I have succeeded in elucidating the psychological phenomenology of the I Ching, I shall have carried out my purpose.

As to the thousands of questions, doubts, and criticisms that this singular book stirs up I cannot answer these.

The I Ching does not offer itself with proofs and results; it does not vaunt itself, nor is it easy to approach.

Like a part of nature, it waits until it is discovered.

It offers neither facts nor power, but for lovers of self-knowledge, of wisdom if there be such it seems to be the right book.

To one person its spirit appears as clear as day; to another, shadowy as twilight; to a third, dark as night.

He who is not pleased by it does not have to use it, and he who is against it is not obliged to find it true.

Let it go forth into the world for the benefit of those who can discern its meaning. ~Carl Jung, Psychology and Religion, Paragraph 1018.
