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.

"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 #2
"Dropping Remorse"- If something was not meant to last, let it go. Put aside regret and start afresh.
Changing line #5

The meaning of hexagram #49
This hexagram implies a time of great change. It is important to remember that there will be no mistakes made at this time. Change is what happens -- not just what is intended. This is a time of shedding the old and seeing with fresh eyes. A geographic move may be referenced here. This could also be a time of new employment, new understandings or new solutions. You may find yourself undergoing an inner transformation, where you de-throne old attitudes that no longer serve your vision. Let events happen. Change will wash over you like water.
