Hi Clarity Members,

Please guide me in pursuing the mailroom job. -- 7.1.4.5 > 58

I'd like to see what you guys think about this. I have had the same position for about 3 years and in the company they post jobs onto a Portal online so that all of the company can see and bid on jobs. The mailroom job would suit me better as far as utilizing my organization skills. It is pretty much a job that fits the mold of what I am good at, like memorizing peoples names, filing etc. Right now my job is a lot of grunt work and since it is nothing that I am interested in helping out with, the grunting is upsetting.

So the 7 seems to make so much sense for so many reasons.. Organization as an attribute and in a company sense. I was thinking that 7 could be saying that it would be better for the larger picture to pursue this (my skills would benefit the company to make the move). And that I will need to be organized in my preparations. I went through my resume and posted it online, reworked it etc. This is sort of a touchy situation when it comes to my current boss. I haven't quite figured out when to let him know things.

Line 1 - Might be talking about how I know the boss of the mailroom personally because she was my boss 4 years ago. She has a new position as well. She just told me today at lunch that she is posting up the job today or tomorrow and it will be available to all. It's nice that she gaves me the heads up. I think it might be saying to follow in line, be very 'by the book' about things.

Line 4 - Not understanding. The words are jumbling around in my head on this one. But what comes to mind is my current position as a fall back.

Line 5 - Wikiwing says that this line comes up for job interviews! Makes sense to me. This makes me think of all sorts of stuff. This line says 'go for it, don't mess up though, and stay on top'. Am I right to think that I want to be the elder son? There is competition? Someone I work with's girlfriend has asked about the job also. Also, Brad's 7.5 says 'A commission would not be appropriate'. I know this applies very strongly but I just can't seem to see the angle. The job would be around the same pay I believe, just a very different environment.

58 - This says to me, to remain open. So possibly 1) talk to my current boss and let it be known that I am pursuing 2) talk with mailroom boss also. But these things might be out of line with line 1 with following codes. This company is full of codes and conduct.

I just know that I need to be organized, ready and resourceful.

Does it seem this is a good thing to pursue?

My associations to line 7.5 are rather dark and I see danger ahead. I go by the Blofeld translation and commentary on this one: "Wild beasts roam the fields ... Persistence would lead to calamity." The first thing that came to my mind is that things are being stolen out of the mailroom and it's not a good place to be.

The yang pattern is 17 and the yin pattern is 4. I interpret that as meaning that you get along well with your former boss and think it would be okay in general to follow her lead, but there is something hidden here that you don't know. And what we don't know CAN hurt us.

This line has sounded a loud warning that if it were me, I'd take very seriously. The Blofeld says: "To avoid error, speech should be guarded." That's a pretty strong indication that there are people about who cannot be trusted.

Let me correct an error I made in the previous post. The yang pattern is indeed 17, but the yin pattern is 18, Decay or Corruption, not 4. That only adds more weight to the admonitions in line five moving in hexagram 7 about the danger in the situation.

Looking realistically at the situation, I can see all sorts of harmful things that could occur. Mainly dealing with the environment and it being a place that possibly could suck the soul out of someone. Or at least be a heavy/thick environment. Since I read your posts I am seeing the 'opportunity' with a lot less optimism, because I think I had blinders on before. Thanks for helping me. ...

Although I have decided not to pursue the mailroom job, I am still a little curious what 7.4 is talking about. If this were your reading, would you think it was in reference to my current job as a fall back?

You're welcome, AQ.

7.4 is said to be about retreating and halting. Being involved with people in a peaceful way. No big arguments. Nothing comes up that cannot be worked around. It's basically a retreat from discord.
