place means: Forward and backward, abyss on abyss. In danger like this, pause at first and wait, Otherwise you will fall into a pit in the abyss. Do not act in this way. Six in the fourth place means: A jug of wine, a bowl of rice with it; Earthen vessels Simply handed in through the window. There is certainly no blame in this. () Nine in the fifth place means: The abyss is not filled to overflowing, It is filled only to the rim. No blame. Six at the top means: Bound with cords and ropes, Shut in between thorn-hedged prison walls: For three years one does not find the way. Misfortune.
