Yi 1514: more on that 64.4

That 64.4.

I add the following found thoughts on the line because one fits where the sense of Now IS The Time (to start this march) and the other resonated re: the shadow element, and a certain psychological unwieldiness - is that a word? - I have encountered.


"Nine in the fourth place means:
Perseverance brings good fortune.
Remorse disappears.
Shock, thus to discipline the Devil's Country.
For three years, great realms are rewarded.

Now it is the time of struggle. The transition must be completed. We must make ourselves strong in resolution; this brings good fortune. All misgivings that might arise in such grave times of struggle must be silenced. It is a question of a fierce battle to break and to discipline the Devil's Country, the forces of decadence. But the struggle also has its reward. Now is the time to lay the foundations of power and mastery for the future."


Line 4 "Perseverance brings good fortune, remorse disappears. Shock was used to conquer the Devil’s Country and in the 3rd year success. Changes to (4) Youthful Folly. A willingness to go the distance is important because success will not come quickly. Youthfully Folly is a message that we make no mistakes through trial and error. The reference to the Devil’s Country suggests how the closer we get to success, the more we want to give up. Our Shadow and fears manifest more strongly when we are pushing beyond our comfort zone. The trials can be exhausting but again, without trial and error one cannot succeed. Forget each misstep and just concentrate on the goal. If you persevere in this mindset you will succeed."


These resonate deeply and are both very helpful, thus noted.
