i dont have cs6 but i did this in cs5.5.. unless something changed between the versions.

so i made some Lines.... AKA open paths... i then made a circle. just like you did

i then selected everything

in the path finder i use the outline button... i then applied a new stroke color and used the hollow arrow to delete all the extra stuff i didn't need. i also switched over to outline mode to make sure i deleted all the extra elements. this should leave you with a set of lines outside the circle that are still open paths.

if you use the lasso tool on the paths you want to keep and then go to selection/ invert and hit delete twice you should have what you want.
