The changing lines between hexagram 29 and hexagram 62

Changing line #2

"Rejoice in Small Gains"- This line is a reminder that there is light in the dark. Place attention on the positive, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. Attention on the positive makes it grow stronger.

Changing line #3

"The Power of Waiting"- Stay put. Don't act one way or the other. Herein lies your strength.

Changing line #4

"The Power of Sincerity"- This line is a reminder to keep things simple and pure. With honest intentions, you will see an open window and let more light in to the situation

Changing line #5

"The Path of Least Resistance"- Though there is still danger, all is not lost. Don't make your goals too lofty. Stay with what is most immediate. Find the path with the fewest obstacles and soon the peril will diminish


The future hexagram #62:
"Smallness"

The meaning of hexagram #62

This hexagram signifies the power of incremental movements and simplicity. Challenges can be overcome by paying great attention to the tiniest details. Reach for the stars, but don't fly too high all at once. This is a time to contemplate things at a smaller scale. Too often we forget the smaller things -- the compliment, the friendly action -- these are more important than ever at this time. There is also a warning carried in this hexagram: That a small detail may have been overlooked, or that the greater whole may be affected dramatically by something small and ignored.
