Hexagram 61, Inner Truth

The Judgment says:

Inner truth: Pigs and Fishes

Good Fortune

It furthers one to cross the great water.

Perseverance furthers.

The Wilhelm/Baynes I Ching says that Pigs and Fishes are dumb animals and difficult to influence, then says that inner truth must grow to influence them. It is about relationships, “not simple intimacy or a secret bond” if it is between thieves and can turn into hate. But, when it is based on what is right it remains steadfast.

THE IMAGE then talks about criminal cases and delaying executions.
