Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's and subsequent translations of the I Ching
Thunderclouds approaching from the West, but no rain yet. The Superior Person nourishes himself and remains of good cheer to condition himself for the moment of truth. Great Success if you sincerely keep to your course. You may cross to the far shore. You must now endure this Dangling — either a carrot before your nose, or a sword above your head. This strange mix of apprehension and anticipation is a Purgatory. There is nothing more you can do to affect the outcome. You must now submit to the Fates.
