    The I Ching or Book of Changes

    Post  mudra on Fri Apr 06, 2012 3:28 pm



    I Ching philosophy: Chinese laws of creativity and wisdom

    The I Ching, or Book of Changes, may be the oldest book of the earth; it is certainly one of our greatest treasures of wisdom. As Confucius said, by following the counsels of the book, and studying it continuously,we can attain creative awareness in every situation.

    The basic component of the I Ching is a three lined symbol called the Trigram. Each of the three lines in a trigram can either be straight or broken. A straight line symbolizes Yang: A broken line stands for Yin.

    Yang ____

    Yin ____ ____

    Yin Meaning much more than just female/male, Yin-Yang are the Chinese terms for the basic polarities of the Universe. Yang is time, light, strong. Yin is space, dark, weak. Yang is the direction upwards, Yin downwards. Yang is the closed circle, Yin is the open angle. Yang is clockwise, Yin counter-clockwise. Yang is hard, resistant and tense, Yin is soft, yielding and relaxed. By the use of the two kinds of lines each trigram also has yin and yang. Eight Yin-Yang combinations are possible with three components. The trigrams thereby depict the eight types of consciousness (actually 7 consciousness + 1 Awareness).

    The Sixty Four Hexagrams

    Study of the trigrams can help you to understand Awareness and your states of consciousness. But the trigrams alone can not help you with existential decisions and choices. This requires the doubling of the trigrams into inner and outer worlds wherein six lines are used to create the Hexagram. The I Ching book is made up of the 64 possible Hexagrams and commentary on each Hexagram.

    The sixty four possible yin-yang combinations on the hexagrams represent the basic situations of creative time.
