The Ripples of the Partnership Gua
Professor said the following about the eight trigrams:
“There are many levels in each trigram, and there are an infinite number of representations for each gua. They are like ripples in the water, never ending.”
To learn more about the Partnership gua, I have the following suggestion:
Read hexagrams 57, 48, 18, 46, 06, 47, 64 and 40. They all belong to the Partnership Palace (the eight early heaven hexagrams associated with Partnership).
Then read their polar opposites 51, 21,17, 25, 36, 22, 63 and 37 (their line for line opposites). These belong to the Knowledge Palace (the eight early heaven hexagrams associated with Knowledge).
When the opposites are read together (e.g., 57 & 51 or 48 & 21), you will better understand why we say, “Opposite guas work together.”
This is a great exercise to refine your understanding of a particular gua. Here we begin with Partnership. You will create a vision of the gua in both its spiritual and psychological states as they arise every day in our worldly lives.
