Great Potential / Creative Energy / Great Power

Stay firmly committed and go forward.

This hexagram gives advice how to deal with creative energy, an accumulation of energy. In the traditional sense, amassing positive energy means gathering personal virtue, material support, information, and knowledge, in the sense not of book knowledge, but of intuition. Thus, this hexagram teaches how to amass positive energy and help people develop collectively in a positive direction. If energy can be properly controlled, then people are united and success is assured.

1. At this point, nonaction is advised. There are certain obstacles in your way that you may ignore. Racing ahead does not bring you benefit. Calm down and wait, the right moment will come soon!

2. Focus on your goal and diligently carry out your daily duties. A big leap is not possible at this moment, thus conserve your vitality for the moment when the energy is ready for progress.

3. The way begins to open for your breakthrough, but you need to harness your talents and avoid rushy, impulsive action. Go forward with prudence and secure your gains.

4. You have used your energy wisely. The obstacles in your way have helped you to activate your resources. You can now reach a breakthrough success if you do not force things. Let life help you and you will be victorious!

5. True leadership is the ability to avoid direct struggle and to recognize the source of the problem instead of focusing on the symptoms. You are guided toward success if you act moderately and prudently.

6. Having acted within the universal moral order and with proper restraint, you can now enjoy the fruits of your actions: you will experience a notable success!
