小過 Xiao Guo














Discussion:


Small matters can allow more freedom. However, do not be unreasonable.

When at a disadvantage, you need to give in more to seek a solution.

Be objective at matters.

Sometimes it is hard to judge the matters, seek the right situation to solve, or else may encounter misfortune.


〈小過〉卦的含義,不是指小的過失,而是指小事可以超過,但超過的程度不 宜過多。

人們辦事,有時為形勢所迫,確實需要過正以矯枉,過中以求中。

卦辭顯示,小過有範圍、有條件:

一是宜下不宜上,要求順應人情事理,不可自以為是; 二是宜小不宜大,只適用於日常生活,不適用於國家大事。

這兩點的基礎是「利貞」,即理學家程頤所說的「不失時宜」。

卦辭講小過可以吉也可以亨,對照六爻爻辭,無言吉和言亨的字樣,這似乎隨著人們對事情的拿捏是否適當而定。

但因實際掌握小過的標準並不容易,要能因應時機而變通運用、審慎斟酌才行,以免自己招 災致禍。

I am not your usual geomancer. I put effort into where the heart matters most.

My passion didn't started as a business idea. It began with a curious mind.  Feng Shui is not a religion. It is a lifestyle where we work, sleep, eat, and cook matters in the flow of energy.
