Interpreting The I Ching - Hexagram 13 T'ung Jen
Name: T'ung Jen.
Formed By The Trigrams: Heaven over Fire.
General: You can achieve strength in numbers by dispelling mistrust.
Love: To achieve a desired objective you should work together.
Business: Communication with your staff is the key to dispelling misunderstandings.
Personal: Develop community spirit by organizing workshops particularly for projects.
Overview: T'ung Jen relates to organization and fellowship. This hexagram will often appear when it is necessary to organize individuals and/or disorganized groups into an effective and cohesive unit. Although most people can see the advantages of co-operation mistrust will often prevent progress. Suspicion and inwardness undermine community spirit so it is important to be open. Appeal to people's sense of a higher common purpose to overcome minor differences. Once the desired end is achieved the smaller disagreements prevalent in the early stages will be forgotten.
