45. 澤地萃 Ts'ui / Gathering Together [Massing]
Gathering Together. Success.
The king approaches his temple.
It furthers one to see the great man.
This brings success. Perseverance furthers.
To bring great offerings creates good fortune.
It furthers one to undertake something.
Over the earth, the lake:
The image of Gathering Together.
Thus the superior man renews his weapons
In order to meet the unforseen.
If you are sincere, but not to the end, There will
sometimes be confusion, sometimes
gathering together. If you call out, Then after
one grasp of the hand you can laugh again.
Regret not. Going is without blame.
Letting oneself be drawn
Brings good fortune and remains blameless.
If one is sincere,
It furthers one to bring even a small offering.
Gathering together amid sighs.
Nothing that would further.
Going is without blame.
Great good fortune. No blame.
If in gathering together one has position,
This brings no blame. If there are some who
are not yet sincerely in the work,
Sublime and enduring perseverance is
needed. Then remorse disappears.
Lamenting and sighing, floods of tears.
