Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“To slow time down, practice enjoying the moment. It is where we spend our entire lives.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“The person who desires to leave things better than he found them, who does more than his share, who is not attached to rewards, who is always seeking to benefit others, who knows he is cared for and rewarded by the Universe for his every effort, is able to act selflessly, without expectation of a reward or a return, without thought of advantage, and of him it is said, “He is better than the best,” and, of course, he is greatly rewarded.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“The master sees beyond what is obvious. He sees the unseen, feels the unfelt, and hears the unheard. He looks below the surface for what is hidden and so finds the great heartbeat of the Universe. He smiles, knowing it is his heartbeat, your heartbeat, our heartbeat.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“A person who speaks as if he knows everything soon drives away his listeners. The Universe communicates itself to us in many ways, and sometimes, it is through the words of others. If we act the know-it-all, others may refrain from talking to us, and we may fail to get the message they could have given us.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two

Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“To be joyous of heart is to hold an optimistic outlook, to see adversity as opportunity, to see failure as the starting point of success, to view our stubbed toes as the release of acupuncture points, to wake with a feeling of gratitude, and to sleep with a sustaining, unfaltering trust in the Universe of which we are a part. The person with a joyous heart is a treasure to be with, a wellspring of inspiration, and a fit companion. When we are joyous of heart, we hear a resonance in the songs of the birds, see resonance in the opening of a flower, and feel it in the pressure of a friend’s hand.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom Vol. II: Guidance from the Book of Changes
“Everything that happens, happens at the only possible time it can happen, and it is always at exactly the right time. We cannot get to an appointment before we arrive—or after. It is only at the instant of our arrival that we can arrive, and that is always at exactly the right moment, the perfect moment, the only possible moment.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“To have anything we want, we need only raise our level of consciousness to the level of consciousness where what we want exists.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“Change is like a river: nothing is the same, even for an instant. Everything is continually moving through the six stages of change: about to come into being, beginning, expanding, approaching maximum potential, peaking, and finally, passing its peak and flowing into its new condition.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two

Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“All of life is one action following another, interspersed by periods of rest. If we are in doubt about the outcome of our actions, if our thoughts are concerned with, “What if I should fail?” we will be filled with hesitancy, uncertainty, and our actions will lack the conviction needed to obtain a decisive, favorable outcome. Even the worst outcome we can imagine will ultimately benefit us. It is because of that law of favorability that the Universe is able to continue and we are able to bring about the fruition of our plans.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“A diminished self-image causes us to slouch, to avoid looking others in the eye, to be unassertive, to be indecisive. On the other hand, a healthy self-image causes us to carry ourselves well, to speak confidently and to portray dignity.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers

If our actions are the result of our intentions to do good, to create harmony, to deal fairly, to love dearly, and to live the life of the superior person, can anything else happen except that, as a result of natural law, we reach the loftiest goals to which one can attain and lead lives of greatest happiness?”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“Great music stops the inner turmoil of thought and allows the mind to seek its natural state of joy. Music frees our minds and allows us to soar to heights where we can experience the celestial.

Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers
“It takes practice, feeling happy about the ever enfolding events of life, and, because of all the conditioning we have undergone before this, it may be very difficult to make the change, but if we take the saying to heart and practice it, as the days unfold we will find ourselves living ever happier lives, smiling more, and finally, laughing more.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers
“Faith is stronger than so-called reality.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“Every plan in which we participate has one constant, ourselves. Not that we are always the same, but that we are always part of the plan. All else comes and goes: friends, parents, possessions, conditions, situations, and associates, leaving only us, ourselves.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“A diminished self-image causes us to slouch, to avoid looking others in the eye, to be unassertive, to be indecisive. On the other hand, a healthy self-image causes us to carry ourselves well, to speak confidently and to portray dignity. If we have not taken the time and thought to create a wonderful self-image for ourselves, we have had less, been less, and done less than was possible for us than if we had. We can improve our self-images at any moment including this one.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“To preserve our relationships, we give of our time, our assets, our attention, our help, and our love. To preserve our wealth, we give generously as we are accumulating, so we do not invoke the Universal law of maximization, which states that when anything reaches its maximum potential, it turns toward its opposite.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two
“Even the worst outcome we can imagine will ultimately benefit us. It is because of that law of favor-ability that the Universe is able to continue and we are able to bring about the fruition of our plans.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers
“It is more important that we listen to others than to always be speaking, for in that way we learn what there is to know. We should be easy to talk to, and grateful for new information.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers
