49 – Forty-Nine Ko / Revolution
Fire ignites within the Lake, defying conditions that would deny it birth or survival: The Superior Person reads the Signs of the Times and makes the Season apparent to all.
The support you need will come only after the deed is done. Renewed forces, however, will provide fresh energy for exceptional progress. Persevere. All differences vanish.
A revolutionary Change must be made forcibly. There is no negotiating with the Established Order. Perfect timing is essential. Let the abuse of power become apparent and oppressive to those around you before making your move. Lay the groundwork, sow the seeds for Revolution without tipping your hand prematurely. You will need a strong foundation, because you will have to bring about this necessary change alone. You cannot count on popular support, so you must wait until there is massive dissent. Then the avenue for your assault will be cleared.
Nine in the fifth place means:
You transform into a tiger before their eyes. Your very being commands an awe that makes consulting the oracle unnecessary.
The great man changes like a tiger. Even before he questions the oracle He is believed.
A tigerskin, with its highly visible black stripes on a yellow ground, shows its distinct pattern from afar. It is the same with a revolution brought about by a great man: large, clear guiding lines become visible, understandable to everyone. Therefore he need not first consult the oracle, for he wins the spontaneous support of the people.
14 – Fourteen Ta Yu / Great Treasures
The Fire of clarity illuminates the Heavens to those below: The Superior Person possesses great inner treasures — compassion, economy, and modesty. These treasures allow the benevolent will of Heaven to flow through him outward to curb evil and to further good.
You have become an instrument of Heaven’s will, offering a balance in the world around you. It is not swashbuckling prowess or uncanny talent that qualifies you for this office, but your simplest gifts — your modesty, your compassion, your economy. Because you can see clearly who most needs a miracle, Heaven’s bounty is being put at your disposal.
