yes, it was very much the wiser thing to do at the time, although when he said what he was going to do, I kinda looked at him as if he was mad - it took a lot of calm and intense focus to go thru with it.
Other times I've seen 21 come up had to do with medicine of some kind, which again speaks of having an inner order restored and 21.1 often comes up as an admonition to guard one's self instead of punishing this or other.21 is one of these hexagrams whose meaning is mostly taken as rather unambiguous, so it's intriguing to look into other sides of it

I'm just arrived at work. let me read the thread.
H.21 is a CARNIVORE hex, it speaks of our own tendency to CARNAL EXCESS, and how to manage it. SELFDISCIPLINE is, of course, a GOOD IDEA, how to be tolerant with our own nature without becoming a CANNIBAL.
In H.21 there are more than one dish with different sorts of MEAT (or FLESH!)in lines 2, 3, 4 and 5. The sentence adviced us: PREFERABLE USE A GRILL, maybe don't eat the meat raw, but in barbecue.
H.21: [CRUNCH, CRUNCH!]
BITTING [AND] CRACKING CELEBRATION.
PROFITABLE TO USE [A] JAIL.
Preferable to use a grill.
[No more comments]
If we add the TOE of line 1 and the EAR of line 6, all the lines have MEAT/FLESH.
Fourth lines out of six are NO WRONG. One is LUCKY and one is UNFORTUNATE, although irremediable, fated.
To be continued ...
all the best,
It mostly implies doing what needs to be done.
What is the MAIN CARNIVoRE that in not here?
answer: of course, ourselves!

Some people don't like CANGUES, neither the Changes, I believe.
I don't know why the character JIAO was translated CANGUE, which is JIA.Japanese name: Sekishôgun Sekiyû (石將軍石勇)
Chinese name: Shi Yong
Scene: Sekishôgun Sekiyû throwing a broken cangue (wooden punishment yoke) at foe
Rutt says nothing about it. He only says that HE means to RECEIVE A LOAD.
I wonder why not to translate JIAO as CONJUGAL BURDEN instead of CANGUE, given the associations of JIAO with INTERCOURSE.

I wonder if they have this picture in a life size version?
