Hexagram Mirrors - Line Reflections

The mirror of 51.2-54.2-52.5-53.5

About doing the best you can without blame

 51.2 The shock comes, danger. A hundred thousand lost coins. Climbing the nine mounds, do not pursue, the seventh day you will acquire them.

 Not everything needs big efforts, and panic serves nobody.

 54.2 Dim-eyed yet able to see. Fruitful: the determination of a hermit.

 Do what you are able to do and create your life accordingly.

 52.5 Stabilize one's jawbone. The words have order, regrets disappear.

 Only talk when you have something to say.

 53.5 The wild geese gradually approach the hill. The woman for three years does not get pregnant, (but) nothing can stop completion. Auspicious.

 Make the best of difficult situations without blaming anyone or anything.

The theme of this mirror:
accept the limits of what you can do - but do that right

Mirrors 51.2 and 53.2 are complementary

(all yang lines of the mirror above are yin lines in the mirror below and vv)

Mirror 51.2 is about doing the best you can within your limits
Mirror 53.2 is about accepting limits to what you can do
