Like streams of water flowing together to form a lake, this hexagram symbolizes assembling and uniting. This is a time to focus on teamwork and synergy. Don't attempt to do everything alone.

The meaning of hexagram #25
Your innermost nature is innocent, free from blame and always spiritually worthy. Only the outer persona - the role we play - is subject to blame. Being human, one gets subject to misfortunes. This is a time to be authentically self-forgiving for all that you think you have done wrong. Your deepest and most natural self is not to blame. Suffering comes by not knowing what you are underneath all those layers of personality. Be natural and unpretentious. This hexagram is a reminder that underneath there is innocence.
