Kuan -Contemplation: the two upper yang lines symbolize virtue. The sign is similar to a church or an altar where we can do some mental activities. Kuan denotes a lifestyle in which self-improvement and continuous self-study not only help controlling ourselves but they give a hand to develop ourselves. Such self-monitoring can help avoiding external pressure and trouble. This sign, depending on which line we got, can mean the necessity of self-examination. Certain lines show the levels of our alertness.
I Ching Hexagrams – Contemplation: meaning of the lines
Line 1: This line has perspective of a child. As an adult it leads to the indignity of childish view.
Line 2: The line shows a girl peeking from behind a folding screen. Though she is protecting her modesty, this is not the right way to analyze things.
Line 3: Our situation offers a crossroad. Gather all information before making a decision and don’t rush it. Consider it thoroughly, observe a little bit longer.
Line 4: We’ve already reached something. The fourth line can lock back and forward as well. Don’t concentrate only on ourselves, assess our environment as well.
Line 5: Here everyone can observe our situation. Be an example of virtue and honor that is worth to be followed.
Line 6: Although we don’t have strong, direct influence to others we still can be an excellent example. Don’t stop self-education.
