Changes

The I Ching: meditating on change.

When I face dilemmas, I will often consult the I Ching.

Trying to get a sense of how my intent accords with the changing flow of the Universe. 

You might enjoy trying this yourself.

I Ching Online - the Online Book of Changes

There are lots of online I Ching sites. Most suck. But I like this site because the interface is easy (”Throw coins virtually”) to ge an instant reading, because the readings are updated and non-cryptic, and because each reading links to the extremely murky Wilhelm translation. 

 

Also this is the only site that understands the precedence of the changing lines in a reading (I’ll discuss that in a second.) The site also retains your readings in the browser history.

What to ask?

After a few tries you’ll probably find that the type of question the I Ching answers best is something like “How does this notion/idea/plan of mine accord with the will of Heaven?” You’re not going to get a helpful answer to “Should I wear the paisley tie or the purple ascot to the party?” But if you ask something like: “Is it a good idea to buy that 1967 Jaguar XKE from my brother-in-law?” the answer the oracle gives may appear very relevant indeed. 

 

Carl Jung and the I Ching.

I’m a big fan of the I Ching, because like Carl Jung, I’m kooky and smart. 

 I first read Jung’s essay on the I Ching in high school, about 200 years ago. In it, he first introduced his concept of Synchronicity. The essay was the introduction to the translation of the I Ching by Richard Wilhelm. He called it the Book of Changes. You can find the full text here
