Dear People,

this is my first post on this forum.

Not every, but many days I ask an hexagram for the day. Today was hex 52, Keeping still.

There is much to say for it in my condition. Firstly it is not very wise to move, speak before you know the situation you are in. Second, my neck hurts (sorry, don't know the english term for it). There are many reasons for that, and I am not going to unveil them now.

Don't even move your toes. First look around in the garden (this forum), then reflect.
Beware of your ambitions, don't get yourself involved in cockfights and ratrace.
But neither suppres your affections or needs, else good things will express through other channels like poison: recognize your hopes and fears.
Because, in the end it can only be your heart that makes the descision, not your hopes not your fears, not your ambitions.
Then, when speech is neccesary, speak.
Taking a deep breath, counting to ten, concentrate on your heart before you move, can save any situation

Some time ago I I wanted to change my social behaviour. I had the feeling my timing in exchanges was very bad. Then I asked the I what to do, came this hex with the first line. Since that time, when in serious situations, I put both my feet firmly on the ground, and when my toes move, itch, I don't move. I wait till they are calm. When doing so I am taken much more serious, my speech is much more self assured, my actions are much more balanced. It took me 30 years to understand that I only needed a very simple action to get rid of that unbalance. :bows:

warm regards to all,

Howdy, Burt. Nicely said and nice website. Your paintings make a distinct impression of the object clearly emerging from the background like the spirit of the object. Love the inks! Really nice work.

The danger is, that we forget about art and only construct parables, that we become wise man in stead of artists. Cleas Oldenburg

Thank you Bruce. Indeed it's easy to become the eternal moralist. You're an artist yourself?

Hallo Frank, nice to hear from you

Burt,

I guess that'd depend on how to define art or artist? I tend to approach life as something always in the process of being co-created, so in that sense I'm a co-artist, I suppose. I also view an artist as someone who is willing to be hated as well as loved, to love what hates and to hate what loves. I've never known art nor artist to be neat and easy to know or understand. It often appears completely contradictory and purely context driven. Sorta like the Yijing.
