Yi 226: my creativity



Line-2
Legge: The second line, dynamic, shows a large wagon with its load. In whatever direction advance is made, there will be no error.
Wilhelm/Baynes: A big wagon for loading. One may undertake something. No blame.
Blofeld: There are large supply wagons. [Apparently we need not fear failure through lack of resources.] If there is some desired goal (or destination), setting out (to attain it) will involve no error.
Liu: Loading the big wagon. Undertaking without blame. [One can expect to achieve his undertaking and acquire property.]
Ritsema/Karcher: The great chariot used to carry. Possessing directed going. Without fault.
Shaughnessy: The great cart is used to carry; there is someplace to go; there is no trouble.
Cleary (1): Using a great car for transport, when there is a place to go there is no fault.
Cleary (2): Using a large car for transport, there is a place to go, etc.
Wu: To haul in a cart to a certain destination is without fault.
 
COMMENTARY
Confucius/Legge: This refers to the virtue accumulated by the subject of the line, so that he will suffer no loss in the conduct of affairs. Wilhelm/ Baynes: Accumulating in the middle; thus no harm results. Blofeld: Some place where supplies have been accumulated will escape from danger. Ritsema/Karcher: Amassing centering, not destroying indeed. Cleary (2): If the load is balanced you will not fail. Wu: Means to accumulate at the center with no failure.
Legge: The dynamic second line has his proper correlate in the fifth line ruler of the figure, and will subordinate his strength to his humility.
 
NOTES AND PARAPHRASES
Siu: Accumulated virtues and competent helpers enable the man to assume great responsibilities. Like a huge wagon ready for loading, he subordinates strength to humility.
Wing: You not only have tremendous resources to work with, but you also possess the wherewithal to coordinate these assets and make them work for you. Such ingenuity will allow you to fearlessly attempt ambitious endeavors.
Editor: A wagon is a "vessel" which contains something as well as a vehicle which can go somewhere. Thus the image suggests the power to accomplish a task or reach a goal.
