Hi all,

I am scatty and getting increasingly worse it seems - sometimes to the point of senility!
I guess it comes in part from not being able to fully live in the moment - maybe because invariably, my person is in the moment - won't budge in fact! (lol) and so I doubt it...
My mind projects itself away from me - into the future, with worries to boot. Could also be because I'm not enjoying the job I have at the moment, at all, and am very much up and down at home.

As a result I make mistakes - which then causes further stress (I have read that excess cortisol (from stressful experiences) can make for scatty people and inhibits connecting neurons in the brain...)

I think this also lends to a selfish mode of existence in a way, because I am unable to perform well for others - maybe because I'm too aware of myself and all that, or because I'm just not interested in what I'm doing.

I asked Why am I so scatty?
64.3 > 50

I wasn't sure what to make of this until I read this by Bradford:
'Don't get impatient. Be as practical as you can. Keep the goals in view. Watch out for anything leading to short-sightedness. Think your statements through.'

I do rush about trying to do things but fail to concentrate. I suppose I'm always to eager for the moments to pass these days... :rolleyes:

Do the two hexagrams suggest I need to turn down the temperature - that I am ineffectively pressure cooking my brain? Jumping ahead of myself? How does this reading suggest I can improve my mental faculties??

I also asked how do I better deal with my stress?
(which has been getting harder and harder to manage)
26.2 > 22

I think I'm pretty clear on this - I need to stop letting things de-rail me... and occupy my mind on nice things (go shopping, have a massage, etc - utilize the simple pleasures of life (hex 22) before I fall off the wagon completely...

I'd be really grateful for any help and advice here.
Thanks :)

Oh wow - the Yi really is incredible.
I only just looked at Lise's explanation of line 64.3 after posting the above (usually I'd check first but as I am really worrying about my faculties at the moment...)

6 at 3: Not yet across, setting things right: pitfall. Harvest to wade across the big stream.
You can only cross the next river if the previous one has been mastered, so finish one thing before starting the next. Your mind should be able to focus, if it has to jump to and fro, nothing will be accomplished. And 'things' seem to have a mind of their own, they react to your lack of attention.
(Changes to hex.50)
