Hexagram Mirrors - Line Reflections
(line pathways)

Mirror group 21.3-30.3-22.4-30.4

About seeing the value behind the appearance

  21.3 yin: Biting cured meat, encountering poison. Small distress. Without fault.
  Some difficult things have to be uncovered in order to heal them.

 

  30.3 yang: The Bright Bird of sunset. Not drumming on jars and singing, then big laments of old age. Pitfall.
  It is better to see a half glass as half full then as half empty.

Lines 21.3 and 30.3 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side, Thunder-Fire and vv. Asking for different actions.

  22.4 yin: Then flourishing, then silver haired, then a white horse soaring up. No bandits, marriage.
  You can make a show but only when you are sincere. Be careful with it.

 

  30.4 yin: Then arising suddenly, then praised, then dying, then thrown away.
  Some things seem much but are nothing.

Lines 22.4 and 30.4 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side, Mountain-Fire and vv. Asking for different actions.

Lines 21.3 and 22.4 and also 30.3 and 30.4 are each others qianyao (upside-down). Here are similar actions but in different landscapes (complementary contexts).
What was up, outside or mental, is now down, inside or physical.

Mirror groups 21.3-30.3 and 29.3-48.3 are contrasts
(all yang lines of Mirror 21.3 are yin lines in Mirror 29.3 and vv)
Mirror 21.3 is about seeing the value behind the appearance
Mirror 29.3: what we miss to see may be a very important part
