Hexagram Mirrors - Line Reflections
(line pathways)

The mirror grouping of 51.3-52.4-55.3-56.4

About how to deal with outer facts (shocks and lulls).

 51.3 The shock: reviving, reviving. The shock moves, without mistake.
Let shocks move you, but keep your presence of mind.

 

 52.4 Stabilize oneself. Without fault.
Stability should be an inner condition.

 

 55.3 In Feng raincurtains. At midday one sees froth. Breaking one's right arm, no fault.
Sometimes there is nothing you can or need to do.

 

 56.4 The wanderer is in a resting place and obtains money and an axe. My heart is not pleased.
Stability is great but no guarantee for happiness. Life needs challenges.

The theme of this mirror:

Mirror groupings 51.3 and 57.3 are contrasts

(all yang lines of Mirror 51.3 are yin lines in Mirror 57.3 and vv)

Mirror 51.3 is about how to deal with outer facts.
Mirror 57.3 is about how to deal with inner facts.
