CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Twenty-Eight/Line Three


Nine in the third place means:
The ridgepole sags to the breaking point.
Misfortune.

Betty Rowe's watercolor of Birkett's former residence
a clear view of the broken ridgepole


This indicates a type of man who in times of preponderance of the great insists on pushing ahead. He accepts no advice from others, and therefore they in turn are not willing to lend him support. Because of this the burden grows, until the structure of things bends or breaks. Plunging willfully ahead in times of danger only hastens the catastrophe.
