HEXAGRAM 59: DISPERSION

A leader returns. Cross the water. Success.

The Lines (base to top)

Dragged from danger by a horse
Carried off on others' legs
Stretched thin, at the breaking point
Restless mind goes wandering
Dripping sweat, crying out loud
Don't get into it -- run off

Commentary

Wind over water. A cleansing wind.

Fewer mosquitoes.
