Overview

The paths to spiritual awareness are many. Direct paths are hard to find and sometimes even harder to follow. The Oracle of Love is a most direct and accessible spiritual guide. It is a contemporary interpretation of the I Ching, an Oracle dating back more than two millennia. The Oracle is easy to use - it takes a minute or two to cast a hexagram and another to read its text. Guidelines for interpreting the hexagrams are provided.

While the I Ching expresses the culture and values of ancient China, the Oracle of Love is written in a contemporary Western idiom. It proposes Love to be the primary spiritual purpose and sexual love to be a source of both personal and spiritual delight.

The Oracle of Love is not a scholarly re-work of classical texts but a consolidation of the author’s actual experience of the I Ching covering more than forty years of daily use.

Meet the Author

As a child the author was groomed for the Jewish rabbinate but chose to study physics and mathematics at university instead, where he embraced atheism. After completing a bachelor's degree he changed direction to pursue a career in the arts, but in the 1970's a psychedelic experience rekindled his interest in religion.

Neither art, science nor religion could accommodate the spiritual directness of the psychedelic experience and his mathematical bent led to the author experimenting with randomness as a possible spiritual expression, during which pursuit he discovered the I Ching. He retreated into a suburban lifestyle designing computer software while learning to negotiate the landscape of the I Ching, orchestrating a successful career and raising a family as he went. By the time his family had grown up his familiarity with the I Ching had matured sufficiently to express his understanding in this Oracle of Love.
