I wait, holding back expression.

5 Comments on I Ching, Hexagram 16, Line One

    oh, I was hoping you would tackle hex 16. Sometimes I despise this hexagram. Other times, it speaks to me deeply. My friend nancy pickard and I often discuss this hexagram when we’re together. It seems like such a mixed bag. Love your illustrations, as always. So spot on.

      Trish – I know what you mean about the hexagram being a mixed bag. However, almost all of them are like that I guess, except for Modesty. Perhaps each hexagram reflects that yin-yang symbol of the interlocking black and white parts where a piece of it’s opposite is contained with in it. Even hexagram 47, Exhaustion – which I hate getting – contains positive aspects.

      Once again, thanks for commenting. It is so nice when people take the trouble to do that.

    Hello Adele, I found you through a Facebook friend, Luis Andrade, and so I scrolled through your marvelous creative work. Congratulations. I call myself a “Womb Poet”, and the I Ching is one of my passions too. Sometimes I do an online reading, such as “The Flames Of Change” > http://youtu.be/CjPMNqfKvAc this is a rather lenghty one, but when I finished it, I noticed that it lasted exactly 22 minutes and 22 seconds (22:22). I found that remarkable, and immediately dived again into the “beauty” of hexagram 22.
    Keep on creating with “Enthusiasm”, I will certainly follow your work!
    Kind regards, Rombout

      Hi Rombout,

      Thank you for your comment and kind words.

      About the number 22 – one of my favorites in the I Ching because it is about art. I think if you had planned on making your video 22:22 you would have had a harder time doing it than how it just happened that way. I will take a look at it, for sure.

      About hexagram 16 – am working on finishing it up and then will put all the work for hexagrams 1 though 16 into a volume one for I Ching Meditations. So stay tuned.
