The Yijing, or I Ching, is a book of divination originating from the ancient Wu 巫 (Shaman and enlightened beings) of China. The Yijing has been used in China for thousands of years, and is considered to be the root of ancient Chinese science and civilization, and can also be used to gain deep insights into the practice of Chinese medicine, spiritual cultivation, martial arts, and the rhythms of Nature and of our daily lives. It contains three layers of wisdom: Xiang 象 (symbolism), Shu 數 (numerology), and Li 理 (philosophy).
The Yijing - practical wisdom, not just philosophy
In the West, most versions of theYijingonly discuss Li, or philosophy, and offer little in terms of practical application ofYijingwisdom. Traditionally, in order to attain full understanding of this ancient knowledge and develop the skills to apply this wisdom in daily life, we must first master two things*:
1. Shu 數 (Numbers) – The key to the divination method is understanding the transition from a number to a Gua 卦 (trigram or hexagram).
2. Xiang 象 (Symbol) – After we determine the Gua 卦 from the number, we need to understand the symbolic meaning of the Gua 卦 in order to interpret its contextual meaning.
Throughout history, high-levelYijingmasters have regarded the practicalYijinginformation on Xiang and Shu as the secret keys to the mystical gates of the Universe and the human being.
