Print Archetype Limitations But now more than ever the word about Jesus spread abroad; many crowds would gather to hear him and to be cured of their diseases.
But he would withdraw to deserted places and pray. Everywhere he goes, people need healing, feeding, comforting, loving, caring, and forgiving. But Jesus understands that he must put limitations on what he can do. He frequently goes off alone to meditate, pray, and renew his relationship with God. These are the times when Jesus turns away from ministering to others and toward ministering to his own soul.
Without these times of renewal, Jesus would quickly burn out. Ultimately, it is the limitations Jesus places on his public ministry that make his public ministry possible. The Hexagram This hexagram consists of the lower trigram Wonder, whose image is Lake, and the upper trigram Chaos, whose image is Water. Water is above the lake. If the lake cannot contain the water, the water overflows and causes destruction. If the lake can set boundaries around the water, then the water is contained and supports life.
The difference between destruction and supporting life is determined by the ability of the lake to provide limitations to the water. The Archetype To recognize that sometimes limitations must be placed on things. To be thriftier in the use of resources. To understand that limitations are necessary to preserve resources for the future. To know that even limitations need limitations to prevent limitations from becoming unnecessary burdens.
To recognize the limitations one places on oneself by the choices one makes. To appreciate the sometimes paradoxical relationship between limitations and freedom. Now is that time. Ego tells us that the limitations need to be destroyed.
Wisdom tells us that the limitations are giving us time to rest, reflect, and gather strength. Moving Line in the Second Position Moving Line in the Second Position A moving line in the second position describes the time when action should be taken.
Hesitation is good only up until a point; it gives time for removing obstacles. However, once those obstacles have been removed, further hesitation reduces the possibility of success. Moving Line in the Third Position Moving Line in the Third Position A moving line in the third position warns that one can get lost in the search for gratification.
The need for limitations can be lost, and the need to be grounded in God can be forgotten. When this happens, the line tells us to accept responsibility for our lapses. Moving Line in the Fourth Position Moving Line in the Fourth Position A moving line in the fourth position tells us to differentiate between those limitations that help us conserve strength from those that drain strength.
We will have more success if we go with the flow of natural limitations than if we fight them. It is easier to swim with the current than against it. Moving Line in the Fifth Position Moving Line in the Fifth Position A moving line in the fifth position describes the correct way to impose limitations on others: by first imposing the limitations on ourselves. When a respected person takes on limitations and thereby sets an example, others follow suit.
No force is necessary. If we are overly strict in demanding limitations, people will rebel. Generally, in imposing limitations a middle ground must be sought, not too lenient and not too strict. In those situations in which strictness is required, we are reminded of the advice of the previous line, that the best way to get others to accept limitations is to apply them first of all to oneself.

Our abilities might be limitless, but our capability to multitask and take on extra work has its limits. This is based on all the aspects of life that are constantly calling for our attention. In one single day, we attempt to do many different tasks to feel accomplished. And, also to prepare for the next day of tasks.
