ABSTRACT
The I Ching, also known as the Book of Change is a Chinese oracle structured with 64 hexagrams or primary commentaries with six "changing lines" that are filled with wisdom rooted in Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism. The purpose of this paper is to better understand the spiritual wisdom of the I Ching in order to develop ourselves and better our communications with others. This paper will briefly explain some fundamental principles and concepts: enlightenment, the Universe and energy, the lao, te, and yin and yang. These fundamental concepts and principles provide an understanding of the workings of the I Ching that fosters acceptance of the credibility of this Chinese classic oracle. Thereafter, in developing oneself and their communications with others, I will look at the types of superior personas and some of their qualities; and the characteristics of an inferior person primarily revealed in the I Ching. This paper concludes with an application of some of the I Ching wisdom to three life events that has enlighten and nourished me in my adaptation of them.
