Classical Interpretation

Preponderance of the great (28) is the culmination.

The image

The lake rises above the trees: the image of preponderance of the great. Thus when alone, the superior man has peace of mind, and if he has to renounce the world, he is courageous.

The judgement

Preponderance of the great. The ridge pole bends. It furthers to have somewhere to go. Success. Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
