Yi 1029: 23 Ranch and my S.O.

That was interesting (enough to pursue).

Line 2 One meets the master in the street = no blame. Changes to (21) Biting Through. Life brings us together propitiously to meet those who can teach us something about our own hidden nature. Those who push our buttons the most are often our teachers. Our meetings with these types of teachers are never accidental. This line carries the essence of Kung fu tzu’s comment: “when meeting contention in another, we would do well to examine the self.” The attraction leads one to discover deeper knowledge about the self. In a relationship there can be a deep affinity but not an easy way for it to achieve expression. Allow the situation to teach you what it is attempting to become.

Line 4 Isolated and alone one meets an associate = high risk but no blame. Changes to (41) Decrease. While the situation creates isolation, you find someone in which you share an intimate connection and affinity. The isolation or opposition was necessary to open you to this new connection which can lead to great accomplishment.

Rest and Meditation, among other things

Legge: The sixth line, dynamic, shows its subject devotedly maintaining his restfulness. There will be good fortune.
Wilhelm/Baynes: Noble hearted keeping still. Good fortune.
Blofeld: The highest form of stillness -- good fortune!
Liu: Keeping still with benevolence. Good fortune.
Ritsema/Karcher: Magnanimous Bounding, significant.
Shaughnessy: Thick roots; auspicious.
Cleary (2): Careful stopping is auspicious.
Wu: He rests with honor. Auspicious.
