坎卦

在2021的啟示

卦象

坎为水,长流不滞,是坎卦的卦象。

君子从中受到启发, 恒久保持美好的德行, 不断提高教化人民的水平。

卦象

坎卦是两个坎卦重叠而成,象征一个陷阱接着一个陷阱,一个险阻接着一个险阻,一个险难接着一个险难,大水泛滥,灾难重重,缕遭坎坷。

上卦的坎可代表天上的水, 即雨、露、霜、雪、云、雾等, 也代表外面来的灾难;

下卦的坎可代表地中的水, 即河、海、泉、湖、泊等, 也代表内部引发的灾难。 解釋 坎为陷入、陷阱,为险难之境。 此时应坚持信心,才能豁然贯通。

得此卦者,运气不佳,多难危险, 事多困阻,宜谨言慎行。

面臨著重重的險阻, 永遠在不停地活動, 相繼而至,持續不斷,表現出 “行險而不失其信” 的堅毅的品德。

君子觀此卦象, 處于坎險之時, 一方面要永遠保持自己的德行, 不變操守, 同時也要熟習政教事務, 以提高自己應變的能力。

啟示

「坎」明明是險地,為什麼水還是相續而至呢? 因為這些險阻,對水來說, 是司空見慣,習以為常的, 因此險阻在前,還是絡繹不絕的到來, 這是「習」的效果。

水不以坎為難, 人亦要不以險阻為難, 要養成這種心理素質, 卻不是一朝一夕的工夫, 所要學習的,要下不息的工夫去修養。

朱震(-1138年) 《漢上易傳》說: 「常德行可以涉險,習教事可以夷險。」

蘇軾(1037年1月8日—1101年8月24日)的《東坡易傳》說: 「君子平居常其德行,故遇險而不變。習為教事,故遇險而能應。」

傅佩荣(1950年12月16日—)解

时运:逐步升迁,随时防患。财运:财如流水,商运亨通。家宅:邻居营造;亲上加亲。身体:水泻之症,虔心祷告。

I like this interpretation for Kan Guan

Dear Hilary,
Of all the hexagrams, 29 is one of my favourites, especially since during a long period in my life this was the one that popped up most when consulting. I found great comfort in the I Ching translation by Javary & Faure (French). Here’s what I read there: “The name of this hexagram is formed by two characters: Xi + Kan. Xi figuratively shows the situation of the little bird, still in the nest, but pushed by its mother to leave the nest into the void, because it has to discover the art of flying, or how to be carried by this void. This image is used to express the idea of ‘learning by repeating’. Kan figuratively expresses the idea of a place where solid ground disappears under our feet, thus provoking a sudden sense of fear and anxiety. Xi & Kan together show that when vertigo paralyses, it is by action we have to react. Daring to advance, that’s the tool to prevent inertion to take over. When we doubt our possibilities, we can discover, buried deep down in ourselves, unsuspected possibilities when we dare to engage.” And he continues with a beautiful translation of “Movement brings honour”: ‘Agir amène à se surpasser’ or: ‘To act leads to surpass oneself’. Translating always is a kind of interpretation of course, but Javary & Faure’s view on 29 for me was an eye opener and helped a lot.In a way the image of this little bird appealed to me, because it overcomes the fear of flying simply by suddenly discovering it was its reason of being, it was printed in its dna. Our deepest fears sometimes lead the way to discover/uncover our reason of being, that which makes us unique.
