…is one more translation.
I’ve just added my own working translation to Clarity’s plain-text online I Ching reading. You’ll see it in the drop-down menu of translations provided you’re logged in – like this:
(It looks indescribably pretentious, but I couldn’t think what else to put in the space available.) If it’s not visible, you need to join or login, and you’ll find links for both of these by clicking ‘More I Ching links’ at the top right.
I was going to leave it at that, and make the pdf of the whole thing available only to paying clients. Then I made a test reading, and received Hexagram 42, Increase or Blessing, moving to Hexagram 2. Moving lines…
‘Harvest when you apply this to make great beginnings.
Great good fortune, no mistake.’
So far, so good. :)
‘Sincere and confident, with a benevolent heart,
No question: good fortune from the source.
Sincerity, confidence and benevolence are my own de.’
Happy Christmas. :)
‘Absolutely no blessing for this one,
Maybe someone strikes her.
To order your heart without perseverance -
Um, maybe I should think this through again…
So I did. A further reading, involving Hexagram 18, gave me insight into where this desire to hold back was coming from, and suggested it was time for me to move beyond it. I wrote an ‘Acknowledgements’ section and downloaded OpenOffice to create the pdf version, which you can download from the members’ area.
