Our text today is taken from the Book of Changes which refers often to crossing the great water as here -
64. Wei Chi / Before Completion
above LI THE CLINGING, FLAME
below K'AN THE ABYSMAL, WATER
Six in the third place means:
Before completion, attack brings misfortune.
It furthers one to cross the great water.
