  • Daily reading: 50.4 (Doctors Without Borders calls US bombing of its hospital a war crime)

    Article: http://www.pri.org/stories/2015-10-0...ainst-humanity

    The Yi Jing commented:

    Doctors Without Borders calls US bombing of its hospital a war crime -> 50.4 > 18

    The formation
    50 - Involvement
    One is called upon to serve others.


    4 - One needs to repair because one has broken something.

    In the making
    18 - Disorder
    One needs to abandon their affairs and make themself available to patiently soften their most embarrassing flaws, in order to be able to inspire trust and be engaged by those who can help them.

    My interpretation:

    This appears to be a very clear reading. We can still ask a few follow-up questions:

    Who is called? (50)

    Who is called? -> 60.5 > 19

    The formation
    60 - Limit
    One does not go further.


    5 - One discovers without help a new way to make the necessary, so they are recognized.

    Doctor Without Borders

    In the making
    19 - To accompany
    One calls the youngest so they return.

    To serve who? (50)

    To serve who? -> 29.5 > 7

    The formation
    29 - Depth
    When problems are too difficult, one tries to work around them.


    5 - Before returning to help others, one must take a break and prepare themself to answer to their close ones.

    The wounded

    In the making
    7 - The will
    To solve their problems, one will need discipline and continuity.

    What has been broken? (50.4)

    What has been broken? -> 55.1.2.5.6 > 44

    The formation
    55 - To manage
    One prepares to meet requests. After a study, decisions will be applied and checked. Unreasonable requests will be ignored.


    1 - One checks if it is necessary to renew the preparation.
    2 - Others ask for evidence because one has neglected to bring them, so one hurries to entrust the matter to the most ables.
    5 - One expects verifications before changing their mind.
    6 - One needs preparation to regain their means.

    Healing people

    In the making
    44 - Invitation
    One must not abuse hospitality.

    How can one repair? (50.4)

    How can one repair? -> 30.4 > 22

    The formation
    30 - Lucidity
    Patience will bring success.


    4 - One rushes, but does not have the strength to last.

    By leaving

    In the making
    22 - Reservation
    One shall not move too hastily.

    Who can repair? (50.4)

    Who can repair? -> 41.1.5.6 > 29

    The formation
    41 - Remove
    One loses their support and abandons. Accepting the constraints will arouse sympathy.


    1 - When one compels they must stop.
    5 - One wants to encourage the weakest to return and repair their mistakes.
    6 - Others come to help.

    In the making
    29 - Depth
    When problems are too difficult, one tries to work around them.

    The US

    Who needs to abandon? (18)

    Who needs to abandon? -> 50.2 > 56

    The formation
    50 - Involvement
    One is called upon to serve others.


    2 - One succeeds better than their friends because one has gotten supplies.

    In the making
    56 - Search
    One restores order to find.

    The US or Doctor Without Border? Let's ask another question:

    What kind of supplies? (50.2)

    What kind of supplies? -> 28.3 > 47

    The formation
    28 - Abandonment
    One goes on their own if necessary. Stick to the essential.


    3 - One must preserve the link.

    In the making
    47 - The embarrassment
    Circumstances or appearances play a negative role. Justifying oneself is useless, one will be understood later.

    And we continue to ask:

    What link? (28.3)

    What link? -> 36

    The formation
    36 - Adversity
    One isolates themself to correct the situation.



    Wounding people

    What are the most embarrassing flaws? (18)

    What are the most embarrassing flaws? -> 8

    The formation
    8 - Sharing
    Sharing a common vision. Hesitations can lead to regrets.



    After some pondering the best guess is that it's war. This calls for another question:

    Sharing what? (18)

    Sharing what? -> 37

    The formation
    37 - Relatives
    One nurtures their relationships by maintaining contact.



    Attacks

    So, The US are called to stop the air strikes. The US nurture the war by continuing the air strikes. Here the common vision of the hexagram 8 depicts war. It's a very difficult reading, the difficulty was to guess whether the I Ching was pointing at the US or at Doctors Without Border. The reading 41.1.5.6 shows that the purpose of the air strike was to compel Doctor Without Borders to leave the area.

    This reading appeared to be very clear at the beginning, then became more difficult with the follow-up questions. It can be challenging to ask those questions but in the same time it adds depth to the oracle's insight.
