The message of the gua is that those above provide benefit to those below. The three lines of the upper gua represent the persons who give, and the three lines of the lower gua represent those who receive. The way to gain relies on doing something substantial. This is why the Decision says, “Favorable to have somewhere to go. Favorable to cross great rivers.” The hosrt of the gua is the solid line at the bottom. It is the principal line of the lower gua, and thus the most appropriate line to be the host.
