  1. This is a very important verse I feel. I think it may point to our human wisdom/compassion natures versus our primordial, unruly animal natures. James Legge translates this verse so, “When the intelligent and animal souls are held together in one embrace”. We have no choice but to try to balance these sometimes contradictory, paradoxical natures. It’s the essential struggle of being human within the world. Are we a benefit or a hazard?
