42. 風雷益 I / Increase
Increase. It furthers one
To undertake something.
It furthers one to cross the great water.
Wind and thunder: the image of Increase.
Thus the superior man:
If he sees good, he imitates it;
If he has faults, he rids himself of them.
It furthers one to accomplish great deeds.
Supreme good fortune. No blame.
Someone does indeed increase him;
Ten pairs of tortoises cannot oppose it.
Constant perseverance brings good fortune.
The king presents him before God.
One is enriched through unfortunate events.
No blame, if you are sincere
And walk in the middle,
And report with a seal to the prince.
If you walk in the middle And report to the
prince, He will follow. It furthers one to be used
In the removal of the capital.
If in truth you have a kind heart, ask not.
Supreme good fortune. Truly, kindness will be
recognized as your virtue.
He brings increase to no one.
Indeed, someone even strikes him.
He does not keep his heart constantly steady.
