30. Li

The trigram Li means “to cling to something”; “to depend or rest on something.” As Wilhelm/Baynes explains: “Human life on earth is conditioned and unfree, and when man recognizes this limitation and makes himself dependent upon the harmonious and beneficient forces of the cosmos, he achieves success.”
