Hexagram 24 Service

Hexagram 24 Relationship extenal trigrams


There is a beautiful and endless plain. This is a quiet, provided with everything necessary, a free life.
The small seeds of the trees have sprouted very deep under the earth. The seeds of changes have sprouted in the inner plane.
Weak sprouts are pressed down by huge earth layer. Changes are under a very big pressure of established foundations and material wealth.
The sprouts strive for light, drawing strength in the barrier and sprout sharply (like a thunder) through the whole vast mass of earth. Developed foundations will not be able to constrain inside seeking to the light, to God.
And soon the endless plain will give way to the powerful trees. There will be no trace of a calm, developed life. Soon, the emotion-filled life will boil.

Hexagram 24. Relationship internal trigrams

Tiny, helpless baby grows in the mother’s stomach. He does not know what he will need in the next minute, but the mother knows, and in advance prepares to provide the baby with everything necessary for growth and development. Changes will be completely safe and in advance provided with everything necessary. You still do not know what you might need tomorrow but this is already available. Everything you need will come from a subtle plan.
The baby was provided with everything necessary yesterday, he has everything that he needs now, he will have everything he needs tomorrow. It was so, so it is and so it will be! This is an absolute safety and total supplying all needed for vital activity from a subtle plan.


In the manifested reality, the emerging changes destroy the established safe life. It is neglecting to one’s material situation for the sake of intellectual growth, for the sake of seeking to God. The weak sprouts of the new needs support very much because it needs to overcome a huge thickness of established foundations. Such support is displayed maximally on a subtle level. In spite of everything, the mother Earth supplies an explosion development of changes. A God, as a mother, cares about who took the path of seeking light, the path of the SERVICE and neglected one’s established calm life.

It is recommended to pay the maximum of attention to the questions concerning very big groups of people and even all mankind as a whole. To concentrate adversely on self or on one’s family. In this plan, even personal problems will be resolved through SERVICE to general blessing.

Multidimensionality (opposite vibration)

Hexagram 24 opposite vibration ACQUISITIVENESS

ACQUISITIVENESS is the pursuit of material goods at the expense of spiritual values. Material goods in the modern world are very often identified with happiness. Is there anyone whom it brought happiness? And often quite the opposite: excess material wealth is an insurmountable obstacle to a happy life. After comprehension of this fact seeking to SERVICE becomes stronger. So ACQUISITIVENESS generates SERVICE. Life is a game full of many dangerous situations. SERVICE, as a total failure of its own safety, strengthens and sharpens dangerous situations. A person is usually afraid of death and always cares about the safety of his family. SERVICE reinforces the dangerous, thereby initiating ACQUISITIVENESS.
