The changing lines between hexagram 31 and hexagram 22
Changing line #1
"Watching the Walk"- Observing how another individual walks through their life can teach all you need to know about the situation at hand. Watch how others walk, think, behave, breathe, eat. This will help you discern who is, and who is not, a worthy partner.
Changing line #4
"Letting the Heart Influence"- The true and quiet power of one's own inner heart and nature ensures the best influence upon others. Be true, firm and loving in yourself and there will be good fortune.
Changing line #5
"Patting Yourself on the Back"- If we cannot influence ourselves, we cannot produce positive change in others. Growth starts from within. Cheer others on by way of cheering yourself on first. Your attitude toward yourself determines your attitude toward others
Changing line #6
"Being Real"- This is a time when sincerity is extremely powerful. Notice how you talk and how others talk. Always remember that spoken words are potent and influential

The meaning of hexagram #22
Like a sacred fire lighting up the night sky, this hexagram is about the beauty of form - the grace of the material world. When something is pleasing to the eye, it can fuel success and happiness. This is a favorable time to begin something new, alter one's wardrobe or redecorate. Adornment brings confidence and freedom. Enjoy the shifting appearances, but don't over indulge in them or they will distract you from true value.
