$I Ching - Wilhelm - Baynes
I Ching
Wilhelm - Baynes
When the time for action has come, the moment must be quickly seized.
 

1.  Ch'ien / The Creative

The first hexagram is made up of six unbroken lines.  These unbroken lines stand for the primal power, which is light-giving, active, strong, and of the spirit.  The hexagram is consistently strong in character, and since it is without weakness, its essence is power or energy.  Its image is heaven.  Its energy is represented as unrestricted by any fixed conditions in space and is therefore conceived of as motion.  Time is regarded as the basis of this motion.  Thus the hexagram includes also the power of time and the power of persisting in time, that is, duration.

The power represented by the hexagram is to be interpreted in a dual sense - in terms of its action on the universe and of its action on the world of men.  In relation to the universe, the hexagram expresses the strong, creative action of the Deity.  In relation to the human world, it denotes the creative action of the holy man or sage, of the ruler or leader of men, who through his power awakens and develops their higher nature.
