Maybe you guys can help me see what the yi is trying to get at here.

There is an old acquaintance of mine (15 yrs), who I admit I have been a little ga-ga over from the beginning. I have seen him go through two major relationships of many years. Now that he is single again, more or less, I find myself thinking about him a lot. I have even moved to a place closer to where he lives. I didn't really realize it at the time, but I guess it was because I want to be able to see him.
We met up last weekend, then went to a party together. Pretty cool and platonic. We are meeting again next weekend. Oh my god, I am trying to be relaxed and normal about this, but am I setting myself up for disappointment? :confused:

So I asked the wise and all knowing yijing:

What's up with it? 2.4-->6
tied up sack.. either the yi's not telling or... maybe he is holding back?


What does he think of me? 11.6-->26
interesting. I guess, um, either he's not interested or... he's interested?
:brickwall: breaking walls.. getting to know me? Or not even bothering...


What should I do? 5.3,4-->58
great. I should be prepared to have a positive attitutude I guess? This hex seems to be saying I should do nothing. Nothing I can do? pointless...


What's the potentional in this? (I mean is there a point?) 61.5-->41
Developing trust? Yes, I guess this could be something worth all this energy I'm putting into it... ?:rolleyes:


Comments please!! I am unable to remain neutral when reading these, and 5.3,4 is really not encouraging, no matter how much I wish it was.

Thanks

Well you said IT instead of Him, so IT is probably the situation. It's one of those situations where the person is not ready to get involved in any relations... I've had that come up with me. The girl was quite literally a tied up sack... was friendly but distant and unable to come closer. She had allot of issues in her life, so that may be the same with ur guy.

What does he think?

11.6 has always been a difficult one for me. I don't see how it could be bad. It's 11 for one thing... and it's a top line which changes to 26 for another... I'd say he likes you but is restraining himself: 26. Probably wants to have sex with you but doesn't feel capable right now.

What should you do?

5 is about waiting in a good mood despite circumstances that are not our favorite. It's about learning inner strength and patience. The key to this is to not allow any negative moods or outlooks. Whatever you can do to affect that will bring you the connection (58) that your looking for. Key is being cherry. Not pretentiously cheery, but truly strong in yourself and confident and therefore at ease and in good spirits.

61.5 -> 41 As potential.

I'd say pretty good but again says you need to be in good spirits and have inner strength and wait until that moment comes. If you are the female... you (and sorry if this offends you) need to be on the receptive side, and wait for his initiative, but you need to be in good spirits and what not. This is also shown in 41. Which advises you reduce the lower aspects of the psyche for the benefit of the higher aspects. Restraining your instincts in gentleness.

Yeah thanks, that pretty much nailed it. I spent some time with him yesterday, we had a platonically great time. Played music for almost 7 hours together and laughed a lot, but he is still in love with his ex.
Maybe I'm just not enough to shake him out of his entanglement with her. It will definitely involve some patience in any matter, with no promise of anything. So sad.

Don't know if I have the endurance for such a thing. (I think I should move back to the city and start dating.)
Final comments about it(him and I) from the yi to me...

35.1-->21

ha! how cute. It seems like the yi is trying to encourage me not to give up, doesn't it?
god.. biting through though.. err...:footinmouth:

2.4 goes to 16, ... not 6

Tied up in a bag.
No mistake, no praise.

the big emotions of 16 are being contained, later on there may be an opportunity to express these. Sometimes tied up in the bag can mean saving something for another day, cant use it right now sort of thing.

hi kalikari,

I wouldn't worry so much about the heading, it's just a label and it's often quite different from the contents -'don't judge a book by its cover', is that the saying? Anyway, I think what's in it is more important . .

It's the same with the tied-up sack of your 2.4 . . maybe you'd like to be responsive (or peek a look?;) ) to what's going on but you can't fathom it from where you are and that sets you off in making assumptions -one of 16's general meanings. 16 is an interesting hx in that it can be seen as talking partly about divination itself, about following clues to put together a bigger picture, but which also has its pitfalls.

Bradford's key words on 16 I think present a nice collection of both, including terms like enthusiasm, willingness and responsive movement but also complacency and smugness. I don't mean to be rude to you but I would like you to be mindful also of the other side of what you are so enthusiastically speculating on . . of course you might not think there's much reason in doing so, but with 16 I think things can go wildly off the ground.

The 6 typo in my eyes also makes for an interesting accident, since it talks about advocacy, partiality, promoting one side, but also suggests diplomacy, re-consideration and mid-course alterations (courtesy of Bradford's key words again)

The impression I get from all this is that you may be a tad more worked up than what the circumstances indicate or allow, or maybe reading more into what you see. You mention you know this person for some time but not how well you know each other. 2.4 can mean that you just don't know some things -you aren't aware of how things may fit or tie in, or not for that matter) and that's that, meaning it's not advisable to try picking up on them like that . .

As to your 35/21 reading, the traditional view sees 21 as a vigorous, aggressive approach but I tend to disagree -mainly due to my own ideas of course. I sort of see it as being heedful and judicious, not pushing for your satisfaction alone but also respecting his way of going forth, no matter if it suits your desires or not.

hope this helps some!

2.4 -Through caution, there will be no harm.
11.6 - Retreat
5.6 -Waiting in blood.
He possesses truth, which links together.

let's link them together to see the truth: you are waiting in the blood and you need to retreat and no harm will come if you are cautions ... i'd say it's either wrong timing or wrong person

:eek:uch: Okay.
Thanks gato and rodaki,
Bust my bubble. I needed that. I have gotten really wound up and carried away about him and there is actually no ground in reality. How embarrassing, I am such a romantic. The yi has never been too supportive of my romantic fantasies.

Okay he is not available, got it.
Why does this make me crazy?
13 unchanging.
Okay nothing wrong with wanting to build stronger alliances... intimacy is a human need. Feeling connected.


Am I going to find that here in this small community?
17 unchanging....ha.. maybe.. I mean it seems positive. I just got to go with the flow and chill out. No need to run away.


Do you have anymore comments/advice for my romantic heart?
8.3,6-->53
whoaa.. sock it to me. Wrong people I am connecting with. Bad timing.:duh: God maybe I have to be more clear with whom and when I fall in love. Maybe I should get the heck out of this circle of friends?

hi there,

ugghh . . I probably sounded too harsh, didn't I? :bag: . . I was mostly trying to make a point cause you were going on and on about how you weren't enough to 'shake him off his entanglements' or how sad it was that you'd need to be patient and spend time with him with no promise that it seemed to me you were creating all these stories when the facts were much simpler than that . .

I believe in following what feels good to us and I think it was Bradford who said once that 17 is reminiscent of the phrase 'follow your bliss', but you can do so without trying to pigeonhole it too much . . that should help in keeping things true and joyous :)
