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 30

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 #3

"To Lose Posession of Self" - This line references strength of character and resolve within relationships. One should stay true to one's commitments and not waiver in the face of materialistic opportunity. An unfaithful man or woman may be referenced here.

Changing line #4

"The Foolish Chains of Ignorance" - Ignorance can bind one as tightly as physical chains. Only through knowledge and experience can we achieve true freedom. This line suggests that regrets are on the horizon. A lack of experience causes hardship and mistakes. Sometimes allowing one to make mistakes is the only way to learn.


The future hexagram #30:
"Luminosity"

The meaning of hexagram #30

This hexagram is a sign of good things. The path is clear and success is yours. A sense of inner radiance is the source of this good news. From a bright inner nature stem wondrous outer circumstances in your life. The brightness lights up the night sky like a sacred flame. Stay aware of your purpose. You will make great strides toward your goals. Take new actions. Health and prosperity are indicated here.
