Inner Truth / Insight / Faithfulness

Develop leadership qualities!

This hexagram pictures a bird’s egg as a symbol for the appropriate balance between firmness and flexibility, on one hand, and stillness and action, on the other. This is the basis from which we create faithfulness to influence others. There is no other hexagram in the I Ching that matches the present one as a guideline for responsible leadership.

1. The first impetus for action is inside of us. It is the correctness of alignment with our highest principles. If by contrast you start on the outward level and push relationships forward to achieve your goals, you may bond with the wrong people. Align yourself with your principles and trust your inner guidance, then you are led toward your goal, and the right kind of help for achieving it.

2. You are properly aligned with your highest principles and you are focused upon your goals. You will now attract a positive response from the outside world and can communicate and cooperate with others to achieve your goal. Success is indicated!

3. Your inner poise should never be dependent on others. Joy and self-assurance are inner qualities. If you depend on others for your enjoyments, you are deluded, and there is a certain danger that you lose your way.

4. You should now give priority to higher goals than those that only serve your own purposes. Any sincere attempt to do this will make your advance smoother and eliminate obstacles in your way. When you help the universe to achieve its higher purpose, you are helped in moments when you need support.

5. This is a major position of leadership where inner poise and responsibility go hand in hand. Others will want to be guided by you, thus assume the role of the leader and exercise it dutifully. Success is indicated!

6. Do not aim too high! When your ambitions are not supported by firmness of character and correct principles, you may head into the wrong direction and incur losses or even worse: the loss of your reputation as a leader. In such a situation, turn inward and ask for inner guidance!
