Hexagram 57

Xún, the Seal

  The blueprint or the seal that one carries, decides all what one is or does. It penetrates every action like wind or roots can enter anything. It has no name, often its existence is not even known, but it is always there and directs everything one does or thinks. It decides the way one listens or looks to the world.
  The emperor bestowed a seal to those who were able to carry out his ideas, and whom he trusted. The seals one carries inside come from Gods or devils, from parents or heredity, from muses or experiences with nature. Some seals can destroy a life, other seals can influence the world.

Hex.57

Xùn: The character represents a stand (3), with seals on it (1), and a pair of hands (2). The hands are a later addition.  XUN4: humble, yield, mild, submissive, insinuating, resign (like - throne).  More about hex.57and 58, and lines 2 and 6 of 57. 

The trigrams: Wind doubled:
Following winds: seal-assignment.   The noble one conveys mandates and accomplishes affairs.
  Wind is not a one-moment thing, it blows from far away and blows on to other places. Your decisions now will not be for (or from) one moment either.
