30. Clarity

“Fire over fire — that which is bright rises twice.”

Your flame burns bright. Cling to what fuels it: your Inner Truth.

………………………………………………………………………………………..

The future of Keeping Still is Clarity. This hexagram has a dual meaning; it means “attachment” as well as “brightness.”

The Book of Changes says: By Keeping Still and focusing on yourself for a time, you will achieve Clarity about who you are and what you are doing.

Your attachment to your Inner Truth will fuel your Clarity.

How the Book of Changes Works

“The way in which the Book of Changes works can best be compared to an electrical circuit reaching into all situations. The circuit only affords the potentiality of lighting; it does not give light. But when contact with a definite situation is established in the questioner, the ‘current’ is activated, and the given situation is illumined.”
