Yi Jing (I Ching)
“Book of Changes"
Heaven & Earth
Yang is the active force and primary initiator.
The Qian (Ch’ien) trigram is made up of three solid lines and is the most pure yang; positive, creative, progressive and persevering.
These are considered the energies of Heaven; the active, initiating force of the universe.
The Kun (K’un) trigram, made up of three broken lines, is the most pure yin; cooperative, obedient, submissive and receptive. The “receptiveness” of this trigram encourages one to follow a great person, a great goal, or a great principle – essential qualities to self-cultivation. Kun represents the energies of Earth; giving support to everyone and everything without discrimination.
Qian and Kun compliment each other. The receptive and submissive Kun needs the creative and productive Qian to be its leader. The initiative of Qian needs the patience of Kun to see things through.
We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel;
But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the wheel depends.
We turn clay to make a vessel;
But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the vessel depends.
We pierce doors and windows to make a house;
And it is on these spaces where there is nothing that the usefulness of the house depends.
Therefore just as we take advantage of what is, we should recognize the usefulness of what is not.
