4. Inexperience/Youthful Folly, Line 1

“Restraints should be removed.”

You must combine a disciplined approach to the problem with the freedom to find an answer. Allow yourself to think — and actcreatively.

…………………………………………………………………………………………….

Because you have little experience in the situation that confronts you, you don’t really know what is going to work to resolve it in your favor.

The Book of Changes says: This situation is not that serious. The world will not come to an end if you say or do the “wrong” thing.

Try a new approach, and if that doesn’t work, try another. Have some fun with it.

The Yi has one more changing line of advice for us, Line 4.

How the Book of Changes Works

“The way in which the Book of Changes works can best be compared to an electrical circuit reaching into all situations. The circuit only affords the potentiality of lighting; it does not give light. But when contact with a definite situation is established in the questioner, the ‘current’ is activated, and the given situation is illumined.”
