A man,(say me), fell in love with a woman last year. They had known one another
superficially for some years before a shared romance began to blossom. This blossoming was intense with a real soul connection(circumstances restrained the development of the physical dimension) but was suddenly interrupted when the personal life of the woman (M) fell into crisis involving her ex partner and she left her home with her 2 children to take refuge with friends where she met and formed a relationship with someone she had known.She came to tell me fairly quickly and was clearly torn and remorseful but had chosen to continue the new relationship. Soon after,she left and I did not hear from her until meeting her on the street the other day. She looked subdued and was again apologetic. i told her I had written a letter ( and a poem) after she left but had not known where to send it. I was very proud of the piece of work and have wanted to send it many times (via a woman neighbour of mine who happens to be a work colleague and friend of M.) However each time I consulted the Yi I was discouraged from doing so. Now, after seeing M the other day I again consulted the Yi as follows:

'Is this the right time to send the letter?' Answer # 25 moving lines 1 and 3 and secondary #44. Interesting...
Second question:What will be the likely outcome if i do not send the letter and simply wait? Answer# 36, moving line 3 and secondary hexagram 24.

I should mention that at the start of the year I asked:
' Will M return to me this year bringing happiness ? Answer # 28 moving lines one and two.(Line 2 seemed interesting as M is younger than me).
I also asked : 'Will M return in the first quarter of the year?' Answer #24 moving line 1 and Secondary #2.

I specifically need help on the issue of the letter which I really want to send as it says what I have wanted to say but have not had the chance to do. This is tough!

Hex 25 talks about spontaneity, but it's really important to be free of faults (or to correct faults) when you're being spontaneous because it's so easy to make mistakes in the innocence of spontaneity.

Okay, so the Yi is saying that sending the letter is a spontaneous gesture on your part. Additionally, it says in 25.1 that it's important to be free of entanglement now, and in 25.3 it talks about how one party in this situation is going to lose and how another party gains. From what you said, it sounds like you're the one who lost and the other guy was the one who gained. Finally, Hex 44 talks about contacting a powerful, attractive thing but not uniting with it - in your case, that's the woman you described. So, put it all together, and the Yi seems to be saying something like: "Sending the letter is a spontaneous gesture on your part, but really you should work at staying free of this because it's an entanglement for you, and if you get involved you're just going to lose. Keep your distance from this woman."

This one's easy. Hex 36 means something like 'hiding light' or 'hidden light'. In this situation, the letter is the light and not sending it is 'hiding' it. So in answer to your question about not sending the letter, the Yi has reflected this situation perfectly in Hex 36. Now, the particular aspect of 36 which you drew is 36.3, which talks about getting to the source of a problem and preventing affliction in the process. So, the Yi seems to be saying this: "By not sending the letter, you get to the source of the problem and prevent afflicted states of mind and relationship as a result." In other words, not sending the letter is a good idea. I know you *want* her to read the letter, but just because you *want* it doesn't mean it's good for either you or her. Do you understand how your desires can run counter to your own best interests? Considering that the woman in question decided not to continue the relationship with you, it seems like this is a situation in which your desire for her or connection with her doesn't seem like a very positive thing for you. Unrequited love is a bitch.

I know this is probably not what you want to hear, but it's what I see when I look at what you've presented. Sorry.

"'Is this the right time to send the letter?' Answer # 25 moving lines 1 and 3 and secondary #44."

Hex 25.1 honest loving intentions, all very good, sending a letter for the right reasons.

Hex 25.3 your woman belongs to someone else at the moment, so make sure that she receives the letter and NOT him.

Hex 44 be sincere and send the letter even though the situation is a wee bit dangerous.

"Second question:What will be the likely outcome if i do not send the letter and simply wait? Answer# 36, moving line 3 and secondary hexagram 24."

Badly phrased question, double negative. Stick with the first question only.

Question 1: Send or Not send?

100111 [Hex25]
101000
---------- XOR
001111 [Hex33]

=> Don't send first [001111].
Still your emotion [001].
Apply inner clarity of mind [101].


Question 2: Wait?

101000 [Hex36]
001000
-----------XOR
100000 [Hex24]

=> with inner clarity [HEx36: 101000 - fire beneath earth], one will be presented with a situation. I can't tell what "Hunting in the South" would mean in your case, but you would probably be presented with a situation that prompt you to take action. For the time being, if you are in the North hemisphere, you are not advised to send the letter. Wait for the right moment, probably weeks to come when Spring approaches. Then you may encounter a right moment where you are prompted to take action and it do not have to be sending letter ...

Hexagram 25 with lines 1 and 3 changing leads to 33 like he just said. Seems to be alot of focus on 44 ?

Hi yly2pg1, (couldn't you choose an easier name to write like R2D2 or C3P0 (or 7of9, in case you were a woman) ?? :) )

Now, please spare me the wading thru Chris's ongoing treatise, but does that XORing method comes from him or somebody else? If so, what's the source? Curious.

BTW, I find Chris's XORing with 63 a very interesting perspective.

to send or not to send act 2

Thank you to dobro and all who have responded to my request for reflections on my readings. unfortunately and to my embarrasment I made an error in transcribing from #25 lines 1 and 3 and gave the second hexagram as 44 when ( as detected by one respondent) it should have been 33! Sorry.
The explanations for the error could be a.) Being distracted by the subject matter(Love)
b.) A 'Freudian' slip- is this possible with they Yi? ! (33 and 44 are not light years apart in this context.) c.) A slip of the pen. (Quite a thought that potentially life changing decisions could be made on the basis of such.)
I will continue to digest the responses. What is helpful is the way different analyses shed light from different angles. General consensus seems that for varying reasons the letter should not go, at least yet? Pity, its such a damn fine piece of work too..
if i never saw M again I would want her to read this. I hope you will not think it is simply 'love's blindness' that keeps me hanging in; that's not generally been my way.
There was truly something uncanny about our heart to heart connection last summer, for us both it was as if we had been reunited after a very long time and it still feels as if their is a destiny to fulfill but she seems a strange and unpredictable bird...
I once asked the Yi about this destiny(reading through old notes) and it was not exactly
the most uplifting: #36 line4. Second # 55 (Assuming I haven't screwed it up again..)
PS Can someone help me out on this XOR system?

I refer to my second posting on January 10th headed 'To send or not to send Act two' in which I apologised for the error in my original post on this subject.The 'thread' of my original dilemma seems to have got lost in a discussion about this XOR thing which makes my eyes water. Anyway, at the risk of appearing single issue focussed,can i ask for thoughts on a further reading which I did having written a 'covering letter' to the original. The question remained broadly the same i.e. 'What will be the likely result of sending the (amended) letter? Answer: # 3 Resoving Chaos Line 4 giving #17 Following as second hexagram Please refer to two earlier postings on this thread. I promise not to ponder this indefinitely but it was rather left hanging.( I hope I've typed this in the write place- I'm fairly new to this site. Thanks

Sorry I didn't get back to you before.

Okay, 3.4>17. 3.4 talks about being ready to proceed with finding some sort of connection or alliance (that would be sending the letter, I think), and how if you proceed with this plan you enjoy good fortune and no lack of advantage.

In other words, a good result, I'm thinking lol.
