38 – opposition

…and I return to the world: my (re-)birth!

What reactions do I get? What are the environment’s responses? Am I received with with open arms, listened to carefully? Or does nobody really care about what I have to say, preferring the old „me“? And, how do I respond? No, definitely not retelling the old, pleasing stories. But: my true story. Anything else would result in a false life and we know: there is no right life amidst wrongs.

47 – oppression

Scope of Questions

Here some questions and also a very individual interpretation of hexagram 47 – Oppression:

  • “How well developed is my ability to have relationships?”
  • “Why is my own life, my urge for self expression, so massively blocked by external needs this year? How can I resolve the conflict?

When working with hexagram 47 – Oppression the user developed his reading of the hexagram which I reproduce here

  • “My impulse to express myself artistically is absolutely fine. This impulse results in my energy, the outer impulses (= external needs) bring inspiration and enrich my self-expression. They both procedurally belong together; the subjective is fertilized by encounter and vice versa. There is no contradiction, and it will cost no extra energy – as long as I am aware of it!”

Over the past few weeks users have shared three different scenarios with me that the I Ching had all answered with hexagram 64 – before completion. Here a short description of the individual situations:

  • Situation A: A somewhat obscure relationship. The user asked the I Ching what is the best for her to do in the matter.
  • Situation B: To save his marriage user B has radically turned away from a to him very important person. He loves his wife and children. Nevertheless he just cannot get this other woman out of his mind. Continue reading “64 – before completion”
