CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Forty-Eight/Line One


Six at the beginning [yin at bottom] means:
One does not drink the mud of the well.
No animals come to an old well.

If a man wanders around in swampy lowlands, his life is submerged in mud. Such a man loses all significance for mankind. He who throws himself away is no longer sought out by others. In the end no one troubles about him any more.
