CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Forty-One/Line Four


Six in the fourth place means:
If a man decreases his faults,
It makes the other hasten to come and rejoice.

'Rejoice' - Daphne Stammer


A man's faults often prevent even well-disposed people from coming closer to him. His faults are sometimes reinforced by the environment in which he lives. But if in humility he can bring himself to the point of giving them up, he frees his well-disposed friends from an inner pressure and causes them to approach the more quickly, and there is mutual joy.
