How is it useful? Do you really understand "trigram" and "hexagram"?

Oh yeah, Buddy . . . in fact, you should attempt to master the use of the yarrow stalks, rather than just throwing down some coins, and then to master not just the overt meanings, but the symbolism, as well.

Then, when you've got a lock on all of that . . . don't even take a **** without first consulting the I Ching . . .

I prefer 5 card tarot, pentacles wild.

For several months, a man who had a crush on me but who was too shy to do anything about it would visit me when I came home from work. We would throw the I Ching at his apartment and read Tarot cards at mine. That was around the time Nixon resigned. I don't think I saw him after the Nixon resignation. We went to the apartment of a friend of mine to watch the resignation. She borrowed the tv . . . hippies just didn't seem to have televisions. I met my ex-husband shortly after that.

Moi aussi. That's the extent of my French these days.

I prefer the direct route and talking face to face with Cthulhu. That tiny figure being dropped by my favorite deity is actually me. That day, he was in a bad mood and he kept picking me up and dropping me and then catching me before I hit the rocky ground below. What a joker! Confused

The I Ching is useful for entertainment, or for a study into Sinology or something, but aside from that, it's horsehockey. If there's no empirical evidence... Sad
