Mountain Lake

The starting hexagram #32:
"Permanence"

The meaning of hexagram #32

This hexagram points to the importance of stability and constancy. In the same way that thunder and lightning have always been together, the wise person seeks unions that are forever. Keep an optimistic outlook and your friendships/partnerships will endure and succeed. Simultaneously, you must access a sense of stability inside yourself. Like the constellations in the sky, everything in life moves as an integrated whole. Discovering this integration - by which everyone and everything in the Universe are connected -will put you in touch with stability and the power of permanence.


The changing lines between hexagram 32 and hexagram 41

Changing line #1

"Waiting for Maturity"- In order for something to last, it must be nurtured and cultivated. A new endeavor or relationship may not be stable at first. This is OK. Open up gradually to the power of duration.

Changing line #3

"Separating from Moods"- This line is a reminder that moods pass through you, but they are not truly what you are. You live through your moods. There is solace to be found by accessing a sense of permanency deep inside you. The wise person ignores the ups and downs of their moods and seeks to feel and identify with a deeper permanency inside. Genuine stability can be found by trusting the intuitive, quiet voice within your heart

Changing line #4

"Seeking Worthy Support"- There is no sense in looking for permanency from something which does not feed your soul. If a contact or relationship does not support your higher purposes, let it dissolve.

Changing line #6

"Allowing Inner Composure"- When restlessness governs a relationship or partnership, it is unlikely to last. By taking the time to gain inner composure, relationships will flourish and endure


The future hexagram #41:
"Decrease"

The meaning of hexagram #41

Like a wooden foundation that has become weak and flimsy, this hexagram signifies a time of instability. Be careful, this could be a time of decreased prosperity. If handled wisely however, the future may hold a simple redistribution of funds. Simplicity and integrity are the keys here. If you reduce your goals, others will support your efforts. Reducing your immediate expectations may be a necessary step toward your greater dreams and aspirations. This is not a time to panic. It is a time to value simplicity and enjoy the natural world.
