17 – following

788778Something new is coming to light decisively and powerfully. It will transform the entire situation. However, this new beginning has a price: we must disengage and let go of what is outdated, obsolete, an old pattern – even if it is hard to abandon something that was trusted and familiar for such a long time now. Eventually this image helps: a tree discarding old foliage, getting ready for a new cycle of life, with the old foliage serving as a fertilizer for new growth. We also need this fertilizer which is generated by disengagement: for our own forward bursting growth, which soon will interweave with the world, resonating with it in giving and taking.

28 – preponderance of the great

Scope of Questions

877778
For hexagram 28 – Preponderance of the Great users shared various – in part dramatic – situations with me. What is the common denominator? Eventually, how important it is, in the darkest moment, to be centered, to recollect on oneself: “I, I, all I!”

  • One user asks the I Ching: “Will I meet the man, who I think I can love?”
  • Another user asks: “How will my professional situation evolve?”
  • “Will S. marry me one day?” is yet another user’s question. She knows the much older S. for several years now, the two have talked about marriage and children. However, so far S. made no move to implement anything of it, the two are not even in a relationship. Does S. just make the user wait?
  • For quite some time now another user experiences her marriage as a dead end road; over the years she had a secret lover, a situation which made her suffer. Last year her son was severely injured in an accident, today the spouses together take care for the permanently disabled child. The secret lover has definitively quit. The marriage persists as an empty shell. The user feels stressed and unhappy in the current situation. For three years now, she intensively practices Qigong and Taiji.

43 – break-through

“I, I, all I!” – all one with myself for a moment. All centered, undisturbed by the world’s demands. This is my moment for taking a deep breath. My moment to be just by myself… How does it feel, this, my innermost circle? What hides here, deep within my heart? Secret thoughts? Heartfelt wishes? Desirable objectives, life plans that I usually keep to myself? Continue reading “43 – break-through”

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!”
