The I Ching
The I Ching is one of the world’s oldest books. Three thousand years ago, its original purpose was as a diviner’s manual for Bronze Age Chinese kings. That remains a major use of the book in modern times throughout the world. But it is so much more than a mere fortune telling device.
In truth, the I Ching is a book of wisdom which has been infused for centuries with the most profound lessons of Chinese philosophers and scholars. It is the foundation of Confucianism, Taoism, Chinese Medicine, Feng Shui and countless other arts and philosophies.
Its central focus is the recognition that we, human beings, live in a world of constant change, a world where we have little or no control. Its wisdom helps us to understand the laws of change and teaches us how to live in harmony with those laws.
It is a wise and trusted friend who can teaches us how to maintain our principles and integrity in the face of adversity, how to be at peace when the world is in catastrophe and turmoil, how to live a happy life regardless of what fate may bring, and how to structure our conscious choices and behavior to ensure the greatest chance of success on all levels of human experience.
