CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Twenty/Line Six


Nine at the top means:
Contemplation of his life.
The superior man is without blame.

'Life of Contemplation' - Wei Ying Wu


While the preceding line represents a man who contemplates himself, here in the highest place everything that is personal, related to the ego, is excluded. The picture is that of a sage who stands outside the affairs of the world. Liberated from his ego, he contemplates the laws of life and so realizes that knowing how to become free of blame is the highest good.
