13. 天火同人 T'ung Jên / Fellowship with Men
Fellowship with Men in the open. Success.
It furthers one to cross the great water.
The perseverance of the superior man furthers.
Heaven together with fire:
The image of Fellowship with Men.
Thus the superior man organizes the clans
And makes distinctions between things.
Fellowship with men at the gate.
Fellowship with men in the clan.
He hides weapons in the thicket;
He climbs the high hill in front of it.
For three years he does not rise up.
He climbs up on his wall; he cannot attack.
Men bound in fellowship first weep and lament,
But afterward they laugh.
After great struggles they succeed in meeting.
Fellowship with men in the meadow.
乾上 above Ch'ien The Creative, Heaven
離下 below Li The Clinging, Flame
