Thread: 14 - "Big having"?

  1. #1

    Default 14 - "Big having"?

    Got 14 unchanging in relation to a question regarding work prospects as it's VERY quiet right now. Slightly worried about paying the bills...

    Just wanted to ask folks about their overall impressions of this hexagram. From what I can gather this doesn't necessarily mean a whole lot of material possession but a state of "presence" or possessing integrity, honour and will that allows you to share and give which then naturally gets your own wheels turning. This means that great resources are present but pride can get in the way if you let it. Or, maybe the IC is saying don't worry it's in the bag. Dunno.

    I've read Brad's work on 14 which is helpful but I feel like I'm missing something.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    General success in whatever the question you asked was about.

    I feel a sense of appreciation, gratitude even, for what you already do have in 14 unchanging might be important to cultivate. I recall often getting 14 unchanging when I really felt I was on the edge financially - hmm well i was so i didn't quite get the wealth angle. With hindsight i can see a panic at depletion attitude didn't help - if I had focused more on what i did have left and utilised that fully in a more creative way that may have helped - but i was very much loss focused at the time. Maybe theres potential you're not seeing at the moment - even though you have it.

    Also, it might be possible that in order to increase in your area of work now you need to spend some money/energy on something that you may feel you can't afford - but its necessary to have a bit of faith in the old 'speculate to accumulate' motto - or something like that - either way I'd take 14 as advising no discouragement

    The 'big having' is always something valuable, in my experience. Sometimes material, but more often not - more often, it's an understanding or orientation or approach to things that is the extremely valuable 'big having'.

    The Yi's so flexible and has such a range of applications for its meanings that it *can* be material. So, in the end, 14 can encompass everything from a ton of money to psycho-spiritual understanding that enables you to let go of the ego and discover a new dimension of yourself. Everything from soup to nuts. Take your pick lol.

    Similar to what Trojan wrote, 14 (especially when unchanging) usually comes up for me when I feel anything but rich. Quite the contrary, I'm usually feeling pretty spent out and hopeless. It reminds me of the wealth I possess already, and to utilize that wealth. Brad's "Big Domain" can also speak to moving focus beyond things and seeing the greater, which is already available.

    But, to support what WF said, 14 also reassures that something great is coming - possibly from working with what you already have.

    Hi topal

    To me 14 is to stay optimistic. 14 tells You, that You are at the moment wasting energy worrying, although You should be 100% focused on work prospects?

    I never found 14 to indicate something great was coming ?

    Careful we don't want to get Topal over excited

    I have. Perhaps not what I would have immediately hoped for or anticipated, but something greater, or perhaps subtler.

    Could do with some excitment now I can tell you! Thank you all for you help, all the responses are very useful indeed - each adding some meaning I hadn't thought of.

    I'd like to think something nice is on the way, but it's probably a safer bet to assume that this is more like another Yi "scolding" in the vein of: "Come on the inner resources are there - change the attitude and things will improve" That kind of thing.

    I wasn't clear on how active or passive I should be. So, I did a second consultation a moment ago as to whether I should really get some gumption into the picture here, you know, become super active in seeking more cash for my work. IC was pretty unequivocal with Hex 62 (as it has been consistently since January) with moving lines 2.4.5 and 6. I see this as saying keep to your routine and allow the inner resources / and change of attitude of 14 to let things happen naturally and don't be too ambitious. This is not a 34 moment it seems. Wonder how long this transition period is going to be...?

    Thanks once again for everyone's input - I think it's more clear to me now.

    Well, one thing's for sure, it would be very welcome however subtle it may be.
