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

Hexagram 41
Sun - Decrease

yin above: Kên / Keeping Still, Mountain
yang below: Tui / The Joyous, Lake


Hexagram Forty-One/Line Six

Nine at the top means:
If one is increased without depriving others,
There is no blame.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
It furthers one to undertake something.
One obtains servants
But no longer has a separate home.

Las Meninas

'Las Meninas' (Spanish for The Maids of Honor) - 1656 - Diego Velázquez (1599–1660)
Velazquez himself painting the Royal Couple, while the Royal Daughter and her servants, some clerics and a dog, look on - Museo del Prado, Madrid

There are people who dispense blessings to the whole world. Every increase in power that comes to them benefits the whole of mankind and therefore does not bring decrease to others. Through perseverance and zealous work a man wins success and finds helpers as they are needed. But what he accomplishes is not a limited private advantage; it is a public good and available to everyone.
