Break-through (43) signifies determination: the strong turns decisively against the weak.
The lake has risen up to heaven: the image of break-through. Thus the superior man donates precious wealth downwards and refrains from dwelling upon his virtue.
Break-through. The matter must be announced at the king's court with determination. It must be announced truthfully. Danger! One must notify one's own town. It does not further to resort to arms. It furthers one to undertake something.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes

Follow the Path of the Dao: A Western Approximation
The interpretations shown above gradually moved away from Eastern concepts. Let us proceed even a little further. In this section I develop a model of interpretation from a Western perspective, more precisely: from the perspective of philosophical anthropology.
A detailed article on the subject can be found here: A Western Approximation
You can help the further development of no2DO by sending me the question you asked the I Ching and its response (the hexagram's name and number). Each hexagram's tendencies open up most clearly when examined in the context of a personal situation.
