Sequence of the Gua
Those who are exhausted from above are sure to return back to the lower. Thus, after Exhausting, Replenishing follows.
Commentary on the Symbol
Water over Wood. An image of Replenishing. In correspondence with this, the superior person encourages the people at their work and urges them to help one another.
Replenishing. The site of a village may be moved, not the well. Neither loses nor gains. Coming and going, drawing,drawing. Nearly out of the well, break one’s bucket—misfortune.
Commentary on the Decision
Penetrating into the water and bringing the water up. It indicates a well. The well supplies replenishment but is never exhausted.
The site of a village may be moved, not the well, because the solids are in the central position.
Nearly out of the well, the achievement has not yet been fulfilled. Break one’s bucket; there is misfortune.
