The meaning of hexagram #56
This hexagram indicates a journey of discovery. It could be an outer journey to a new place or employment, or may reference a journey of self-discovery. This is a time to be sincere and extremely honest with yourself. What are you really looking for? Where do you think it will be found? Wandering over mountain tops, the wise person sees each step as a gift, and knows that home is always right where one stands. If you feel like staying, stay. If you feel like moving, move. Let your heart be your guide.
The changing lines between hexagram 56 and hexagram 27
Changing line #1
"Ignoring Trivial Concerns"- If you focus on trivial worries as you journey through life, this will lead to misfortune. There is no reason to get defensive at this time. Treat others with respect and they will treat you the same.
Changing line #3
"The Burning Inn"- Extend kindness to strangers on the path. The image of the burning Inn implies you have over-stayed your welcome. Accept this news and move on
Changing line #4
"Visiting a Small Shelter"- This line means to be grateful for even the simplest pleasures in life. Limit your desires to that which you can really use. Travel lightly.

The meaning of hexagram #27
The image of an open mouth is portrayed by this hexagram. This is a time to nourish one's body, mind and spirit. It is also a time to delight in nourishing others. Remember, giving and receiving are not inherently different. To give is to receive. Feed yourself with good ideas, good actions, good books, good teachers and good people.
