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 59
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 #3
"Keeping Hips Still"- Real stillness of mind and emotions cannot be forced. It must be allowed and eased into. "Keeping hips still" refers to an artificial or awkward sense of stillness. This is not living in freedom. The wise person embraces stillness of mind without ever needing to force it. Pure intention of it is enough to induce it.
Changing line #5
"Keeping Mouth Shut"- Less talking, quietness and silence are your best allies at this time. Employ them to help promote your peace of mind.
The future hexagram #59:
The meaning of hexagram #59
This powerful hexagram indicates a dispersal of people and ideas. In the same way that wind skims across a watery surface, sending thousands of ripples in its path, this hexagram signifies a time of many small changes. Old partnerships dissolve, friends move or money seems to get away from you for a time. Don't be concerned. The wise person knows that a period of dispersion inevitably gives rise to the return of another cycle of positive growth. This hexagram may also reference friends or family who move away.
