47. Exhaustion

“When one has something to say, it is not believed.”

Your inner resources are exhausted, through no fault of your own. Let go of trying to force your own solution on the problem. Rest.

………………………………………………………………………………………….

As the future of 64. Before Completion, Exhaustion suggests your efforts will come to naught.

The Book of Changes says: You’re not going to win this one. This is not your fault. You tried your best, and you had the best of intentions, but there is really nothing you can do. Accept, and rest.

This hexagram tends to pop up when the concern they are seeking a reading for is the addiction of a loved one. They have tried “everything” to help, but nothing has worked. They want to know: What can I do?

Receiving Exhaustion is the Yi answering: Nothing. Save yourself.
