I Ching Hexagrams: The Gentle

The Gentle – The Penetrating Wind (Sun)

Sun – The Gentle: Soft breeze teaches about giving and acceptance. Its energy works invisibly but it creates something visible. The Wind can only be felt through its impact. This sign suggests waiting for the right time, to wait for being mature enough. At the beginning there won’t be significant results. The energy piled up in ourselves will manifest in thoughts and acts. Since it’s the nature of our thoughts that determines what’s happening with us, mental strength and well-kept virtues are crucial.


I Ching Hexagrams – The Gentle: meaning of the lines

Line 1: Hesitating is not good even if we are prone to. We need a soldier’s attitude. Proceed persistently.

Line 2: Accept help and service. Collect the proper information between the decisions.

Line 3: The line denotes a weak and depending person. He/She can’t decide and stand by. He/she doesn’t trust anyone in this situation and loses the opportunity.

Line 4: We can expect an abundant harvest. Continue with the right actions.

Line 5: Change needs to be implemented gradually. If we want to start something, start it gently. Follow the example of the grass: it rather bends than break.

Line 6: If we express our desires too politely or hesitantly, we lose the opportunity. If we are weak, we’ll also lose what we have already achieved.
