Hexagram Fifty-Eight/Line Three


Six in the third place means:
Coming joyousness. Misfortune.

'The Romans of the Decadence' - Thomas Couture, 1847


True joy must spring from within. But if one is empty within and wholly given over to the world, idle pleasures come streaming in from without. This is what many people welcome as diversion.

Thus they lose themselves more and more, which of course has bad results.
