Hey all! :) Thanks for reading.

I'm starting to believe that sometimes yi goes over the question asked and is commenting on what we should be focusing on within ourselves at the moment. Anyone else feel that way sometimes??

I'm convinced of it today, especially with this casting, as I asked this morning for my usual 'daily hex', just something to focus on during the day, to ruminate around. I find it helps me figure out this book a little more, and hopefully myself, and i like to notice correlates with events during the day.

So I cast 41>24 this morning, and just now, in response to a question about a situation with a guy. I initially received hex 8.

Because it was 8, I asked again. But not the usual way I ask when I get 8. I asked, 'Do i possess those qualities mentioned in hex 8?'

41>24.

so obviously this is a big life lesson i need to figure out, not just in relation to a specific relationship, but maybe to all?

Line 2:
''Continuance in the way brings good fortune
but to attempt to advance brings misfortune.
Not decrease but increase.''


so by somehow decreasing my intention/desire/ego (?) but continuing on my way will increase the other/s??

line 4:
Increase that does not diminish others.
No error.
Continuance in the way brings good fortune.
Having a direction is beneficial.
He has followers but no home.


He has followers but no home really gets me. It feels like something bad? like you find people because your genuinely not trying to wheel and deal, your genuinely not just looking for your own personal desirous outcome, that somehow you have support? but you dont have a home? that don't sound too great...

24, restarting, returning, go back to the beginning, go back to yourself.

I dont know what i have to decrease. Do i need to decrease my desire?

What if i asked yi 'what do i need to decrease?' do you think thats a good question?

I'm confounded. and i never use that word. so i must really be. :D

Thank you all,

Yx

41 is about restraint, as you already know
41.2 don't throw yourself away, because in doing so, you are not doing the potential you two may have any favors.
41.4 "A man's faults often prevent even well-disposed people from coming closer
to him. His faults are sometimes reinforced by the environment in which he
lives." - makes me think, also because you got 24 as a related hex that you need to work on yourself a little more before focusing on this guy again. When you do that, then the line continues to say: "But if in humility he can bring himself to the point of giving them up, he frees his well-disposed friends from an inner pressure and causes them to approach the more quickly, and there is mutual joy."

So basically, you should work on yourself to become a better partner for this guy. Now don't hold me against my own words, I'm not saying this is the right guy, but the lines do seem to suggest that there is potential for some kind of a union.

Never hurts to ask "what do i need to understand about this situation/myself right now" etc. so go for it! :)

thanks khappa,

just to make sure, is that line 4 or 6 your quoting?

dunno if its a typo or not.

always thought 60 was more about restraint myself, consider 41 to be about reducing or making something more potent because of the reduction. 41/42 inverted pair type thing?

thanks,

Hmm, I just noticed that you've written 41.2.6 in the headline and line 4 in your text, so I went with that, but I see now that you were quoting line 6. Sorry about that!

He has followers but no home - well, the whole line is about having wealth that is available for the good of all people, the followers. In this case I understand "home" as a semiotic resource for saying that this wealth is not your private property, as homes often are, but it is really like an open source. So if I were to apply this to a romantic situation, I would say that you ought to persevere in being who you are, surround yourself with people who value you and just because you don't have this relationship, this "home" with this guy doesn't mean that you're not a great person to know :) Does this make any sense, because it seems damn abstract to me as I'm typing this? :)

I hear your point about 60 vs 41. I've always felt that 60 is one of those "just because you can, doesn't mean you should, even if you so terribly want to, because this is ultimately a very limited experience for you" and 41 where for whatever circumstance/time-related reason, you just need to hold back for the time being. But again, much of Yi is all about waiting and waiting and cultivating patience and inner strength.

aw i see what i did! thanks kkappa.

'' I would say that you ought to persevere in being who you are, surround yourself with people who value you and just because you don't have this relationship, this "home" with this guy doesn't mean that you're not a great person to know Does this make any sense, because it seems damn abstract to me as I'm typing this?

ok, yes i do see. kind of ' whatever happens, your giving increase to this situation, and to everyone involved, but that doesnt mean that your going to get what you want' type thing?

hmm..

overall, its fairly positive i suppose. as long as i stop projecting, which i'm tending to do!

Thanks,

For the sake of your peace of mind, I would go with this interpretation for the time being, yes :)

love and light to you!
