CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Forty-Two/Line One


Nine at the beginning [yang at bottom] means:
It furthers one to accomplish great deeds.
Supreme good fortune. No blame.

Selfless


If great help comes to a man from on high, this increased strength must be used to achieve something great for which he might otherwise never have found energy, or readiness to take responsibility. Great good fortune is produced by selflessness, and in bringing about great good fortune, he remains free of reproach.
