Conflict (06) means: not to love.
Heaven and water go opposite to each other: the image of conflict. Thus in all his trades the superior man considers the beginning.
The conflict. You are truthful and are being restricted. Diligent pausing halfway brings good fortune. Completion brings misfortune. It furthers to see the great man. It does not further to cross the great water.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
