Your question: I Ching Online

The original Richard Wilhelm translation for the hexagram line...

Hexagram 16
Yü - Enthusiasm

yin above: Ch'en / The Arousing, Thunder
yin below: K'un / The Receptive, Earth

The Art of Steven Heyen - Follow the leader


Hexagram Sixteen/Line Three

Six in the third place means:
Enthusiasm that looks upward creates remorse.
Hesitation brings remorse.

This line is the opposite of the preceding one: the latter bespeaks self-reliance, while here there is enthusiastic looking up to a leader. If a man hesitates too long, this also will bring remorse. The right moment for approach must be seized: only then will he do the right thing.
