I Ching Hexagrams – Darkening of the light: meaning of the lines
Line 1: It’s time to leave. Don’t take a favor from everyone, danger is still avoidable. Consider it carefully but quickly.
Line 2: This line is the light of the lower trigram that is covered by the surface. Right now we can’t fight with darkness, we need to flee. Inner darkness is more difficult to recognize, but if we find it, we have to handle it with strength and determination.
Line 3: This line fights with the chief of darkness (evilness). Your only chance to win is by being respectable and cautious. However, if you are respectful, attack without compromise. The fifth and the sixth line become damaged as well.
Line 4: The line is at the brink of full darkness. It still has the opportunity to follow the light, but if it fails, hopeless darkness awaits. Listen to our own inner light.
Line 5: Darkness has arrived. We have no chance to get away from it. Take care of the pureness of our mind and inner light.
Line 6: Strong winds and big storms don’t last forever. Darkness will end, and light will come again.
