CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Eighteen/Line Three


Nine in the third place means:
Setting right what has been spoiled by the father.
There will be a little remorse. No great blame.

'Writing to Father' - Eastman Johnson 1863 - Boston Museum of Fine Arts


This describes a man who proceeds a little too energetically in righting the mistakes of the past. Now and then, as a result, minor discords and annoyances will surely develop. But too much energy is better than too little. Therefore, although he may at times have some slight cause for regret, he remains free of any serious blame.
