CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Fifty-One/Line Five


Six in the fifth place means:
Shock goes hither and thither.
Danger.
However, nothing at all is lost.
Yet there are things to be done.

This is a case not of a single shock but of repeated shocks with no breathing space between. Nonetheless, the shock causes no loss, because one takes care to stay in the centre of movement and in this way to be spared the fate of being helplessly tossed hither and thither.
