3. A pine tree grows
Ding G¨, dreamt that a pine tree was growing on his belly :
He discerned the character song:: pine tree, which is composed of three parts;
to the left shÝ : ten and ba - : eight, which gives eighteen,
and to the right, gong official (but also great minister).
Evidently, Ding G¨ worked hard during 18 years to become a minister,
and as he made every effort to become one,
he became one of the three regents of Wu.
When a fortune-teller predicts something feasible such as a marriage, or a journey, people acts in this manner.
