It’s a huge plain under the blue sky. The boundless plain is the prevailing view of the world, where everything is clear, calm and safe.
Very deep under the surface, small seeds of trees grew. Under the yoke of conventional stereotypes, a new awareness has arisen on the inner plane.
The sprouts penetrate through a large mass of soil, which pressed them. A new understanding of reality overcomes all dogmas about what reality should be.
The trees come to the surface. A new awareness begins to manifest itself in the world of events.
Where once there was a boundless plain, tomorrow a mighty forest will rustle in the wind. Rapid growth, emotions, and fuss, caused by a new understanding, will replace the old calm and safe life.

A powerful tree, feeding on underground waters, grows rapidly (like thunder). Very rapid spiritual growth is caused by a premonition of solving the accumulated problems.
The roots of the tree awakened the lake, locked in the bowels of the earth. The deep penetration finds a solution in the depth of one’s own subconscious.
The water of the underground lake rushed to the surface and washed away the tree. Emotions, vanity go to the past, when something from the depths of the subconscious will change the life.
The streams of water will bring to the surface gold ingots from the bowels of the earth. A valuable treasure will illuminate the world with its beautiful radiance.  A new awareness will reveal the treasure from the depths of the subconscious, which will radically change the familiar picture of the world.


In the manifested reality. The boundless plain is the prevailing view of the world, where everything is clear, calm and safe. Sprouts seeking to light are the desire to learn new things. The trees will turn into a mighty forest that will cover the whole vast plain. New awareness will change the current picture of the world beyond recognition. SUBCONSCIOUS.

On a subtle plane. The thunder of emotion subsides in anticipation of the manifestation of treasures. A valuable treasure will be extracted from the depths of the subconscious. This will solve many of the accumulated problems. The golden treasure is the discovery of the existence of SUBCONSCIOUSNESS, which is the hidden cause of most external events.

The hexagram 46 directly speaks about the possibility of merging the two worlds. The inner ascent reaches the highest point (treasures will appear) against a backdrop of serious external problems (the sprouts of trees are suppressed by large masses of the earth).

A decision taken by understanding the situation will not solve the problem, but will only lead to turmoil and emotions (the properties of a tree in the manifested reality). But an intuitive solution will not only solve the situation in the best possible way but will also open up an invaluable treasure. An intuitive solution will reveal valuable gold ingots hidden in the depths of the SUBCONSCIOUS.

This is a unique chance for deep self-awareness!
