Hexagram Mirrors - Line Reflections
(line pathways)

Mirror group 29.3-48.3-47.4-29.4

What we miss to see may be a very important part

  29.3 yin: Throbbing sounds are coming. Risks, and also stuck. Entering the tunnels, no benefit.
  A lot dwells in the dark. Don't descend to chase it but let it come and examine it.

 

  48.3 yang: The well is dredged, no one drinks. It makes my heart ache. One might draw from it. The king is bright, together we receive its blessing.
  We don't see what we don't expect. Open your mind.

Lines 29.3 and 48.3 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side, Water-Wind and vv. Asking for different actions.

  29.4 yin: A flask of wine, a platter added, using earthenware. Received handed in from the window. At the end no fault.
  When things are kept simple, one can see their real value.

 

  47.4 yang: Coming gently, gently. Confined in a metal chariot. Distress. There is completion (or: distress comes to an end).
  Adorments make actions difficult, intuition slow. You need more energy and time than when things are clear and direct.

Lines 29.4 and 47.4 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side, Lake-Water and vv. Asking for different actions.

Lines 29.3 and 29.4 and also 47.4 and 48.3 are each others qianyao (upside-down). Here are similar actions but in different landscapes (reversed contexts).
What was up, outside or mental, is now down, inside or physical.

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