The meaning of hexagram #52
This hexagram suggests finding stillness and peace amidst chaos and motion. The world is constantly in flux. But this hexagram is asking you to call into question the notion that there needs to be movement at all. Staying still in one's heart can be the ultimate destination. The wise person, who has found stillness of mind and heart, will experience no opposition at this time. This is an opportunity to meditate and gain new awareness. You will soon find that you are able to take a breather from the noise of your mind and your life. Out of deep inner stillness comes powerful action.
The changing lines between hexagram 52 and hexagram 46
Changing line #2
"Keeping Calves Still"- This line is a sign that there is not uniform stillness. It is as if you are tripping over yourself in your current situation. You're stopped, but you are not whole-heartedly stopped. Plunge straight into the center of being still! Seek nothing. This will bring your mind to rest.
Changing line #6
"Noble Hearted and Still"- This line signifies attainment of true peace and freedom. The feeling of acceptance and spaciousness around inner thought processes has grown so strong that the heart will open wide, and stillness of mind results.
The future hexagram #46:
The meaning of hexagram #46
This welcome hexagram symbolizes a lasting elevation in status or well being. A raise or promotion is very likely to occur at this time. Endeavors will turn out successfully, fires will be put out and chaos will turn to calmness. However, this is not a time to slack off from responsibility. Take actions deliberately. Place one foot in front of the other with solidity and purpose. Stay focused and conscious. Be like the tree trunk that grows strong and steady towards the sky.
