Hexagram 15
Qin, balance
Gua Poem:
Balance, expansion. A noble one brings to completion.
The great image says: In the center of the earth is a mountain:

6 at 2: Expressing balance. Determination auspicious (../origins/goodbad.htm#Ji:
The best way to work together is to express oneself in a true way, free from any false
notes like pride, false sentimentality, hypocrisy. True to one's own nature. Everybody
will listen to inner value without pretensions. If you need a partner, search for one like

Initial 6: A noble one with very compatible balance. Benefit of crossing the great
river. Auspicious (../origins/goodbad.htm#Ji: auspicious).
Words are stronger than weapons if one seeks freedom and peace. Granting everyone
his own life and honor means one's own life and honor will not be attacked. And the
best remedy against war? trading and exchanging goods and sports.
