Which automatisms do control me?]

Conflict (06) means: not to love.
Heaven and water go opposite to each other: the image of conflict. Thus in all his trades the superior man considers the beginning.
The conflict. You are truthful and are being restricted. Diligent pausing halfway brings good fortune. Completion brings misfortune. It furthers to see the great man. It does not further to cross the great water.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes

Follow the Path of the Dao: A Western Approximation
The interpretations shown above gradually moved away from Eastern concepts. Let us proceed even a little further. In this section I develop a model of interpretation from a Western perspective, more precisely: from the perspective of philosophical anthropology.
A detailed article on the subject can be found here: A Western Approximation
You can help the further development of no2DO by sending me the question you asked the I Ching and its response (the hexagram's name and number). Each hexagram's tendencies open up most clearly when examined in the context of a personal situation.
