Fire above, lake below: Opposition. Amid fellowship, superior people retain individuality.
Opposition: Good fortune in small matters.
睽孤，見豕負塗， 載鬼一車，先張之弧， 後說之弧，匪寇婚媾， 往遇雨則吉。
Isolated through opposition: seeing a companion as a pig covered with dirt, as a wagon full of devils. First drawing a bow against them, then laying the bow aside. Not a robber, but a suitor. As one goes, rain falls; then good fortune comes.
Regret vanishes. An ally is close, like biting skin. Going together without blame.
Isolated through opposition: meeting a like-minded person one can confide in. Danger, but no blame.
見輿曳，其牛掣， 其人天且劓， 无初有終。
Seeing a wagon dragged back, the oxen halted, a man’s hair & nose cut off. A bad beginning that ends well.
One meets their superior in an alley. No blame.
Remorse disappears. If you lose your horse, do not run after it; it will come back on its own. See evil people without blame.
