Scattered / Dispersion / Dissolution

Your ego causes problems with others!

When you hold grudges against others, you ultimately work against your own good. This hexagram teaches that such inharmonious conditions in our inner mind need to be dissolved for establishing inner coherence, and thereby achieve success. If others have hurt you, practice forgiveness until you feel there is no more inner sting to be felt when you think of the person or situation. Through forgiveness inner balance can be restored and the tension thus dissolved.

1. If you are aware of your inner movements and you can feel that you are in an inharmonious mood swing, this is a good thing to happen for you can then correct the condition and seek to build inner coherence once again.

2. When you face an obstacle and practice inner coherence, you will attract the right helpers. Be calm and trust your inner guidance, then the solution will emerge.

3. Sometimes a situation is so complex that you need to put all personal motives behind and care for helping the new condition to emerge, while you may not have a direct material benefit for yourself. Down the road, unselfish actions always improve your karma, especially when you do them joyously and without resentment.

4. Great success is the result of open-mindedness and a caring attitude toward the common good. You can now put your own goals on a line with those of others and thereby achieve a great outcome for all of you!

5. When you see that those around you have limited views, and seek each to cook their own little soup, you can become a leader in the group by giving them a great idea. All great advances in human evolution have been made by new ideas, because they help people overcome their fragmented views and greedy little desires!

6. There is danger in this situation. You may retreat, and you can do it safely by affirming your inner guidance, seeking inner coherence over outer fame.
