help with 24:1

Hello,

It's soon time for us to leave our job and for my husband to fly back to NZ - he flies on the 18th Jan & we leave our job on the 14th. I've been invited over to stay with a really good friend in France immediately afterwards as they have rented a place until the 27th. I asked the I Ching about this as I am nervous of getting there as its a 6 hr ferry ride & I get very sea-sick & will be in a state of huge sadness & anxiety having just said goodbye to my husband. He would drop me off before going to the airport.

I understood 24 to be a time of depth, retreat, turning inwards to understand & yet something in all that I read in Hilary's interpretation made me confused about the answer. Wing's interpretation was that there would be regret at having made the decison to go, but it would be beneficial I think he meant, to continue. There would certainly be space to be quiet, retreat - talk & just be - its just the journey I don't think I could handle.

Do you have any thoughts on this? Many thanks, Hebe

"24:1", do you mean 24 changing to 1 (with 5 changing lines) or 24 with 1st line changing to 2?

24.1 is one of those lines IMO you often don't see what it meant till its happened. In general it can mean you've taken a detour into something troubling...but only a little way and you are soon back to your usual self, your usual functioning or your usual meant intention or path.

I've often had it when indisposed for a number of reasons. When I couldn't do something that I'd intended and when asking I'm worried its really thrown a spanner in the works. Worried that missing an opportunity or encountering some hold up or problem means the whole project may be disrupted and so on. In hindsight 24.1 has seemed to say 'don't worry, this is just a minor hiccup...not a big detour, you haven't gone far off course".

So I do feel this is a reassuring answer but I don't see what your specific question was so I'm not sure how you can apply it. It could mean this isn't good idea and you will drop it...but thats just one possibilty

I highlighted the will simply because i also often have noted how often with 24.1 one can drop something, in its beginning stages, that proves to be not as one thought...in which case its a 'return' from not not such a good idea.

So its hard in not knowing the question how to apply the answer.

All I can say is there appears some kind of detour that wouldn't be such a great idea and you return from it with no harm done. Now it can be you drop an idea...or it can be that you drop the afflictions, hindrances, worries that seem to prevent you going ahead.

Having read your previous threads I do sympathise with your situation . Perhaps things will actually feel easier when hes gone as this has been hanging over you so long



BTW would you say there was any faint chance he's bluffing about all this and won't go in the end ? because 24.1 could be referring to that. Its just i have known this to happen as an unconsciously manipulative gesture. With a friend of mine her guy made a big song and dance about how he was going away ..and she was sad for months...and in the end he stayed away 2 nights and came back ! :rolleyes: Not likley i presume since he actually has the tickets to New Zealand but still......

oh yes as Icastes says after my long complex post it could of course just be a simple direct literal answer that its a short trip soon returned from

LOL didn't think of that ! :eek:

Thank you for that - yes, Trojan, it does seem to have been hanging over us for such a long time - but no, not the faintest slightest chance he's bluffing - not only tickets booked, but all the gear bought for the long cycle & his heart set on the soul search. He's certain that it will be best for us both in the long run but still unclear about how it will evolve other than his plan to cycle.

My original question was checking the plan out because of the worry that I could be in such a state of grief at the ferry terminal that the journey might be a huge disaster - especially as I am nervous about a panic attack - which I had i previous months. But having read Hilary's thread and she said to perhaps ask again - I got 45 asking if the trip was a good idea & then I asked specifically about the ferry journey (as I felt this could be such a shock) I actually got 42 with lines 3 and 4 moving to 13 - which bodes well for the companionship and made me also see that the ferry journey could be something of a quest to let go & see the strength that I do have inside me. It felt like this could be a real opportunity to let go of the past on the journey itself when I read the images.

I know it was a run of questions - but I have been keeping a low profile with the I Ching recently in order to avoid any confusion of answers (!) and so I got into a little question run just there.
It's the thought of the trip that makes me full of anxiety about what is the best thing to do - and that could well be what you were referring to Trojan - it could be that I let it all go (the worry) and actually have a restorative time.

And thank you as well Icastes for your affirmative.

Tiziano - NZ is New Zealand - and I am posting from UK. Its been a long drawn out and painful journey of approaching a seperation for an unknown period of time .

Thanks for your responses - it does help me. Heb

Heb,

I know it has been a couple of years since you started this thread, but I am working on understanding 24.1 > 2 and I am wondering if you can let us know what happened with your trip back in 2010? I am thinking that the meaning of this line is quite different depending on the situation. I am thinking it sometimes means "turn back from the idea" and at other times it means that the idea itself is a return to the right path.
