Symbols - What does heaven look like

Tong Ren

The gua hexagram as it is in the I Ching








The Chinese Element to which it corresponds



The name of the upper Trigram


The name of the lower Trigram


The description of the symbol as it is given in the I-Ching


Heaven with Fire

An image of seeking harmony

In correspondence with this

The superior person makes classifications of people

According to their natures

And makes distinctions of things

In terms of their categories



This gua covers lovers, beloved friends, any like minded people and alliances .  It also covers how one gains strength via numbers.
