Hexagram

25. Wu Wang - Innocence (The Unexpected)

Ch'ien The creative, Heaven
ChĂȘn The arousing, Thunder

The Judgement

INNOCENCE. Supreme success.
Perseverance furthers.
If someone is not as he should be,
He has misfortune,
And it does not further him
To undertake anything.

The Image

Under heaven thunder rolls:
All things attain the natural state of innocence.
Thus the kings of old,
Rich in virtue, and in harmony with the time,
Fostered and nourished all beings.
