Progress (35) signifies day.
The sun rises over the earth: the image of progress. Thus the superior man makes his virtues shine brightly.
Progress: The powerful prince is honoured with horses in large quantities. He is invited for audience three times in one day.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
Dynamics of the Hexagram
Lower Trigram: Kun, the Earth
When interpreting a hexagram, Kun points at the place which we are at, here and now. Kun invites us to calm down and to use this place / moment as a source of strength. Like a wave rolling back into the sea, its origin, focusing and drawing new energies. Hide

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.

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.
