CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Thirty-Two/Line Two


Nine in the second place means:
Remorse disappears.

'Samson and Delilah', ca. 1610 - Peter Paul Rubens (1577 - 1640)
London, National Gallery


The situation is abnormal. A man's force of character is greater than the available material power. Thus he might be afraid of allowing himself to attempt something beyond his strength. However, since it is the time of DURATION, it is possible for him to control his inner strength and so to avoid excess. Cause for remorse then disappears.
