Changing line #4
"The Dragon Soars up from the Depths" - Choices are at hand that will have profound effects on future direction. Remember that neither choice is right or wrong. They are simply reflections of your true self. Reflect not on the question, but on the path to which you belong.

The meaning of hexagram #53
Like a young sapling slowly reaching toward the sky, this hexagram portends an incremental process toward new achievements. This is a time to put all your energy and attention directly on the step you are currently on. Too frequently we focus on the final destination without focusing on all the fascinating destinations along the way. Let each step be its own adventure and it's own goal. Now is the time to focus on today. Tomorrow will still come.
