Dschun [Zhen, difficulty at the beginning] (03) is visible, but has not yet lost its residence.
Clouds and thunder: the image of difficulty at the beginning. Thus the superior man disentangles and arranges in proper order.
Difficulty at the beginning works sublime success. Furthering through perseverance. Nothing should be undertaken. It furthers one to deploy assistants.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.
