Classical Interpretation

Pushing upward (46) signifies not to come back.

The image

Wood grows within the earth: the image pushing upward. Thus with receptive character the superior man accumulates the small in order to achieve something high and great.

The judgement

Pushing upward has sublime success. One must see the great man. Do not be afraid! Departure toward the south brings good fortune. Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
