I Ching – Comment on sentence
The great possession: sublime success
The two primordial signs indicate that strength and clarity come together. Great possession is determined by destiny which corresponds to time. How is it possible that the weak line is so powerful that it holds the strong ones in place and possesses them? For his disinterested modesty. It is an auspicious time. Strength on the inside, and clarity and culture on the outside. Strength comes pure and moderate. This brings sublime success and wealth. (One might think that the sign Solidarity, N ° 8, is even more propitious, given that there is a strong that gathers the weak five around itself. Yet the ″ sublime successful ″ sentence, added here, is much more propitious. This comes from the fact that those that the strong sovereign holds together there are only simple subjects, while here they stand at the side of the meek lord as helpers, many strong and capable men.Such people can carry great responsibilities. these are important companies).

I Ching – Single Lines
Analytical description of each individual line
I Ching – First line:
Nine at the beginning means:
No relationship with the harmful, this is not a stain. By remaining aware of the difficulty, One remains unblemished.
Great possession, which is still in its infancy and has not been contested at all, is spotless; since there is not even the opportunity to make mistakes. But there are many difficulties to overcome. Only if one remains conscious of these difficulties will one become truly free from within from any possibility of becoming proud and prodigal, and has generally overcome every stain.
I Ching – Second line:
Nine in the second place means:
A large wagon to load. Let us take something as well. No stains.
A great possession does not consist only in the quantity of goods that are available, but above all in their mobility and possibility of use. Then let them also work for businesses, because you remain free from embarrassments and errors. With the big cart which can be heavily loaded and with which one can go very far, we mean capable helpers who stand by our side and who are equal to their task. Such people – something necessary in important enterprises – can be given great responsibility.
I Ching – Third line:
Nine in the third place means:
A prince makes an offering to the son of heaven. A small man cannot do this.
It is the duty of a magnanimous and liberal man not to consider his possession as his exclusive personal property, but to make it available to the sovereign and, respectively, to generality. Thus he places himself in the right point of view in the face of possession, which can never be lasting as a private possession. A mean man, it is true, is incapable of doing this. To him a great possession redounds to damage because he, instead of sacrificing, wants to keep. (Speaking of possession, the same principle is stated here that the words express: ″ Whoever wants to keep life will lose it; but whoever loses life will keep it ″).
I Ching – Fourth line:
Nine in the fourth place means:
He makes a distinction Between himself and his neighbor. No stains.
A situation is designated between rich and powerful neighbors. This poses a danger. So it is advisable not to look either to the right or to the left, and remain free from envy and not groped to equal others. Thus one remains free from errors (Another version, also generally accepted, would sound: “He does not trust his copy. No stain” This would mean that, by possessing, one keeps oneself free from errors as if one did not possess).
I Ching – Fifth line:
Six in the fifth place means:
He whose truth is affable and yet dignified has health.
The situation is very favorable. Without external constraint, only as a consequence of spontaneous sincerity are men won, so that they too are fond of us in sincere truth. But in the time of great possession, meekness alone is not enough, otherwise shamelessness could slowly arise. This rise of shamelessness must be curbed by dignity, then health is certain.
I Ching – Sixth line:
Nine above means:
From heaven above is blessed, health!
Nothing that is not propitious. In the fullness of possession and power one remains modest and honors the sage who stands outside the end of the world. With this you place yourself under the blessed influence that comes down from heaven and everything ends well. Confucius says of this line: ″ To bless means to help. Heaven helps the devotee, men help the truthful. Whoever walks in truth and is devoted in his thinking and holds up those who are worthy, he is blessed from heaven. He finds health, and there is nothing that is not propitious “.
