The mirror of 05.4-06.3-43.4-44.3
About holding on to your moral ground.
5.4: Waiting in the blood. Get out of the cave.
Don't stay in a bad place.
6.3: To feed on ancient virtue. Determination: danger. In the end: auspicious. If following king’s affairs: without accomplishment.
Not bending over to please others but staying in your worth may not bring you much in the world but a lot in yourself.
43.4: The buttocks without skin. One moves poorly now, holding on to a goat. Regret goes away. Hearing the words, no belief.
When you don't have the power to act or speak, then wait and things will get solved.
44.3: The buttocks without skin. Moreover one moves haltingly. Danger. Without great fault.
You do the best you can and if that is not enough, so be it.
The theme of this mirror:
Mirrors 05.4 and 23.4 are contrasts
(all yang lines of Mirror 5.4 are yin lines in Mirror 23.4 and vv)
Mirror 5.4 is about staying in your moral ground.
Mirror 23.4 is about being clear about what you decide to do.
