14. 火天大有 Ta Yu / Possession in Great Measure
Possession in Great Measure.
Fire in heaven above:
The image of Possession in Great Measure.
Thus the superior man curbs evil and furthers
good, And thereby obeys the benevolent will of
No relationship with what is harmful;
There is no blame in this.
If one remains conscious of difficulty,
One remains without blame.
A big wagon for loading.
One may undertake something. No blame.
A prince offers it to the Son of Heaven.
A petty man cannot do this.
He makes a difference
Between himself and his neighbor. No blame.
He whose truth is accessible, yet dignified,
Has good fortune.
He is blessed by heaven.
Nothing that does not further.
離上 above Li The Clinging, Flame
乾下 below Ch'ien The Creative, Heaven
