CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Sixty/Line Three


Six in the third place means:
He who knows no limitation
Will have cause to lament.
No blame.

If an individual is bent only on pleasures and enjoyment, it is easy for him to lose his sense of the limits that are necessary. If he gives himself over to extravagance, he will have to suffer the consequences, with accompanying regret. He must not seek to lay the blame on others. Only when we realise that our mistakes are of our own making will such disagreeable experiences free us of errors.
