I Ching – General Description
Above is Kkienn, the sky, below Cenn, the motion. The lower sign Cenn is determined by the strong line it has received from above, from heaven. Therefore, if motion follows the law of heaven, man is innocent and without falsehood. This is the straightforward, natural disposition, not clouded by reflection or ulterior motives. Where intention is felt, nature’s bluntness and innocence are lost. Nature without directives of the spirit is not true nature but degenerate nature. Starting from the idea of the natural, the formation of thought partly goes even further, so that the sign also includes the idea of the involuntary, the unexpected.
I Ching – Comment on sentence
Innocence. Sublime success. Auspicious is perseverance. If someone is not righteous he has misfortune, And it is not propitious to undertake anything.
Man has received his originally good nature from heaven, so that it can guide him in every movement. Abandoning himself to this divine influence that is in him, man acquires a genuine innocence, which, without hidden aims of compensation and advantage, certainly acts rightly with instinctive security. This instinctive security is a sublime successful work and is propitious through perseverance. But not everything is instinctive nature in this higher meaning of the word, but only what is right, what coincides with the will of heaven. Without this righteousness an instinctive way of acting, without reflecting, produces nothing but misfortune. Master Kung says: ″ Who deviates from innocence where does it go? Heaven’s will and prosperity do not accompany his acts ″.
I Ching – Image
Under the sky thunder passes: All things acquire the natural state of innocence. Thus the ancient kings nurtured and nurtured, Rich in virtue and in harmony with time, all beings.
When the thunder – the life force – in spring begins to stir again under the sky, everything germinates and grows, and all creatures attain the infantile innocence of the original nature of the creative nature. This is also how the good sovereigns of men act: with the interior richness of their nature they look after every life and every civilization and do everything necessary for their care at the right time.

I Ching – First line:
Nine at the beginning means:
Innocent Way Brings Health!
The first spontaneous movements of the heart are always good so that you can follow them confidently and be sure that you are lucky and that you will reach your goal.
I Ching – Second line:
Six in the second place means: If when plowing you do not think about the harvest and weeding, not the use of the field; Then it is propitious to undertake something.
You have to do every job for the sake of the job itself as time and place require it, and not look towards the result; then we succeed and what we undertake succeeds.
I Ching – Third line:
Six in the third place means:
Unfortunate through no fault of his own: The cow tethered by someone to the fence It is the traveler’s gain, the bourgeois’s loss.
Sometimes a no-fault misfortune occurs, caused by someone else, about the same as when a man passes by on the street and is followed by a cow secured to the fence. Its gain is the owner’s loss. In all actions, even the most innocent, one must act according to the right moment, otherwise one is struck by an unexpected misfortune.
I Ching – Fourth line:
Nine in the fourth place means: He
who is able to be persevering remains without blemish.
What truly belongs to us cannot be lost, even if it is thrown away. There is no need to worry about it. You just have to think about staying true to your nature without listening to others.
I Ching – Fifth line:
Nine in the fifth place means:
In sickness without guilt, do not use drugs: it will heal well by itself.
If an unexpected evil occurs from the outside, which is in contrast with the true nature of the victim and does not find its point of attack in it, one must not use external means to eliminate it, but let nature calmly act as a yes, then it gets better on its own.
I Ching – Sixth line:
Nine above means:
Acting innocent brings misfortune. Nothing is propitious.
When you find yourself in a situation where progress no longer corresponds to time, it is advisable to wait quietly and without hidden thoughts. If one acts without thinking to advance contrary to fate, no result will be achieved.
