CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Fourteen/Line Two


Nine in the second place means:
A big wagon for loading.
One may undertake something.
No blame.

'A Wagon Passing a Kloof' - Sir John Barrow (1764-1848)


Great possession consists not only in the quantity of goods at one's disposal, but first and foremost, in their mobility and utility, for then they can be used in undertakings, and we remain free of embarrassment and mistakes. The big wagon, which will carry a heavy load and in which one can journey far, means that there are at hand able helpers who give their support and are equal to their task. One can load great responsibility upon such persons, and this is necessary in important undertakings.
