Today’s Question by the reader : András

Author: Paulo Coelho

In the “Manual of the Warrior of Light”, you mention the I Ching. Do you use the I Ching and would you recommend it to the warriors of light?

People wrongly think that the I Ching is a book of divination – it is actually a book of action. That’s why, when you ask something, you need to be very precise in your question and very subtle in your interpretation.
I use the I Ching very seldom – but when I do, it is only for questions that I consider as being at the thresholds of my life. I recommend then this book to warriors, but only in very specific cases: when they know precisely their questions and when they are conscious of the fact that after their question, they need to act and no longer ponder.
