The mirror of 21.1-22.6-35.1-36-6
About how some(times) things cannot be changed.
21.1: Shoes are foot-fetters, extinguishing the toes. Without fault.
Sometimes it is not possible to act. Ouch, but not your fault.
22.6: White beauty. Without fault.
Doesn't seem much, but it is real.
35.1: Then advancing, then arrested. Determination auspicious. Collect captives and riches, no fault.
Sometimes it is not possible to progress unhindered.
But even when you cannot reach your goal, you can collect profits.
36.6: Not bright, dark. In the beginning climbing up to heaven, afterwards entering the earth.
Things will always go up and down. Not everything can be avoided.
The theme of this mirror: clear up all appearances
