I woke up, thinking whether I should travel 2 hours one way to another office so that I can have a drink with an ex-colleague in the evening.
Logic says no. I decided to consult the I Ching. I can’t remember the original gua. The transformed gua is hexagram 44 Meeting.
My gut says gua 44 isn’t ideal. I don’t like the look of the yin line sneaking up or infiltrating the yang lines. So, I take it that I Ching advised me not to make the trip.
Anyhow, I went with my logic instead, in spite of I Ching.
Guess what. I encountered a very powerful maiden, a woman CFO in the afternoon – actually my entire morning was preoccupied with a question from her. Gua 44 says “Coming to meet. The maiden is powerful. One should not marry such a person.”
Granted I’m not marrying the CFO but I think the message is not to comingle with her, at least for that day. It looks like I Ching has my back after all!
Oh yes, I ended up not going for the drink as I was exhausted even before the day ended.
