This book – The I Ching – is a veritable crash course into what can take place when people pay attention to the small intricacies in life.
As in life, this book offers much to learn from, if one just so chooses. It’s not for no reason that this book has been held in high esteem by sages and mystics going back thousands of years.
Of those sages, perhaps the most notable is Confucius who ironed out his teachings and insights from this particular book.
In any case, as the book hints at in its introduction, this book can be seen just as another book or it can be viewed as something more.
Just as with any other stepping stone that offers opportunity for growth, this particular book is no different. In fact, its insights and advice are not only reasonable, but they resonate quite well for many reasons.
The beauty of this book lies in its simplicity. Throughout its length the book takes an approach of meaning towards everything. From every event, every instance, in every day, there is something to be gained from it. However, will undoubtedly depend on how the individual so chooses to act.
With clarity and depth, the book will help the individual traverse through life by showcasing wisdom in more than ample situations.
Another benefit of this book is how it’s far easier to read than other I Ching books, at least for me. That is always pleasant for someone that’s always attempting to keep things simple.
How this book helps you will be determined ultimately by you, the reader – the individual. For me, personally, if am having trouble with certain circumstances, its helped me reassess my thought process and take a step back and be able to not only take my time, but relax, and thus allow my-self the precision of thought needed to take the next step in life.
That, and that alone, is priceless. The beauty of it is that, the book offers many more gems than that. It’s certainly a must buy for everyone in my opinion, because knowing human nature, we can all benefit from it.
