Mountain Water
Earth Thunder

The first hexagram #4 breaks down into the upper trigram of Mountain positioned above the lower trigram of Water.

The following changed hexagram, #24, breaks down into a new, changed upper trigram of Earth positioned above a new, changed lower trigram of Thunder.


The starting hexagram #4:
"Youthful Inexperience"

The meaning of hexagram #4

Inexperience is a double edged sword. It leads one to make mistakes, but the mistakes are necessary in order to learn. Do not feign knowledge. Seek out experience and ask what you do not know. Over time, all gaps in knowlege will be filled.


The changing lines between hexagram 4 and hexagram 24

Changing line #1

"Discipline" - Firmness and discipline is vital to development. But remember to remove the shackles of discipline because too much leads to negative developments.

Changing line #2

"Show tolerance to the Fool" - The person who has a strong character exercises patience and resolve in dealing with those who act rashly and stupidly. Act with inner strength, and extreme tolerance and the issues at hand will be resolved. When others act emotionally it will fall to you to keep a cool head.

Changing line #6

"Transgressions do not Further One" - There comes a time when foolishness must be punished or when those who are foolish must be left to their own misery. Remember though, that one's response should be measured, and not the result of emotion. To overreact with a loss of control is to be foolish as well.


The future hexagram #24:
"The Turning Point"

The meaning of hexagram #24

This welcome hexagram signifies a return to walking the proper path. The light has returned and cuts through the darkness. Walk with your head held high, knowing there is fruit to bear in every direction. Like the winter solstice, this is a time of new beginnings and opportunities. It is a time of true health and clarity.
