The I Ching, or Book of Change, is a book of wisdom upon which all of Chinese philosophy and eastern medicine is based.
Hexagram # 43: Kuai/Break-through (Resoluteness)
We came to study acupuncture through our passion for the Chinese internal arts of qi gong, ba gua, and tai ji.
This passage in the I Ching speaks volumes and reflects the spirit within the internal martial arts:
“…In a resolute struggle of the good against evil, there are, however, definite rules that must not be disregarded, if it is to succeed…If evil is branded, it thinks of weapons, and if we do it the favor of fighting against it blow for blow, we lose in the end because thus we ourselves get entangled in hatred and passion. Therefore it is important to begin at home, to be on guard in our own persons against the faults we have branded. In this way, finding no opponent, the sharp edges of the weapons of evil become dulled. For the same reasons we should not combat our own faults directly. As longs as we wrestle with them, they continue victorious. Finally, the best way to fight evil is to make energetic progress in the good.”
