The Dragon's journey through the Abysses


The Dragon in the Abysses of the Gleam

We see the Wanderer hesitate though the path is clearly visible; his changing emotions immobilize him. Since he is in the middle of the Abysses (obstacles and delays in his actions) there is still some time that he should use to find his interior stability. What is seen with your own eye is what is important. Many times what one discovers is contrary to what one feels in the heart, emotions or previous ideas, but one must abandon any confused feelings or hesitant conduct, and stick to the facts just as they are and move exclusively from there.

Sooner or later, there is a flash of truth on all paths. Many times this view of reality does not coincide with what one hopes or thinks. Still, hesitation is a natural state for those who are disconnected from the truth. Therefore, a sudden revelation almost always collides with a previous doubtful state, and it takes time to assume things. Taking time is of utmost importance and is what this hexagram is all about.

Therefore, take this advice:
stick to what you have seen; abandon all that internally resists that which is evident. At the same time, one must take the time for this reality to settle internally.

Keys: Assume the facts, adapt to reality by immediately changing what one needs to internally change. I Ching's Glossary Hexagrams
