I live with my mom, I am an adult girl, a few days ago she discovered my vice (that of smoking) I know that I am great but she has a very closed mentality on this, and I expected some reaction from her. he didn't say anything to me and didn't even bring up the subject (it makes me very strange) so I asked: why don't you talk about this? hex 12 unchanging. she usually goes out for people who don't talk to each other but she talks to me but not on that subject and I know her and it makes me very strange, maybe the peace that refers to hex 12 and her inner peace?

In 12 heaven goes up and earth comes down, they don't mingle, they are going their separate ways. Rather than confront you she's just going her own way. After all you are an adult presumably so as long as you don't pollute areas she lives it's up to you.

Smoking is a thing of the past surely, why would anyone do that anymore.


I know that I am great


What do you mean ? And why do you say 12 means 'inner peace' ?

Also I think it likely she has known that you smoke for a very long time, one can smell it on people.

If she has known for a long time she's probably just leaving you to it and so not bothering to communicate, 12.

I read on a site that hexagram 12 contains the seed of inner peace for that I thought that despite knowing it keeps its inner peace (and does not tell me anything)

I thought about this hypothesis even before asking iching, but I asked anyway for a confirmation or maybe to understand if I was dwelling on one thing and maybe it was another hypothesis. by this I also meant the phrase "I know I'm great" in the sense that I know I'm an adult but knowing my mother's mentality she wouldn't have cared anyway and would have lectured me despite my age

Aha...to say 'I know I'm great' in English means 'I know I am fantastic/important/wonderful' and no one would ever say that about themselves unless they were joking. 'I am great' does not mean 'I am an adult'.


If you say 'I am great' people will think you are praising yourself and may misunderstand you.

I am an adult girl,


Also sounds very strange for an English reader. You mean 'I am a woman', an 'adult girl' is a woman but no one says 'I am an adult girl'.

Doesn't matter I just thought I better warn you not to say 'I am great' or people will think you are boasting.
