The changing lines between hexagram 31 and hexagram 52

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 future hexagram #52:
"Staying Still"

The meaning of hexagram #52

This hexagram suggests finding stillness and peace amidst chaos and motion. The world is constantly in flux. But this hexagram is asking you to call into question the notion that there needs to be movement at all. Staying still in one's heart can be the ultimate destination. The wise person, who has found stillness of mind and heart, will experience no opposition at this time. This is an opportunity to meditate and gain new awareness. You will soon find that you are able to take a breather from the noise of your mind and your life. Out of deep inner stillness comes powerful action.
