CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Nine/Line One


Nine at the beginning [yang at bottom] means:
Return to the way.
How could there be blame in this?
Good fortune.

'Enjoy the Time You Have' - 王文華 (Wang Wen-Hua)


It lies in the nature of a strong man to press forward. In so doing he encounters obstructions. Therefore he returns to the way suited to his situation, where he is free to advance or to retreat. In the nature of things this will bring good fortune, for it is wise and reasonable not to try to obtain anything by force.
