Your question: I Ching Online

The original Richard Wilhelm translation for the hexagram line...

Hexagram 18
Ku - Work on What Has Been Spoiled [Decay]

yin above: Kên / Keeping Still, Mountain
yang below: Sun / The Gentle, Wind
I Ching Online


Hexagram Eighteen/Line Four

Six in the fourth place means:
Tolerating what has been spoiled by the father.
In continuing one sees humiliation.

'Father and Son' - Pablo Picasso

This shows the situation of someone too weak to take measures against decay that has its roots in the past and is just beginning to manifest itself. It is allowed to run its course. If this continues, humiliation will result.
