. KHOUEI No.38.
The order of Kua says: When "the unity" of the FAMILY (hex # 37) runs out, then enters the opposition of opposing forces. KHOUEI # 38 means OPPOSITION between two compatible. The art always favored of the waste of vital energy for the benefit of surface reflections renewing itself until the separation vision, that is what causes fragmentation, wear (hex # 23), this is also the consequence natural for any activities contrary to FIRST PRINCIPLE of COHESION. The hexagram is composed of the trigram LI above, the flame which burns in a quest for height and the lower trigram TUI, the Lake which humidity tends to seep through below, here the movements of Water and Fire are going in opposite directions, one goes down while the other rises, opposing trends and properties. This is the meaning of Ideogram KHOUEI : OPPOSITION symbolized by two girls who live in a same house, but having their trends drawing them into two different directions ; divergence that does not seek UNITY, inevitably leads to opposition, KHOUEI.
OPPOSITION, TO ABIDE IN THE PERFORMANCE TO ACCOMPLISH SMALL THINGS, OMEN OF HAPPINESS.
Kua KHOUEI indicates a time when opposition forces should unite to escape selves in disagreement. OPPOSITION is usually not felt as a moment of joy, nor is it perceived as a situation peculiar to generate happiness, but the qualities inherent in each single trigrams are excellent, the omen is JOYFULL despite the opposition. Clearly, small parts of a whole can only find the essence common of their rights in the absolute unity with PRINCIPLE ONE CREATOR, the text of the formula said : in opposition to stick to the performance to Accomplish small things, omen of happiness. Lake and Fire represent the fundamental differences that animate all life. In general the opposition of Fire and Lake is felt as a separation, but in real, it is not so because the opposition between Water and Fire is a polarity of differences that complement each other in the very meaning of LIFE , then we can say that the opposition, in its own way, also works to cohesion. Heaven and Earth, Man and Woman, Spiritual and Sex seem opposed, but that is only perceptions of appearances by the senses, in real their trends in essence profound have a common origin (hex # 13), they are complementary forces, one and the other can not exist without each other in the TOTALITY.
To the point of view of the Kua TRANSFORMATION, opposition comes from different trends of the two divergent movements of Fire and Water, one tending upwards while the other tends downwards. In Kua JEN KIA (hex # 37) the opposites are in COHESION, in Koua KHOUEI (hex # 38) opposites are opposed, but in the ESSENCE of TOTALITY the opposition is overcome if the FIFTH WISDOM line is related Receptive to the down SECOND WISDOM line positive, as to receive it and help it to rise in the UNION. However, this movement of voluntary MODESTY (hex # 15) to promote HIGH COHESION, it should stick to the Accomplishment of small things, for taking care of little things, one will certainly succeed in its GREATNESS.
Conversely, if one is neglecting the performance to accomplish its little things, then it will also be neglecting its GREATNESS possible, how could another one then entrust him with difficult cases to resolve and difficult tasks to achieve ? surely, processing thus will lead them both to failure. GREATNESS success always follows the performance tthat accomplish small things first and that is another Universal Law.
The commentary of the decisive formula says :
OPPOSITION : TREND ELEVATION FIRE OPPOSITES DOWN WATER TREND, TWO GIRLS LIVE TOGETHER IN THE SAME HOUSE BUT THEY HAVE TWO DIFFERENT GOALS.
The commentary of the decisive formula first explains the meaning of Kua KHOUEI, then it deals with the skills it expresses, then the formula finally talks about the two possible orientations of Life : the Way of UNION and the way of DISUNION and finally exclaims on the greatness of the substance and function in cohesion. Fire tends to rise as soon as it happens, the water tends to descend as soon as it is excited....These two primordial energies are opposing forces different and this is the Kua of OPPOSITION. While Heaven and Earth, Yin and Yang have trends that push the opposition, however their properties complement each other for their cohesion ; even so men and women experience these trends as opposition, nevertheless the principle of cohesion that animates them, very well drives them to seek UNION.
All things and beings look different on the surface, but their deep inside desire of centrality is similar. Two young daughters live in the same house, but each has a different purpose, and if their trends are causing their divergence, their ESSENCE OF COMMON ORIGIN maintain their cohesion. In other words, if there is diversity ? that means that originally there was unity, if originally there was no unity ?, there could not be diversity.
In beings and things of the Universe, OPPOSITION occurs during transition states and or tension states, such as the changing of seasons, Changing of Era, or all other changings, and Water and Fire are both opposite and complementary. In reality, what senses consciousness of man is mistaking for opposing forces only, them in TRUTH are actually complementary forces and it is by the conscious conjugation of their diverging oppositions and their diverging movements in MUTUAL AGREEMENT, formed by their contrast in UNION, that is given a dynamic cohesion to the Universe.
SATISFACTION AND COMMITMENT TO CLARITY AND ADVANCING THE SWEET ACTION IN THE INCOMING RISE, THIS HAS JUSTICE AND IS LOVING TO FORCE ENERGY, BECAUSE OF THIS THAT IS OMEN HAPPY IN THE PERFORMANCE TO ACCOMPLISH SMALL THINGS, FORTUNE.
A PERFECT KUA is the RISING OF JOY (hex # 58) by the GIVEN FREELY BID (hex No. 2) to ATTACH (hex # 30) to the PURE LIGHT OF INTELLIGENCE, PRIME SOURCE ORIGIN of Heaven and Earth and all that they contain. TRUE JOY is the fullness of OUT of TIME PURE FEELING, but any pure emotion is constantly threatened to be overshadowed, altered by the sense of separation in Time. In other words, whenever there is opposition and that the decisive formula wished to draw attention to the importance of the occupation of the Centre for COHESION, to no longer be subjected to the opposition as separation, the formula also incites to SELF CONTROL PERFECT and says about it : ADVANCING THE SWEET ACTION IN THE INCOMING RISE, such as in the Kua TSIN (hex # 35) and Koua TSING (hex # 48).
Moments of opposition are in general not that easy to live because they are too often felt like a punishment, a frustrating separation. But if we are being RECEPTIVE enough (like the fifth line at the fith place at the Center of the Upper Light trigram) to stick (hex # 26) to the TRUTH (hex # 61), then it will enforce us with the Necessary Force for the cohesion of our oppositions and we will rediscover the pleasure of healthy communication in the RISING JOY (hex # 58).
Although for now it is not yet possible to find the VIVID CONNECTION between opposites or to accomplish great things, because of the opposition, it is nevertheless possible to take this moment to accomplish small things and it is precisely through the GATHERING (hex # 45) of small things to ACCOMPLISH their UNION that comes back the lucky omen. Clearly, in the opposition, contrary to all appearances, this is not good and bad, nor is it bitter and sweet or the joy and sadness that oppose, but only the idea that we make of self about opposite forces.
By nature, we tend to reject anything that seems bitter or bad, and we plan our pleasure in everything that we think sweet joy and happiness, but unfortunately, appearances are often deceptive and choosing a party by excluding the other, thus we provoke the separated vision between the opposing forces, for Bitter and Joy, good and bad, Yin and Yang are an inseparable pair, like the CALYX filled with bitter is ALSO filled with DIVINE NARCOSIS, Forces Opposites United as ONE and UNIQUE SAME ENERGY for the success of the SOVEREIGN INTEGRAL.
In times of opposition, one should know how to look honestly inside and speak sincerely, without ever trying to cheat, because if TRUTH can sometimes hurt, its ""injuries""" are not fatal, which is not the case with lies and deceit. The hurts of TRUTH are comparable to someone who prunes vine, so that it gives the best fruit in due season, the wounds of lies and deceit are comparable to someone who neglect pruning its vineyard, then it dries up, has scarse fruits with not goods and or dies smothered by weeds.
The fifth line relates to the knowledge about using the Sacred Force accurately, and yet here it can not yet achieve the Greatness of the good omen, how is it possible ? Simple again is the answer : in the Universe if the forces are opposite, it is SIGN that their THIRST for UNION is not yet sufficiently INTENSE and that one should still encourage self to seek and deepen again and again their LOVING CORRESPONDENCE to the UNION FUSION.
Only when the opposing forces are made to focus their efforts in the accomplishment of UNITY, they can merge through all oppositions. For one who sees clearly, the opposition may be the SALT that lead to THE THIRST for UNION. Explaination of this using the virtues of simple trigram TUI and LI and practicing the TRANSFORMATION of one another by the substance of the kua. When theYIN of the sun LI which is still heavenly water and the YANG of the moon TUI which is still Earthly Fire, call selves to the UNION, then the FUSION of the YIN and the YANG is done by the YIN in the YANG without that the YANG through that process loses its integrity and thus the YIN becomes YANG PURE : that is to say, the FUSION of YIN YANG undifferentiated.... PUR YANG is the PERFECT UNION FUSION of YIN and YANG undifferentiated, ENERGY PURE radiant light that overcomes all oppositions.
HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE OPPOSED, BUT THE PRINCIPLE THAT ANIMATES THEM IS IDENTICAL IN THEM. MALE AND FEMALE ARE OPPOSED, BUT THE ESSENCE THAT UNITES THEM IS IDENTICAL. TRENDS OF THE TEN BILLIONS OF BEINGS AND THINGS SEEM ALL DIFFERENT BUT THE NUCLEUS CORE THAT UNITES THEM IS THE SAME. GREAT IS THE COHESION OF THE SUBSTANCE AND THE FUNCTION IN THE TIME OF THE OPPOSITION.
Consider the origin common of Opposites by prime reason to be as to illuminate the need for cohesion between function and substance in a moment of opposition ... ..
See opposites as complementary differences and not enemies ones, because that is the Way men who sees clearly follow to UNITE what all see as "separated".
Seeing the identity in the appearance of what constitutes this identity, that is the science of the ordinary common man and this science is not yet TRUE SCIENCE because it is partial and does perpetuate the sense of separation, that does not really exist in TRUE REALITY..Man who sees clearly does not act thus, he knows that appearance is often what obscures the essential identity in WHICH evolves the outer envelope, and because he has this KNOWLEDGE, everything is alive on another reality dimension than the usual dimension of the reality visible to the senses...Because of this KNOWLEDGE, he is living on another plan of Life than the ordinary plan of existence where appearances seem to evolve, and it is precisely this KNOWLEDGE of the ESSENCE of things and beings that sticks to the IDENTITY PRIME ESSENCE ORIGIN of ALL Origins, without being fooled by appearances, which allows him to link together the various dimensions, of which he is the prism that unify the oppositions of the Universe.
In other words, by illuminating through the UNION of the Sun and the Moon, the relationship between appearance and REALITY, between Earth and Heaven, between the male and female, between the body and the spirit, between Matter and Light, the being here does not know anymore whether it is more by one, or by the other, or if one is more by itself than by the other, or if the other is more self by one than the other, which is still an Opposition that needs the UNION to solve the separated vision. Males and females have different physical characteristics on the outside and are opposed in their nature, one penetrates, the other receives, but on the inside the essence in them is the same for each of them and that's what attracts them toward each other for the UNION.
The means of the arrival of beings in a life experience is different for each species, yet the BIG LIFE of which they arise is all THE SAME in everyone. Although all people are different, the PURPOSE OF PRIME SOURCE ORIGIN of all origins that animates them is the same for everyone, and this, whatever is the position of each occupied in the vast universe. Whether it is the vastness of Heaven and Earth, the crowd of planets and galaxies, the infinite variety of species that inhabit them and even if everything seems to oppose, in reality, this opposition is only illusion, because ONE Principle unites them all in a love without limits.
Thus, only the man who sees clearly is able to recognize an identity common to all in the diversity and to ensure by that, that the individual differences complement each other instead of conflicting. In opposition, the WAY of the UNION is crucial to overcome all oppositions, it is also the great value of the opposition to create a thirst for UNION. Explanation admiring the symbolic formula : GREAT is the COHESION of function and substance in time of OPPOSITION.
The commentary of the symbolic formula says :
UPWARD THE FIRE, DOWN BELOW THE LAKE, THEIR TRENDS OPPOSE THEM. THE MAN WHO SEES CLEAR RECOGNIZES WHAT UNITES THEM AND IN ALL COMPANIES DOES NOT LOSE HIS OWN INDIVIDUALITY.
The two elements of Water and Fire, even placed together in one house do not mix, but retain their own individuality. Thus, whatever the place or the company in which the Man who sees clearly stands, he never allows himself to make self similar to the nature of those around him, whose nature may differs grandly from his, even so by interest or common relationships that he may have with them. Although the nature of Water and Fire can be fought by one another in their tendencies, however, we must recognize that through their ESSENCE OF ORIGIN COMMON, the union of Water and Fire can overcome all oppositions. Joy of Lake TUI symbolizes the LOVING CORRESPONDENCE (hex # 58) between the opposites and the Light and Clarity of LI symbolizes THE LIVING UNCONSUMING FIRE (hex # 30) without WHICH any LOVING CORRESPONDENCIES is only falsehood. Clearly, LOVING CORRESPONDENCE is a cult of human warmth of love that man must know how to complete with UNCONSUMING FIRE, without identifying its action to that of those who constantly hurt or neglect them .
