- Speaking of I-Ching, as Carl Jung says, it really is an
incredible "monument of thought."
Here is another example of how the "Book of Changes"
parts company with other Eastern meditative paths
such as Buddhism.
"Applied to oneself, this hexagram concerns the problem
of achieving a quiet heart. While Buddhism strives for rest
through an ebbing away of all movement in nirvana, the I-Ching
considers rest as a state of polarity - with movement as its
complement." - Hexagram 52 'Keeping still' (Ken)
This of course, coincides with the Western alternation of
contemplative 'prayer' and compassionate 'action.'
