Dreams: rain dance of the soul?

I asked Yi, ‘Why do we dream?’ I had a few reasons for asking: huge curiosity about the answer, of course, and wondering what Yi might say out of all the possible answers I could think of. (‘Processing’ stuff from the day? Receiving messages? Random noise? Ongoing inner work?) Also as a starting point for… Continue Reading

Basic human need Yi answers, part 6: line 4

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series The need Yi answers: 49.1.2.4 to 48

That need Yi answers is for… ‘The Well. Moving the city, not moving the well. Without loss, without gain, They come and go, the well wells. Almost drawn the water, but the rope does not quite reach the water, Or breaking one’s clay jug, Pitfall.’ in the background as underlying reality, and in the foreground… Continue Reading

The basic human need Yi answers, part 5: changing line 2

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series The need Yi answers: 49.1.2.4 to 48

The basic human need Yi answers, part 4: changing line 1

This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series The need Yi answers: 49.1.2.4 to 48

As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I asked Yi what the basic human need is that it answers, and it responded with Hexagram 49, Radical Change, moving at lines 1, 2 and 4 to Hexagram 48, the Well. Here (at last!) are that reading’s moving line texts: ‘Bound with yellow cow-hide.’ ‘Your own day,… Continue Reading

The basic human need Yi answers, part 3: the change

This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series The need Yi answers: 49.1.2.4 to 48

This is a follow-up post from these two, about a reading. (And there will be more to come: a single post covering three lines, change patterns and speculations about trigram changes would have been ridiculously long.) Thought in passing… Talking to people in the comments on those posts about personal and transpersonal qualities of readings…… Continue Reading

The basic human need that Yi answers

This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series The need Yi answers: 49.1.2.4 to 48

I’m not quite sure how long ago I cast this reading. A search at archive.org reveals that I’d already uploaded it to IChingResources by April 2001. So some time before then, I had at least noticed that there were, as I put it, ‘books to be written about this answer’. While the books remain unwritten,… Continue Reading

Yi and times of crisis

I see I have made no posts here for over a month. Eep. Why? Erm, let me give you the short version. My Mum-in-law was admitted to hospital as an emergency (this is not the same admission I wrote about before). That was all very intense and dramatic… and it was not the hard part.… Continue Reading
