12. P'i - Standstill [Stagnation]

Ch'ien The creative, Heaven
K'un The receptive, Earth

The Judgement

STANDSTILL. Evil people do not further
The perseverance of the superior man.
The great departs; the small approaches.

The Image

Heaven and earth do not unite:
The image of STANDSTILL.
Thus the superior man falls back upon his inner worth
In order to escape the difficulties.
He does not permit himself to be honored with revenue.
