Writing lately about ways Yi helps reminded me of possibly my favourite chapter of the Dazhuan (the ‘Great Treatise’, 5th and 6th Wings of the Yijing): ‘Yi is a document that should not be set at a distance.

Yi helps in the ways we need… I’ve been thinking about ways Yi helps, and it occurs to me that different ways will be important to different people, or at different times of life.

We habitually talk about it as a person: ‘Yi’ rather than ‘the Yi’; something we can ‘get to know’ rather than just ‘learn’; something that speaks. (The roots of the word ‘oracle’ are in Latin orare, ‘to speak’.
