We are always asking questions of Yi, we take great pains to formulate them correctly, fuss over the exact wording and so on, but it occurred to me today that this isn't very mindful of being in the now, so with that in mind (see what I did there). I cleared my mind of everything (apart from the sense of something unidentified that's been around me today) and clicked on the button.
38.2.6 > 51

So, something good happened (will happen) but then I will mess it all up by taking it the wrong way which will lead to a Disaster Darling. Uhm. 38.6 seems to be all about taking care to let other people know what your intentions are or taking care not to see other people as a threat or undesirable when they may in fact be 'near relative'.

This would all be very helpful advice if I had an actual question to be relating it to.. :rofl:

you cleared your mind of everything apart from the sense of something unidentified around you.

were you having an uneasy feeling about someones or something, or feeling a sense of estrangement, threat? IF you were...then the answer makes sense. 51 can be a sense of relief, knowing there is no threat meant in the intentions of others towrds you.

Wasn't "the sense of something unidentified that's been around me today" the question, Will I meet someone new today?

It looks like you've discovered the foundation of a daily practice -- simply taking your daily temperature of what's going on beneath the conscious level. Sometimes such a response leads one to bring to consciousness what is simmering below, or leads to another question that might be more illuminating. The game is one of having received an answer, you must now discover the question. That's living in the Now.

Of 38.2.6 -- I'd look over the highest changing yang in particular: Someone/something who you perceive as an adversary proves to be a valuable friend and ally.

51 Shock is good because it breaks down the rigid walls of expectation. This follows logically from 38.6. When you're untroubled by the thunderbolts crashing around you, you have achieved balance.

I totally get you grace. For me I can see narrow mindedness and it's highest potential of shocking revelations.

Line 2 -- Walking/living/perceiving in a limited scope. Here, even here, we find something that becomes our ruler. Something that has power to compel us into things, and believe in things. But this is a narrow place.

Line 6 -- Isolation. Of course, as a result of holding to and walking in a limited way (perspective, life), there will be opposition, or at least a perceived opposition. But sometimes, like a drug addict pounded by a friend to just stop doing drugs, we find this person evil, but in fact, he/she might know better. This line also describes some form of event that makes us realize things that puts our hearts and minds at rest.

Thank you all for your comments. I'll have to give them all some thought before I can respond properly.

Thank you all again for taking the time to comment. Below are some individual points. I'm grateful to you all for giving me things to mull over. I love thinking. Some people love eating or sex or whatever, me, I just love having a good think :D

you cleared your mind of everything apart from the sense of something unidentified around you.

were you having an uneasy feeling about someones or something, or feeling a sense of estrangement, threat? IF you were...then the answer makes sense. 51 can be a sense of relief, knowing there is no threat meant in the intentions of others towrds you.
hi bamboo, I had been feeling uneasy about someone I'd run into earlier that day. There was a definite sense of estrangement on my part, mostly because I'm never sure where I stand with this person or rather how genuine they are. It could have been about that or it could have been in general about not seeing threats everywhere but trying to see the best in everyone. Thank you.

pocossin, no the casting was made at the end of the day and at that point there was nobody I could have met

elias - thank you, yes, that is the general gist of it, although I am still not sure if the casting applies to a particular person because I am suspicious of everyone :rofl:
I like your thoughts about being balanced amidst the shocks of thunder. The 51 is interesting because I've been getting that and a Tarot card Tower this summer a lot. Like almost the foundation of my relationship to someone will topple over because it was built on a completely false pretenses. Or something like that.

gnar - thanks. You mean, something will shock me so much that I will realise I have been looking at it wrong the whole time? Because that is what I took from the reading. I'm still waiting for that revelation :rolleyes: (PS slightly worried by your drug abuse analogy lol )


sooo - lol! Zen according to Homer. Love it. All minds are dull unless kept sharpened by regular exercise. ;)

Don't your dream? Can't help it, 38.2 "One meets his lord in a narrow street" often suggests to me a friendship or romantic encounter. Anyway, until you clarify "the sense of something unidentified that's been around me today" I'll be sticking with it :)

lol! I do dream! Lots. Can't though help with clarification of the funny feeling because by the morning it was gone. Like it got cleared up overnight. It was odd though, actually now that I think about it. Going to gym yesterday I suddenly had this completely random thought out of nowhere "and now I'm going to meet my future husband' Then I was in the lift with this strange American girl and some Japanese guy and then I run into my friend (who by the way is happily taken) so no husbands to be found anywhere. That really was very odd indeed..

This reading is going around (I had this exact reading earlier this week, and so did someone else I know)...even without a question, H38.6 is about the transformation of vision that changes your fear of harm into a view that can embrace the others as allies, part of your "people" and home.

Don't worry about it. I was merely stating it in a wiki style of saying it. That's how I would read into the reading, if I was in your shoes while doing it. :D

I see it like a scene in a movie or something. Nothing to worry about.

Precisely. Introduction to creative mind usually comes from the unexpected.
In case this also requires an explanation, creative mind is a reference to meeting the master in the alley (Homer) in 38.2, and the unexpected is a reference to 51. 38.6, well, I'll let you figure that out for yourself.

thank you. it's probably just as well to speak to me in Yi baby talk, I am long way away from being able to speak in short hand :D

It's a habit of mine to speak short hand, it's true. What's weirder, I think in short hand too. :D

heh sooo, it's not weird to think in short hand, you only have yourself to understand ;)

speaking of, that's not always easy ahem. Trying to figure out who 'my people' are, I cast 59 unchanging. I've been getting a lot of 'go out and mingle' casts lately so I'm inclined to think this isn't a work on your inner self advice. Wood over water people? People in boats? People in far lands? Who are my people? Are all people my people? Earlier, I was bearing with the uncultivated. This trying to find a place where I fit in and people I fit in with is not easy.

Yes, it is a great answer. But it also seems like a cruel joke. How are you supposed to contemplate with no head? :eek: I kid. It's an example of how a line, typically interpreted as pointing to a deficiency (no head) can be seen as a more complete way of seeing, and how being without personal motive can be wholeness. Kinda fits with Homer's koan.

I don't actually get that. I may argue with myself that I ought to get it but the truth of it is - I don't.

I don't get so many things. Like, for example, why did I have so many boys after me when I was young? I have just been looking through some old photos of me that I unearthed today and for the life of me I cannot see why anyone would think I was cute let alone worth pursuing. (and forgive the humble brag but there was so much pursuing I grew a rather large head along the way). I remember, in high school, there was this girl that was soooo beautiful, she actually took my breath away every time I saw her. She was perfect. Flawless. Model type, you know? Anyway, the boys were after me more. I didn't get it then and I don't get it now. What is wrong with the world?!

Maybe you were more carefree back then Grace? :D Maybe you had this balance of grace and ease of spirit back then. I myself would rather choose a simple woman with a nice fragrant attitude, than a barbie. :)

Oh, and don't forget those passionate stares. hehe

edit:

Or did I misinterpret this line, "Anyway, the boys were after me more. I didn't get it then and I don't get it now"?

In any case, taking from your replies, and you simply being here, you seem to be a very friendly person. Curious, and smart. You seem to show this sort of nurturing, appreciative personality, and someone who might look at a person with genuine interest. You also have this sort of courage and confidence.

If these are true, then that could explain why you are more attractive. You know, not all guys just want a trophy kind of woman who just looks pretty by their side. ;)

Aww thank you. But the point was that this other girl wasn't a barbie at all. She was smart and a hell of a lot nicer than me. And much friendlier. And sweet. And shy.

I was a grumpy terror back in high school. I am talking goth crossed with geek crossed with art freak crossed with banshee. lol However I did always try and see the truth of everyone and be nurturing especially of those who were overlooked or picked on and I was always very brave. So yeah, people are attracted to confidence I guess.

Thank you for your kind words :)
