The Sage's journey through the Abysses


The Sage in the Abysses of the Penumbras

The phantoms and illusions tempt the Wiseman Wanderer, but he keeps his integrity anchored in the clarity of his feelings.
Even so, the Wisemen are tempted by the god's of illusion. When this happens, they, the Wisemen, turn to their hearts and from there take the understanding to their minds.

A lot of times we think we see a problem clearly, but at the same time feel "something is wrong"; the latter feeling could be real, but how do we know? This hexagram tells us of he who is unable to act, and before whom the paths appear confusedly.

In these cases, it is advisable to wait for more light while maintaining internal stability.
Learning to listen to the voice of your heart is one of the most important things. The Wiseman is just that not because of his knowledge but because of his internal and external depth of perception.

Keys: One must always listen to one's heart, and when confusion is added to other critical conditions, this becomes a priority. I Ching's Glossary Hexagrams
