no2DO - eine Annäherung aus Westen
Gain strength and let go.
We are rooted
As our strength increases
We can let go.
[We can let go of those parts of our ancestral heritage which, during our journey, we have already fully integrated into our being and therefore do not need any longer.]
Upper Trigram: Gen, Mountain
2nd Core Character: Kun, Earth
1st Core Character: Zhen, Thunder
Lower Trigram: Kan, WaterInformation regarding the interpretation model
Youthful folly (04) means to be first confused and then to become clear.
A source springs up from underneath the mountain: the image of youth. Thus the superior man nourishes his character through thoroughgoing action.
Youthful folly has success. I am not seeing the young fool, the young fool seeks me. At the first oracle, I give advice. If he asks two, three times, then that is annoyance. If he annoys, I give no advice. Perseverance furthers.

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.
