27. Yi/Nourishing
Mountain over Thunder

The great Mencius spoke of nourishment of the spirit, not only of the body.

The image conveys an act of mastication. The implication is that in order to get the nourishment, we have to first break down and digest the food. The raw material must die in order for us to extract its essence for our nourishment. While we give thanks for it, there is no way for us to exist without destroying the food stuff we consume.
