Interpretation: T'ung Jen is connected with organization and fellowship. The hexagram will appear when there is a need to organize individuals or disorganized groups into a cohesive and effective unit. Mistrust can prevent the progress, even if people see the advantages of co-operation. Suspicion and inwardness destroy the common spirit, so it is important to be sincere. Call for people's sense of a higher common purpose. Once the desired goal is reached, the smaller disagreements from the early stages will be forgotten.
