CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Thirty-Five/Line Two


Six in the second place means:
Progressing, but in sorrow.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
Then one obtains great happiness from one's ancestress.

'Such Sweet, Sweet Sorrow' - Iain Andrews


Progress is halted; an individual is kept from getting in touch with the man in authority with whom he has a connection. When this happens, he must remain persevering, although he is grieved; then with a maternal gentleness the man in question will bestow great happiness upon him. This happiness comes to him - and is well deserved - because in this case mutual attraction does not rest on selfish or partisan motives but on firm and correct principles.
