: The core Taoist concept of yin and yang is
: not yin and yang. It is yin/yang. Yin and
: yang are simply two different ways of
: looking at the same thing.
: "Change" is just a different way
: of looking at the same thing. Change is the
: product of divided thinking. Relative
: thinking. Dualistic thinking. Split-mind
: There is only the whole.
: Butcho, you might enjoy reading, learning
: from, even consulting the I Ching, (Book of
: *Changes*, aka Book of Wisdom), an
: exquisite, subtle, esoteric and profound
: explanation of yin, yang, and change. The
: meaning of terms lies in the culture in
: which they arose; I Ching is probably the
: premier source for understanding the Chinese
: meanings of yin, yang and change.
: There are many translations, of course. I
: have several, the Wilhelm/Baynes my most
: respected as a source for wisdom, insight
: and understanding for thirty years. It's a
30 years. That long. I won't go there because there is no time like the present. You don't happen to have an original copy of the I Ching by Fu Zi just lying around your forest retreat? Do ya, do ya huh?
You are right. It is time for me to take a sincere look at the I Ching. I have a copy of John Blofeld's I Ching and picked up an I Ching workbook just the other day. Great minds think alike.
