I Ching
by Martin Burke

Possession in Great Measure

clinging flame and creative heaven

possession, great success

fire in heaven-possession in great measure
the superior man curbs evil
and furthers the will of heaven

                             *

no harm and no blame-
if one remains conscious
there will be no blame

a big wagon
a big undertaking
no blame

the petty man cannot accomplish
what the prince can

he makes distinction between
himself and all others
there will be no blame

his truth is accessible
he has good fortune

blessed by heaven
there is nothing but good fortune
