Excerpt from
What is the I Ching?

What is the I Ching? And why should you care? The I Ching is an amazing method which invites you to ask any question you want and then applies enduring wisdom to answer your question. You can ask any question that you care about. The I Ching is a powerful and trustworthy guide to explore any part of life that you find difficult or wish to look into more deeply.

This unique book enables you to receive a wise and direct answer to any question, in writing. Carl Jung believed that the I Ching gave voice to the deep wisdom of the unconscious. Use whatever language makes sense to you: Some say the I Ching is a brilliant psychological tool for self awareness, while others
say it gives a voice to our soul so it can speak to us directly.

The good news is that the answers we get from the I Ching are the same ones we would eventually arrive at if we could spend enough time in reflection, meditation, or retreat. It magnifies our own inner truth. An I Ching reading is a little like getting a computer printout from the soul!

The I Ching method originated in ancient China and has survived in active use, by millions of people, for nearly 5,000 years. The key to this form of guidance is that it expresses our own inner wisdom. And the amazing thing is that it really works. And least millions of users are convinced that it does. My own extensive experience has convinced me that it absolutely does work… but the best news… is that you can test this method out in your own life and draw your own conclusions. If you find a fraction of the value I do as I use it each day, you will hang onto this book for a lifetime…

First a quick bio: I earned doctorates in psychology and in social work from the University of Michigan, worked for decades as a psychotherapist, author and educator, and I have also studied for many years with shamans and mystics. I ended up a kind of scientific mystic, making rigorous practical use of essentially spiritual tools like dreams and the I Ching. For the many who know little about
the I Ching, I want to offer a simple, user-friendly intro to this powerful tool that can actually help you improve your life… starting soon. I can assure you, I would hate to do without it. And I bet you will feel the same way before long. A surprising number of the people I have taught this method to over the decades have continued to value it and use it for the rest of their lives. More so than anything else I have ever taught….

This is the most amazing single book I have ever found in a lifelong search. When I imagine being stranded on a desert island, with only one book, this is the one that makes the cut. Partly because it’s so inspiring, partly because it guides and problem solves and actually helps with daily life choices, and because it allows
me to converse with the source of being. I don’t care whether you call our
source God, or Buddha mind, or the Collective Unconscious, or our higher self, or Mother Nature. The I Ching connects us with our source, and it reveals the innermost truths of our heart. As David Whyte says about poetry: It is the art of overhearing yourself say things from which you can never retreat. The I Ching helps us overhear our own interior truths.

The I Ching is like a megaphone for the still small voice within us.


Excerpt from
Jung's Intro to the I Ching

As you consider trying out this unusual method, consider what Carl Jung concluded about it long ago: “Although this procedure is well within the premises of Taoist philosophy, it appears exceedingly odd to us. However, not even the strangeness of insane delusions or of primitive superstition has ever shocked me.
I have always tried to remain unbiased and curious. Why not venture a dialogue with an ancient book that purports to be animated? There can be no harm in it, and the reader may watch a psychological procedure that has been carried out time and again throughout the millennia of Chinese civilization, representing to a Confucius or to a Lao-tse both a supreme expression of spiritual authority and a philosophical enigma.”

Jung was one of the world’s most astute and accomplished psychiatric interviewers; relying upon this strength he chose to publicly interview the I Ching! And interpret its answer like a psychiatrist who was scrutinizing a live person who he was going to introduce to his friends. You could say that Carl Jung gave the I Ching a kind of sanity hearing. In Wilhelm’s intro section you can read about the answer that “Mr I. Ching” gave to Dr Jung, his analyst. It described itself first as being a book with religious significance which contained spiritual nourishment. Then Mr. Ching lamented that its excellent qualities were “unknown and misjudged” and hence a rich potential was going unused. And finally the reading offered the comforting hope that it was about to regain recognition. Jung
playfully wrote “this last (comment) obviously with a sidelong glance at my as yet unwritten forward.”

So Dr. Jung experienced being convincingly informed by the ‘presence’ of the I Ching. He even experienced being playfully teased about getting on with writing the introduction he had promised to Richard Wilhelm. Carl Jung was entering into an actual dialogue with the I Ching and was receiving valid responses from the other party… though it was a book and not a human being at all. Yes, the I Ching was even taunting the good doctor about the forward he had promised… Jung
got the joke and fully appreciated it.

Dr Jung said that the overall answer to his question was perfectly understandable and that the answer both pleased him and satisfied him. In fact, he wrote: “Had
a human being made such replies, I should, as a psychiatrist, have had to pronounce him of sound mind, at least on the basis of the material presented... On the contrary, I should have had to congratulate this hypothetical person on the extent of his insight into myunexpressed state of doubt.” So the master psychiatrist was impressed to the point of congratulations by the power of
insight he found in the I Ching. The stringent test it had just passed was to convince a mature genius that you could accurately read and describe the doctor’s own inner feelings! The I Ching did so then and will do so for you… it knows how to get our attention...


Excerpt from
Resistance and the Teachable Moment

The I Ching can help us to discover our own truth and act on it. But we need to acknowledge that there is something in every human being that seems to resist our own truth and oppose our best intentions. In basic physics we learn that for every action there is… an equal and opposite reaction. If i push a child’s swing forward, it will soon be traveling backward on almost as high an arc. In this world of opposites, something pretty similar happens inside each of us.

Some may call it the devil, others say it is unconsciousness or ignorance that obstructs us from within; psychotherapists call it the resistance. When people are in therapy and are really suffering… despite the money and effort they are investing to get help in changing-- they/we/all of us sometimes resist change like crazy. I may decide i am going to quit smoking and within a minute i am either lighting up a cigarette or craving one. No matter how much I actually do want to quit… somehow, at the sametime another part of me clearly does not want to quit. Heard anyone say: I may need to go on a diet soon, and would you please pass that cream cheese. Something in us calls for doing the highest good at every turn… and something else inside resists it. So when the I Ching magnifies an inner truth of ours, it is often taking sides in an existing tug of war within the mind. Are you aware of times when hearing good advice activates your own resistances.

Of course, this automatic resistance can be very helpful. It can be smart to resist new ideas until they prove their worth. Or if someone pushes us around, we may instinctively resist them and thereby stand our ground. When a country is invaded, a resistance movement predictably springs up. Our own personal resistance can operate like weight training to help us build up stronger will power and determination, or it can swamp us. If you dislike accepting feedback from other humans, which at times we all do, you may really appreciate the honesty and the privacy of the I Ching.

Whenever we have to make an important choice in life, we may notice more than one voice inside! Every mind contains multiple points of view! We see the extreme form of this in multiple personalities and a common form when we have ‘mixed feelings’. Knowing how much to trust these differing subpersonalities, or opinions or complexes within our own mind, is one of greatest gifts of the I Ching. If I am ‘of two minds’ about something, the I Ching can help me understand and assess these different points of view. “Self awareness is learning to keep yourself company.”

I’ll tell you one way i can measure my own resistance with the I Ching…
