The changing lines between hexagram 34 and hexagram 27
Changing line #2
"Taking a Stand"- You have great power to rise above current challenges. Feel your immense power, but use it wisely and in right measure. Persevere without over-using your power and you will turn failure into success. Access an inner sense of equilibrium so that you may stand strong directly where you are
Changing line #3
"Using Strength Wisely"- Stay mindful of where and how you direct your energy and power. Why exert it against an electrically charged barb-wire fence, when there is no reason to go through it? The wise person withdraws from activities/people that waste their energy.
Changing line #4
"Opened Gates"- There are no obstacles holding you back at this time. Step forward knowing you are on track.
Changing line #6
"Butting Heads"- You are in deadlock. You are either fighting with yourself or with a comrade. There is no winner, no loser, no gain, and no loss. The wise person steps back from the fight and stays put for a time. Current problems will be stopped through acceptance of where you are.
The future hexagram #27:
The meaning of hexagram #27
The image of an open mouth is portrayed by this hexagram. This is a time to nourish one's body, mind and spirit. It is also a time to delight in nourishing others. Remember, giving and receiving are not inherently different. To give is to receive. Feed yourself with good ideas, good actions, good books, good teachers and good people.
