24. Return, The Turning Point, Line 2

“Quiet return. Good fortune.”

Return always requires a conscious act of self-correction. Do not let your pride prevent you from getting back on track. Admit your mistake, do what you need to do, then let it go.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Alfred Huang calls this hexagram Turning Back. It’s a Turning Point, yes, but it’s always a Turning Back.

You have separated yourself from others, which you now realize was a mistake. Maybe it’s family or a circle of friends, or you quit your job in a huff.

The Book of Changes says: You will have good fortune if you Turn Back and rejoin your group quietly.

………………….

Tomorrow: Line 3. “Repeated Turning Back. Danger.”
