A guide to life's turning points. The most popular book of oracular wisdom
in the world for centuries, the I Ching shows how understanding, prosperity,
and peace of mind can be attained through humility, awareness, openness,
balance, and perseverance.
"Beautifuly, fluent, and clear"...
"What does the I Ching Teach Us?
"The I Ching takes a decidedly realistic view of the world. It doesn't
mislead us into thinking that evil -- in ourselves, in others, in the
world at large -- can be eliminated once and for all. It acknowledges
that we all have in our characters both positive and negative elements,
and it teaches us to be led by our superior qualities so that our thoughts
and actions are free of inferior influences. It also teaches us how to
respond to negative influences outside ourselves in order to avoid harm
and maintain our well-being.
"The qualities that the Book of Changes counsels us to embody in
our lives are modesty, awareness, acceptance, adaptability, compassion,
restraint, innocence, perseverance, tolerance, reticence, devotion to
inner truth, patience, openness, detachment, conscientiousness, balance,
and inner independence. The qualities that the I Ching urges us to let
go of are fear, anger, desire, arrogance, aggressiveness, anxiety, harshness,
cunning, goal orientation, and self-indulgence. At this point these are
merely words. It is only when we begin to follow the guidance of the I
Ching that we begin to have an inkling of their true meaning."
