I've inquired about what actions I can take to change my social and romantic life which has been much needed isolation alongside unwelcome loneliness. I threw hexagram 42.2>61.

I see 61 in the background, esp line 2 of that hexagram as reflecting the sincerity of my desire for connection with others. I have spent the past 4 years focused on healing emotionally, getting in touch with my authentic self, and releasing relationships built on the emotional fragility of my former self. I feel more in touch with my needs with better emotional and personal boundaries, and I've been cultivating the courage to show up authentically to my life. I'm pleased with how far I've come.

I'm not quite sure what to make of line 2 in hexagram 42. It's not a hexagram or a line I have experience with.

The consensus from experiences posted in WikiWing seem to center around hard won goals. Reaching ones desired goal, but it not being a smooth or easy path. I'm not sure how to take this as advice, other than maybe that I will reach my goal. But what is it saying that I should do? Perhaps nothing, or to continue what I've been doing?

Any help and insight is deeply appreciated.

Really ? That does not sound like 42.2 at all

I don't think 42.2 is about hard won goals, it's a blessing one cannot argue with

'Maybe increased by ten pairs of tortoise-shells.
Nothing can impede or contradict this.
Ever-flowing constancy, good fortune.
The king makes offerings to the supreme good - good fortune.'

Where it says 'nothing can impede or contradict this' the intelligence we call Yi (whose identity people have differing ideas about) is taking pains to stress that this is definite, there's no ifs or buts here. That is because it's a blessing. It could well be an earned one but whether it is or not there is no contradiction to the blessing.

In my experience this has been blessing beyond expectation.

The answer seems to bypass the answer to speak about Increase, a time where one's cup is filled and specifically in line 2 where there is no arguing with this 'if you are going to have something good you will have it' says Yi no arguing.

This implies to me there isn't a specific action you need to take other than to have confidence in fulfillment. Although it does say

'Ever-flowing constancy, good fortune.
The king makes offerings to the supreme good - good fortune.'

This means to go on being true and steady to aims, to go on to be being dedicated to the good and to make connection with/make offerings to the 'supreme good'. I think that is one's connection to God or the universe or however you think of it. It supports your efforts thus far and promises fulfillment.

It isn't an answer to have any sadness about

Hi Electricmind

42.2 connects you to the centre of your inner world. It is the line that connects you most firmly to your inner truth (61). It is a line of deep blessings with potentially earth moving consequences, that will naturally flow out from you to impact your entire world.

Things are on the up for you, although at times the dynamics of the change you undergo and have to live through here may not seem like it to begin with. Long-term the sky is the limit. No, it's more than that....' To Infinity and Beyond'.

... of course other interpretations are available, for you.

Good Luck

Thank you. This is very clarifying. I'd like to hope I have some happy news to share soon as this line seems to promise much good. I'm overdue and very much looking forward to it.

Thank you. The yi can be quite sobering when asking questions of this nature. This gives me hope to know that there are good things associated with this line. I'm open and ready.

Thank your taking the time to offer your interpretation.

You couldn’t have gotten a better line. 42 - expand yourself, your heart, your emotional capacity — bc the blessing are there (42.2) — and all from opening, expanding, and living in your full authenticity (61)
