Hexagram Forty-Six/Line Two


Nine in the second place means:
If one is sincere,

But as he is upright in character, he meets with response, and his lack of outward form does no harm. Here uprightness is the outcome of sound qualities of character, whereas in the corresponding line of the preceding hexagram 45 it is the result of innate humility.
