Hexagram 58



Expansion, harvest - determination

The great image says:
Interdependent lakes: exchange
The noble one comes together with friends for discussion and rehearsing



day 26 of a yin moon

   Every parent waits for the first smile of the baby. It is the first visible contact. Exchange among people is a matter of vibrations, it is active and emanating from a person.
Being open, toward the inside and toward others, one disperses life-giving vibrations around oneself. Like the earth makes spherics, the vibrations of the planet, an absolute necessity for life.
Who is caught in forms or activities cannot send these vibrations out, but who is open to all the life that comes toward him, can pass them on to all creatures.
People think auras are something weird, but they do not realize how many colors they emanate themselves, from wisdom to anger, and from disgust to love.

Interdependent lakes.
Rice paddies or Wadi's, the perfect place for meeting each other and exchanging.

6 at 3: Expectant exchange, pitfall.
Happiness with a reason is not deep joy. If the reason falls away, the happiness disappears. The only real joy is in the heart, it is the result of inner strength and purity. If you need other people in order to be happy, to be mentally alive, to fill your days, then you do not live yourself.
(Changes to hex.43)


Above 6: Continue exchange.
People move from one action to another. Connections get lost if they do not hold on to them spiritually. Ties which exist only because one meets each other regularly are not essential. The ties which exist deep in the soul are the lasting ones, even when one never meets again.
(Changes to hex.10)

9 at 2: Inspiring confidence in exchanging, auspicious. Regrets go away.
Deep and relaxed exchange makes all heaviness go away. Talking or even only feeling the others presence puts everything in perspective. A shared heavy heart weighs only half as much, a shared happy one is twice as happy.  
(Changes to hex.17)

9 at 5: To inspire confidence in stripping is dangerous.
Rein in your tongue and keep your cards close to your chest if necessary. Exchange does not mean to expose oneself. Exchange with pleasure but make sure it stays pleasure
and cannot become war or conquest.
(Changes to hex.54)
Initial 9 : Harmonious exchange, auspicious.
Inner contentment, not needing anything from outside, is the base of freedom. You find your power within yourself. Making a true and good contact with others is only possible when this inner freedom exists.
(Changes to hex.47)

9 at 4: Discussing exchange, not yet tranquil. Protection against affliction brings mutual joy. 
Talking turns very easily into a discussion. Stay calm and relaxed. Don't expect to be put in the right, agreeing is not necessary for a good contact. One can like a person without liking his convictions. Stay curious and positive towards ideas different from your own. 
(Changes to hex.60)
