Welcome to the Yee Jing
The Yee Jing (also known as the Book of Changes or I Ching) is an ancient Chinese text, dating back to at least the 4th century BCE*. It has been used as an oracle and as a guide to living for over 2,500 years. The Yee Jing is still in use today.
The Yee Jing embodies the fundamental elements of Chinese philosophy, and is an integral and indispensable part of traditional Chinese intellectual and spiritual life.
The Yee Jing would be consulted whenever any major decision had to be made, or any crucial change could be forseen.
While it can be used for simple divination, it can also be used as a subtle tool to explore the opposing and complementary influences involved in the changes that life brings.
Most importantly, the Yee Jing helps us to understand that most mysterious, fascinating and essential of subjects, our own inner self. It is our reactions to the text, the thoughts and feelings it provokes, that provide insight into our conscious and unconscious minds. The Yee Jing is a sort of universal ink-blot test, in that what we see when we read the oracle tells us much about who we are. Armed with this knowledge, we can better make the difficult choices that confront us every day.
The Control-G Yee Jing presents an easily accessible route to this ancient wisdom by automating the ritual of 'casting' the Yee Jing (using the '3 coins' method) and by providing both the text and the imagery. It also includes a modern psychological interpretation of the somewhat esoteric text. See About the Yee Jing.
