The Image of Mountain Over Water
After discovering my individuality I express myself like a bubbling spring.
I grow and learn in the exuberance of Youthful Folly.
Youth is the fool of innocence.
Life is my teacher, the plan of nature.
When I question the obvious I receive no answers.
My cocoon of youth in metamorphosis then
Explodes in transformation and new awareness.
Six in the First Place
In order to move through the leaves of life,
I abandon my confining egg of protection
As I become serious and disciplined while learning.
Nine in the Second Place
With the strength of youth and little knowledge
I am tolerant to what is hidden and undeveloped.
My true power unfolds into a larger and freer self
After I absorb and transform experience into character.
Nine in the second place changes to hexagram 23.
Six in the Third Place
Traveling along the way I meet another whom I admire.
I am not tempted to lose myself by following a path that is not my own.
Six in the Fourth Place
I am caught in the web of my imagination which entangles and prevents movement.
It is humiliating foolishness to be so trapped when life forces me to struggle alone.
Six in the Fifth Place
I see the mistakes I made in ignorance and seek help
So that I can fly in my own direction.
Nine in the Last Place
It is better to avoid temptations that bring punishment and pain.
