CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Twenty-Seven/Line Five


Six in the fifth place means:
Turning away from the path.
To remain persevering brings good fortune.
One should not cross the great water.

'Fishing Boat' - Tom Anderson


A man may be conscious of a deficiency in himself. He should be undertaking the nourishment of the people, but he has not the strength to do it. Thus he must turn from his accustomed path and beg counsel and help from a man who is spiritually his superior but undistinguished outwardly. If he maintains this attitude of mind perseveringly, success and good fortune are his. But he must remain aware of his dependence. He must not put his own person forward nor attempt great labours, such as crossing the great water.
