I Ching Hexagram nr. 2

Kūn - Field, the receptive, acquiescence, the flow

Øverst

Trigram:
K'un The Receptive, Earth

Nederst

Trigram:
K'un The Receptive, Earth


Beskrivelse af billedet
Jordens tilstand er modtagelig hengivenhed. Således den overlegne mand, der har bredde af karakter, Bærer den ydre verden. Ligesom der er kun én himlen, så er der også kun én jord. I hexagram himlens fordoblingen af trigram indebærer varighed i tid, men i hexagram jordens fordoblingen konnoterer soliditet og udvidelse i rummet i kraft af hvilken jorden er i stand til at bære og bevare alt, hvad der lever og bevæger sig over det . Jorden i sin hengivenhed bærer alle ting, gode og onde,, uden undtagelse. På samme måde den overlegne mand giver til hans karakter bredde, renhed og fastholde magt, så han er i stand til både at støtte og bære med mennesker og ting.


The Image
The earth's condition is receptive devotion. Thus the superior man who has breadth of character, Carries the outer world. Just as there is only one heaven, so too there is only one earth. In the hexagram of heaven the doubling of the trigram implies duration in time, but in the hexagram of earth the doubling connotes the solidity and extension in space by virtue of which the earth is able to carry and preserve all things that live and move upon it. The earth in its devotion carries all things, good and evil,, without exception. In the same way the superior man gives to his character breadth, purity, and sustaining power, so that he is able both to support and to bear with people and things.

Kort forklaring på Hexagram nr. 2


K'un, det Modtagende, det Skabende, mørket der illumineres af lyset, jorden der modtager himlens velsignelser, karret hvortil næring flyder. Dette er tiden til at følge snarere end lede, være behjælpelig snarere end igangsættende, lytte snarere end tale. Genopfrisk nu din helligen dig beskedenhed, modtagelighed og blidhed, og giv afkald på bekymringer om andres adfærd eller dine verdslige ambitioners fremskridt. Visdommen i at opdyrke modtageligheden kan ikke understreges nok; modtagelighed er den frugtbare jord, uden hvilken det Skabende ikke kan rodfæste sig i vores liv. Dette grundlæggende hexagram tjener som en stærk opmuntring til at koncentrere dig om at nære, støtte, acceptere, arbejde på at følge den Vises vejledning uden at begære anerkendelse. I en periode som denne kan du have stor gavn af at tilbringe en tid i ensomhed; det er i stilheden, vi får lejlighed til at fokusere på hjertets og sindets renselse. Det er et godt tidspunkt at spørge sig selv: "Stræber jeg virkelig efter det gode for dets egen skyld, eller har jeg en skjult dagsorden?" I så fald bør du løsrive dig fra den og vende tilbage til selvstændighedens og balancens vej. Gennem ydmyghed og åbenhed bliver vi modtagelige for den Højere Magts hjælp.

Den modtagelige bringer overmåde succes. Hvis det store menneske forpligter sig og forsøger at lede, vil han komme på afveje. Hvis han følger, vil han finde den rette vejledning. Det er gavnligt af finde venner i sydvest frem for i nordøst. Vedholdende korrekthed bringer god lykke. Tilbøjelighed til at reagere på omgivelsernes mange påvirkninger på en naturlig og accepterende måde. Du har ikke indflydelse på omgivelserne og bør ikke sætte initiativer i gang. Du bør ikke lede eller rådgive. Og heller ikke handle på egen hånd. Overlad initiativet til andre. Brug i stedet dit netværk, som kan bringe dig til en gunstig position. Du har ingen gennemslagskraft, men kan med den rette indstilling kan du opnå indsigt.



Generelt:

Vær modtagelig for gode råd eller indflydelse fra dem, der er værdige til respekt. Det er et tegn på styrke, ikke svaghed.



Kærlighed:

Lyt til råd fra familie og venner.



Forretning:

Lyt til råd fra eksperter inden for dit område og gøre status over din virksomhed.



Personligt:

Tag imod råd fra en rådgiver, du stoler på.


Kommentar:

From the book I Ching - translated to German by Richard Wilhelm (1873-1930), then to english by Cary Fink Baynes (1883-1977) and Irene Eber. Copyright renewed by Princeton University Press 1977.

This hexagram is made up of broken lines only. The broken lines represents the dark, yielding, receptive primal power of yin. The attribute of the hexagram is devotion; its image is the earth. It is the perfect complement of THE CREATIVE--the complement, not the opposite, for the Receptive does not combat the Creative but completes it . It represents nature in contrast to spirit, earth in contrast to heaven, space as against time, the female-maternal as against the male-paternal. However, as applied to human affairs, the principle of this complementary relationship is found not only in the relation between man and woman, but also in that between prince and minister and between father and son. Indeed, even in the individual this duality appears in the coexistence of the spiritual world and the world of the senses. But strictly speaking there is no real dualism here, because there is a clearly defined hierarchic relationship between the two principles. In itself of course the Receptive is just as important as the Creative, but the attribute of devotion defines the place occupied by this primal power in relation to the Creative. For the Receptive must be activated and led by the Creative; then it is productive of good. Only when it abandons this position and tries to stand as an equal side by side with the Creative, does it become evil. The result then is opposition to and struggle against the Creative, which is productive of evil to both.

Dette hexagram består af kun punkterede linier. De stiplede linier repræsenterer den mørke, hvilket giver, modtagelig primal kraft yin. Den egenskab ved hexagram er hengivenhed; dens image er jorden. Det er det perfekte supplement af de kreative - det supplement, ikke det modsatte, for det receptive ikke bekæmper Creative men fuldfører den. Det repræsenterer naturen i modsætning til ånd, jord i modsætning til himlen, rum som mod tiden, den kvindelige-maternel mod den mandlige-fædrene. Men som anvendes på menneskelige anliggender, er princippet i denne komplementært forhold findes ikke kun i forholdet mellem mand og kvinde, men også i, at mellem prins og minister og mellem far og søn. Selv i de enkelte denne dobbelthed vises i sameksistensen mellem den åndelige verden og verden af sanserne. Men strengt taget er der ingen reel dualisme her, fordi der er en klart defineret hierarkisk forhold mellem de to principper. I sig selv er naturligvis den receptive er lige så vigtig som de kreative, men den egenskab ved hengivenhed definerer den plads, som denne primal magt i forhold til Creative. For det receptive skal aktiveres og ledet af Creative; så er det produktiv god. Kun når det forlader denne position og forsøger at stå som en lige side om side med Creative, bliver det onde. Resultatet er da modstand mod og kamp mod Creative, som er produktiv onde til begge.

Six at the beginning means: When there is hoarfrost underfoot, Solid ice is not far off.

Just as the light-giving power represents life, so the dark power, the shadowy, represents death. When the first hoarfrost comes in the autumn, the power of darkness and cold is just at its beginning. After these first warnings, signs of death will gradually multiply, until, in obedience to immutable laws, stark winter with its ice is here. In life it is the same. After certain scarcely noticeable signs of decay have appeared, they go on increasing until final dissolution comes. But in life precautions can be taken by heeding the first signs of decay and checking them in time.


Begyndelsen til enden kan iagttages. Forbered dig på drastisk nedgang.


Linje 2


Six in the second place means: Straight, square, great. Without purpose, Yet nothing remains unfurthered.

The symbol of heaven is the circle, and that of earth is the square. Thus squareness is a primary quality of the earth. On the other hand, movement in a straight line, as well as magnitude, is a primary quality of the Creative. But all square things have their origin in a straight line and into turn form solid bodies. In mathematics, when we discriminate between lines, planes and solids, we find that rectangular planes result from straight lines, and cubic magnitudes from rectangular planes. The Receptive accommodates itself to the qualities of the Creative and makes them its own. Thus a square develops out of a straight line and a cube out of a square. This is compliance with the laws of the Creative; nothing is taken away, nothing added. Therefore the Receptive has no need of a special purpose of its own, nor of any effort' yet everything turns out as it should. Nature creates all beings without erring: this is its foursquareness. It tolerates all creatures equally: this is its greatness. Therefore it attains what is right for all without artifice or special intentions. Man achieves the height of wisdom when all that he does is as self-evident as what nature does.


Undgå kunstfærdighed. Udnyt den naturlige modtagelighed. Vær åben og gør de naturlige og indlysende ting. Du kan derved opnå ligevægt og held.


Linje 3


Six in the third place means: Hidden lines. One is able to remain persevering. If by chance you are in the service of a king, Seek not works, but bring to completion.

If a man is free of vanity he is able to conceal his abilities and keep them from attracting attention too soon; thus he can mature undisturbed. If conditions demand it, he can also enter public life, but that too he does with restraint. The wise man gladly leaves fame to others. He does not seek to have credited to himself things that stand accomplished, but hopes to release active forces; that is, he completes his works in such a manner that they may bear fruit for the future.


Koncentrer dig om at gøre det bedst mulige arbejde. Lad andre søge hæder. Du bør udvikle dig naturligt ind til det tidspunkt, hvor du kan træde frem.


Linje 4


Six in the fourth place means: A tied-up sack. No blame, no praise.

The dark element opens when it moves and closes when at rest. The strictest reticence is indicated here. The time is dangerous , because any degree of prominence leads either to the enmity of irresistible antagonists if one challenges them or to misconceived recognition if one is complaisant. Therefore a man ought to maintain reserve, be it in solitude or in the turmoil of the world, for there too he can hide himself so well that no one knows him.


Dette er en svær tid. Hold lav profil og udvikl dine indre ressourcer i en vis tilbagetrukkethed. Konfrontationer vil ikke føre til målet.


Linje 5


Six in the fifth place means: A yellow lower garment brings supreme good fortune.

Yellow is the color of the earth and of the middle; it is the symbol of that which is reliable and genuine. The lower garment is inconspicuously decorated--the symbol of aristocratic reserve. When anyone is called upon to work in a prominent but not independent position, true success depends on the utmost discretion. A man's genuineness and refinement should not reveal themselves directly; they should express themselves only indirectly as an effect from within.


Tilbageholdenhed med åbent at vise dit eget værd vil være mest gavnligt. Lad i stedet dine dyder indgå i alle dine forhold


Øverste linje


Six at the top means: Dragons fight in the meadow. Their blood is black and yellow.

In the top place the dark element should yield to the light. If it attempts to maintain a position to which it is not entitled and to rule instead of serving, it draws down upon itself the anger of the strong. A struggle ensues in which it is overthrown, with injury, however, to both sides. The dragon, symbol of heaven, comes to fight the false dragon that symbolized the inflation of the earth principle. Midnight blue is the color of heaven; yellow is the color of earth. Therefore, when black and yellow blood flow, it is a sign that in this unnatural contest both primal powers suffer injury.

When all the lines are sixes, it means: Lasting perseverance furthers.

When nothing but sixes appears, the hexagram of THE RECEPTIVE changes into the hexagram of THE CREATIVE. By holding fast to what is right, it gains the power of enduring. There is indeed no advance, but neither is there retrogression.
