HEXAGRAM 29: PIT

The abyss. A dark hour. Don't linger.

The Lines (base to top)

One pit inside another
The sides of the pits are steep
Falling, falling into them
Pouring wine into a glass
The pits will never be filled
A hostage is bound with cord

Commentary

Water over water. There is water at the bottom of the ocean.

Submersed and surrounded. The only hope is to be as water.
