9 – THE HSIAO CHU HEXAGRAM

Air of Lingam

Hsiao Chu


HSIAO CHU: Shows small restraint. Hence quick success.
But clouds indeed, we ask rain's happiness.


Strayed - Come thou back and follow thy own plan!
By true attraction mete thy starry span!
Anger in wedlock or a car en panne!
Bloodshed and woe sincerity bids go.
Sincerity: Here's help from all the clan.
Who wins too much may lose! Repose, O man!

10 – THE LI HEXAGRAM

Lingam of Water

Li


LI: Is the treading of the path that's right!
Step on the tiger's tail; he will not bite.


Follow the path of thine accustomed right;
Level and easy walks the anchorite.
Learn vanity, the brave's bluff, to flee!
Tread on the tiger's tail; he will not bite.
Firm, resolute - yet perilous thy plight;
Examine well, the augury of the flight.

11 – THE THAI HEXAGRAM

Yoni of Lingam

Thai


THAI: The due order of things; we see, in sum,
good fortune, small things gone, and great things come.


Pull up one stalk; and others follow it.
Seek patience, self reliance, love and wit.
Though all things change, rejoice; for that is writ.
Call friends to help thee, they may bring thee through.
Remember what Ti Yi thought right and true.
The city's fallen; there's little thou canst do.

12 – THE PHI HEXAGRAM

Lingam of Yoni

Phi


PHI: All's disorder in the organum.
We see the great gone, and the little come.


Again one stalk pulled brings the others too.
Patience, obedience, fitness, build anew.
Shame hide thy purpose from thy own right view!
Act rightly; comrades come to love thee and wonder.
Restoring all things, murmur, We may blunder.
The darkness passes; light breaks forth from under.

13 – THE THUNG ZAN HEXAGRAM

Lingam of Sun

Thung Zan


THUNG ZAN: Men's union! Everywhere the clan!
Cross then the stream, thou firm, superior man!


Here first the master rises from his gate.
Well should he flee the cares of family!
Concealed, but watchful, the right born await!
Be ready to attack, but tempt not fate.
Through tears to laughter, victory crowns thy state.
Even in the suburbs men proclaim thee great.

14 – THE TA YU HEXAGRAM

Sun of Lingam

Ta Yu


TA YU: Great havings; wealth's a sorceress,
within whose cauldron bubbles up succes.


Steer clear of wrong, envision clear thy road.
Lo! The great wagon with its golden load!
Great prince to heaven's son his duty hath showed.
But guard resources as his jewel a toad.
Sincerity is matched by majesty.
In all ways heaven's blessing hath overflowed!

15 – THE CHIEN HEXAGRAM

Yoni of Earth

Chien


CHIEN: Humility; this yeast's to baking.
A man may win in every undertaking.


Increase humilities; so clears the way!
Once recognized, who is there to gainsay?
Acknowledged merit will success inherit.
Grow thou more truly humble every day.
Thus all thy neighbors in thy cause array.
Use force - but only on the proper prey!

16 – THE YU HEXAGRAM

Fire of Yoni

Yu


YU: Satisfaction spreads through all thy coasts.
Appoint thy princes, and send forth thy hosts!


Boast not of pleasure! There lurks overthrow.
Be firm, with foresight all thy soul aglow.
Presume not; understand - what came may go!
Shed happiness, call friends to share success!
Make not a habit; joy's as dull as woe.
Oh! Think more deeply; change is wisdom's throw!
