50. Establishing the New, Line 1

A ting with the legs upturned, furthers removal of stagnating stuff.

Turn the ting — the Cauldron — of your Self upside down and get rid of old ideas that are holding you back.

……………………………………………………………………..

Some history first: Traditionally called The Ting, or Cauldron, symbolizes a time with a fundamentally different, and New, way of life.

A ting/cauldron was a bronze vessel used for cooking food at temple banquets. When political control changed hands, the new ruler would often have a new ting cast from bronze, with the title of the new regime on it.

Here in Line 1, the Yi is telling us we need to clean out our current ting, and get rid of ideas that no longer serve us.

What “stagnating stuff” do you need to get rid of?

We have one more changing line, Line 4, to consider.

…………………………………………………….

Tomorrow: Line 4: “The legs of the ting are broken.”
