on that note, i thought i'd share Thoreau's quote from Walden - “And I am sure that I never read any memorable news in a newspaper. If we read of one man robbed, or murdered, or killed by accident, or one house burned, or one vessel wrecked, or one steamboat blown up, or one cow run over on the Western Railroad, or one mad dog killed, or one lot of grasshoppers in the winter, - we need never read of another. One is enough. If you are acquainted with the principle, what do you care for a myriad instances and applications?”

Thank You very much Troj !

Yesterday I received Hex. 49 on a question of importance for me (personally) and I'll quote the Judgement given in Wilhelm/Baynes:

"Revolution. On your own day
You are believed.
Supreme
succes,
Furthering through perseverance.
Remorse disappears.
"
Now, John Minford who got ".... on the right day....." (#) instead of "... your own day...." and advice it to be ".... specifically the day si, sixth day in the series of Twelve Earthly Branches....." which I here will not deny, but yesterday I wondered about this expression "your own day" and today it occured to me (serious) that what is referred to in the Judgement here as well could be my own day, not to say: my birthday. But anyway: about this the future will show when the topic I consulted the I about will "unfold".

The beauty of Yi is that regardless of what other's say it must mean it can talk directly to you in a way no one ever thought of before. If the cast coincides with your birthday and the meaning of 'your own day' hits you as meaning your birthday then that is a valid interpretation IMO.

So this is your day and you are infused with new solar power - what will change in this next year ?
