I Ching # 59 DISPERSION

Above Sun –  the Gentle, Wind

Below K’an – the abysmal, Water

Through hardness and selfishness the heart grows rigid, and this rigidity leads to separation from all others. Egotism and cupidity (greed) isolate men. Therefore the hearts of men must be seized by a devout emotion. They must be shaken by a religious awe in face of eternity – stirred with an intuition of the One Creator of all living beings, and united through the strong feeling of fellowship experienced in the ritual of divine worship.
