I Ching Hexagrams: The Wanderer

The Wanderer (Lu)

Lu – The Wanderer: The Fire is above the Mountain. The inner trigram shows how Fire aided by the Wind sweeps through the Mountain.  It’s like a rockslide. In such cases no significant interaction is suggested. Life is a journey in which we are not supposed to choose our goals selfishly or by how good they will be financially. If we become introverted our goals won’t manifest for the outer world. Goals concentrated for the outer world could become shallow externals. Life is about keeping our energies in motion; we just can run away to inaction. Life will find is even if we are trying to hide in the Mountain. Our motto should be to let the Mountain’s serenity keep you calm inside and act as active as the Fire dictates.


I Ching Hexagrams – The Wanderer: meaning of the lines

Line 1: This line refers to an accommodation. If the prices of the hotel differ don’t argue on bagatelle things. Just accept that in foreign lands we need to adapt to the traditions of the host.

Line 2: The traveler is safe and has everything necessary.

Line 3: This line denotes an inconsiderate traveler. He/She is a stubborn, self-willed person who isn’t willing to adapt the circumstances of the journey. Such pride always ends up in trouble.

Line 4: Though the traveler finds a temporary shelter, the accommodation is either not safe or disturbing. It’s better getting on.

Line 5: The task is done and all the difficulties are gone. We’ve paid the price and now we get the reward. Although there were some difficulties during the journey we’ve finally reached our goal.
