The abysmal (29) points downwards.
Water flows continuously and reaches its destination: the image of the repeated abysmal. Thus the superior man walks in lasting virtue and practices teaching.
The repeated abysmal. If you are truthful you will have success in your heart, and whatever you do will succeed.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes

Follow the Path of the Dao: A Western Approximation

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.
