Mountain Water
Lake Lake

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 58

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 #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.

Changing line #5

"Youthful Inexperience Brings Luck" - Beginners luck reminds the wise that wisdom alone is not the path to achieving one's goals. Beginners can often make up for their lack of wisdom with enthusiasm and new ideas. A young person may be surprisingly helpful. Do not be afraid to try new things at this time. A new approach.

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 #58:
"Joyousness"

The meaning of hexagram #58

This hexagram suggests fortunate times ahead. Like water smiling up at the Heavens, expect to feel grateful for the joy of life itself. This is a time when you can easily foster the qualities of unwavering friendliness, peace and loyalty. Only through true joy -- the kind that does not depend on outward circumstances -- will you find success. Focus on the overall joy of your journey despite everyday ups and downs. True joy rests on firmness and strength within. It requires a gentleness and faith. Share wisdom and understanding with your friends. Remember that joy isn't something you find. It's something you create.
