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 64
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 #4
"Keeping Trunk Still"- This line is a sign of true progress. You are starting to stand still, symbolically speaking, and soon your mind will know greater quiet and ease. Peace of mind is not a hard job. Effortlessness is the key that unlocks its door
The future hexagram #64:
The meaning of hexagram #64
This hexagram implies that a huge transition is underway; however, it has not been completed yet. Chaos has not yet turned to order. Be patient. Spring time is near and soon new growth will sprout up. For a long time you have sought the end of confusion and a dawn of new clarity. This is your higher purpose, and the way to accomplish this task is to lead yourself out of confusion first. The world is a reflection of your state of mind and understandings. All outer change begins inside you. Oppositional forces stand no chance against those who are secure in their inner purpose. Step forward knowing that everything required for this mission is within you.
