INTRODUCTION
From ancient times Chinese scholars have studied the I'Ching and have considered it the greatest book ever written. At the beginning of every age people are inspired to adapt I'Ching to suit that particular age. In 3,322 B.C., Fu Hsi adapted the Inner Earth Arrangement of the eight ancient hexagrams. This suited the Age of Aries. 1n 1142 B.C. the Duke of Chou adapted the I'Ching to suit the Age of Pisces, by relating it more directly to the family members. The present edition is adapted to suit the new Kosmon (Aquarian) Age. In addition through thousands of years, the Great Diviner was one of the most important advisors of the Emperor. He was in charge of the rules of I'Ching and supervised the adaptation of the rules to the current times, The Chinese considered The I'Ching to be the oldest known literature on earth. Through many thousands of years scholars have added to its knowledge. Confucius said "Give me a few more years to live and I shall master the I'Ching." Hundreds of scholars have worked on the I'Ching and succeeded in bringing a wonderful and consistent meaning to the 64 Hexagrams. From 1200 B.C. to date, various scholars have added commentaries and explanations of I'Ching. In the Imperial library catalogue prepared by Liu Hin over 2000 years ago, 294 works were included on I'Ching by 13 different schools. In the 1715 Imperial Chinese edition, foot-notes by 218 were found. The above I'Ching images existed before I'Ching action images, which in turn preceded Chinese characters. Since man knows more collectively them individually, perhaps you can add to this great fund of knowledge and aid its cosmic adaption to the new Kosmon (Aquarian) Age The central theme of the IChing is that man will become virtuous. He will persevere until he attains success. He will look to the higher causes that rotate in tune with the universal laws of the Creator. The card that one chooses indicates the particular state one is in. If one determines the eight surrounding numbers, he finds the pattern in which he is presently vibrating. The objective of the IChing is to change this spiritual state into a more blessed one. In ancient times in China, one would chose from the yarrow sticks, but today this is laborious and unnecessary. One may control ones destiny with the IChing cards. It is possible for each of the hexagrams to change into another through
3

appropriate movement. Thus we have 64x64 or 4096 stages and these represent every possible spiritual situation. The numbers on the cards indicate a few numerology pattern befitting the Kosmon (Aquarian) Age. God said: These are the nine entities; or, according to the ancients, Jehovih and His eight children, His Sons and Daughters. And these are the same, which in all ages, poets and philosophers have made to speak as, THE FAMILY OF THE UNIVERSE. Through them I speak. Jehovih is the Light, that is, Knowledge. The manifestation of Knowledge in man is Jehovih. The growth of wisdom in man, as the earth groweth older, is the Tree of Light. (Oahspe, Gods Book of Ben 0:10) Legend says that there was a wonderful Golden Age in China when rulers were chosen from the best of men and ruled by their examples of virtue. The sage contemplates this enlightened time and desires that it return to man during the Kosmon Era.

DIRECTIONS FOR USING THE KOSMON ICHING CARDS (1) The simplest method is to shuffle the cards well until you have your vibrations attuned to them then draw one card. This is the state you are now in. (2) MALEThere is a vibratory change every seven days from the solstice. You can draw a card for each cosmic change. (3) FEMALEWith each change of the moon, there is a change in the individual vibration, so determine your new vibration by drawing a card, forgetting the old card with each change of the moon. (4) Examine the appropriate alternate male or female card and if you are willing to change your thoughts into the male (or female) aspects presented, you can accept the other card chosen. You can change. (5) In examining the card(s), pay most attention to the image and try to read it so it means something to you at the particular time. Each image is like a picture of the condition presented. (6) The images represent the spiritual states, while the hexagrams represent the earthly states. (7) When a card is picked, the current is activated, and the resulting awareness illumines the situation, so one can reach to the heights and the depths and examine all things. As a result, one can grasp the seed of all things and the nucleus of understanding. (8) To understand ones condition, gives one great power to control the present and the future. The oracle indicates the causethe effect is up to youyou control your future. (9) The Cosmic Hexagram is located in the central bottom position. There is little that can be written about it at this time because it is that higher hexagram which exists on the finer dimensions of the Es (spirit) plane. The various small dots and strokes in the upper part indicate the development into those particular unseen qualities: the third eye, top of head the solar plexus, ect, or those developments of the unseen Chi, Shen and Ching qualities which affect the human body. There are many unseen exalted qualities not listed at this time which are eventually possible to the virtuous. At the present time, the mind of man has not progress sufficiently into the Kosmon (Aquarian) Age to appreciate this knowledge. It is expected that it

will be released during the high light of the HiDan in the thirteenth cycle of Kosmon. The hexagrams then will total 128. (10) There are a number of special hexagrams which are indicated by a small cross above. The various names above the hexagram indicate the cycles that affect man during the periods shown by the number of the hexagram. These names can also be chanted in order to effectively promote ones attunement with that number. (11) In ancient times, the alchemists called squaring the circle The Philosophers Stone, or the Magic Square in the Magic Circle. On the back of these IChing cards are the IChing Square and Circle, called by ancient philosophers The Squaring of the Circle wherein one could reach a sublime state. The Inner Magic Square is composed of a unique pattern of numbers, so that in any square of four numbers, the total of those numbers equals 130. Each row horizontally or vertically totals 260, or twice 130.Thus the square divides the 13 weeks of each season into ten parts (total 130). The Inner Magic Square has great power. The Outer Entry Circle is also divided into sections of 130. Contemplation of the Cover Magic Circle and Magic Square brings one closer and closer to the basic vibrations of the Creator. (12) The Outer Circle represents the worldly vibrations that surround one. The Inner Square represents the Initiate who has gained control of his entity, freeing himself from worldly influences. When a man masters staying in the Inner Square, he will hear music of such exquisite beauty that he will want to hear it more and more. The eloquence of these thrilling notes will be a sign that the Preserver Guides have come to him. In order to hear more of this glorious music, a man will strive to remain in the Inner Square. This will give enchantment to his very being and enable him to contact celestial entities.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE CARDS The best spiritual methods of attunement and inspiration are naturally those which involve direct communication with the All Highest, the Creator, the Great Spirit Ever-Present within All. Even though this is clearly the case, there may be times where one feels spiritual progress in terms of knowledge, wisdom, attunement, or enlightenment, may be best furthered through the use of certain spiritual tools or methods. Some possible avenues of this kind would include relatively sacred writings (such as Oahspe), the Creator's beautiful and awesome universe itself (of so many wonderful dimensions), and most powerful of all, spiritual activities done in unity with other souls (spiritual fellowship, works, discussion, prayer, communion, and worship). Hence these cards, The Kosmon IChing Cards, can be viewed as one possible set of spiritual tools. Nevertheless, these cards should never be considered as infallible, nor as the sole, best method, and especially never as a substitute for as direct as possible communion with the Creator. It should be kept in mind also that any such tools take knowledge, virtue, skill, and above all faith and practice to use well. In addition, these cards will not be for everyone, nor even perhaps for really that many of the True Seekers of Light. However, for those who could be led to use them at times for the greater good and to more perfectly fulfill the Will of the Creator, they are presented here with the sincere hope and wish that they may be only a benefit to all persons focusing upon them. The first three sets are included in this book out of the nine that the original author, Cliff Carmichael, created. The other sets may be available from certain Faithists. You may contact me at anthony3741@yahoo in order to confer with me on obtaining the other sets. It is true the first set is the most accessible, yet even the specific information concerning the information on the cards, is not fully complete though attentive minds and good inspiration can unlock their symbolism and meaning. I cannot speak to any of the other sets, as I have never seen them, though I have heard the ninth set (The White Set) is the best of these. All of these card sets contain a great deal of spiritually-based concepts which
7

have been systematized from various sources (Oahspe, the I'Ching, the Chinese zodiac, the western zodiac, numerology, and more) as seemed best to their original author, Cliff Carmichael. Therefore, the users of these cards will require some time and study to understand the different elements presented on each card, and the different ways in which the cards have been organized in groups within each set. It is suggested that the users not feel they need to understand all of these elements in order to begin using and interpreting the cards wisely. In many cases, only those sections of the cards which seem the more comprehensible or more harmonious, should be focused on. In particular, the headings and central Chinese characters, seem simplest and clearest means to understand the answer to ones question. It could also be right argued that simply studying the spiritual systematized information is in itself a more valuable spiritual exercise that using the cards for prophecy or divination. A third valuable spiritual activity would be to meditate upon the cards along the lines of the best inspiration one can attune towards between The Voice of The Creator, and the Heavenly Lines of Alignment that exist between the cards and the angelic realms in terms of spiritual cycles. The actual divination use of cards should involve the posing of a question or a problem, and a prayer or a request for the highest light on the subject, followed by a "random" drawing of a card. The interpretation of this card in light of the question, will in itself, require the user to draw upon their inner inspiration and logical analysis to reach a clear reading. For whatever truth or good will is achieved through the reading, you can be sure the Creator is ultimately the source which is expanding through you. Please remember that simple study of the cards themselves, rather than divination, may be the sole and best possible use of the cards for an individual user. Please see the next section for more specific card information.

SPECIFIC CARD INFORMATION 1. 2. The number of the card is shown in large type in the upper-left corner. Above this card number is the number of the House to which the card belongs and the number within that House. There are 8 Houses and 8 cards in each House The two small numbers to the right of the card number represent the individual numbers of Associated Cards. These indicate the cards by means of which one can change his state or condition. The title of the card, appearing in large print, is the name given to the card. Above the name are usually shown the 2 ancient names given to the House. The roman number l or ll between these ancient names indicates whether the card belongs to the 1st or 2nd part of the IChing. The M or F in the upper-right corner indicates whether a male or female Preserver is associated with the card. Beside this M and F are the numbers of the pair of female and male cards this card is associated with. Below the M and F there is the word Male or Female which also indicates whether the card is Male or Female. Below the M or F is the family relationship. Below the family relationship there is often information in small letters which relates directly to the card. To the left under the large number is the name of the card in Old

English. 13. Under this Old English name is a suggested approach to chanting the name. The chant tunes one into the influence of the card. Under the chant in small letters appears a suggestion of the feeling that could be used while chanting. Under the large name in the top center are words which expand ones understanding of meanings associated with that particular card. Under these names in the top center is the ancient Panic symbol or image, as given in Saphah, which is related to that card. Under this Panic symbol in the top center is the picture of the House sign, one of the Gods Book of Ben names for the spiritual symbolic child of the Creator. In the center of the card, below this Ben symbol, are the ancient Chinese characters / writing which describes the qualities of the card. Beside the Chinese characters on both sides is a summary reading or text of the card containing the related ideas which are more appropriate to the new Kosmon (Aquarian) Age. In the center below the interpretations of this image. Chinese characters are traditional

Above the cosmic hexagram on some cards are any related cosmic influences. A small cross here indicates a cosmic blessing. In the lower left corner are the Primary Trigrams along with their names. The upper one is the cosmic one. The small numbers associated with these trigrams indicate the line values. The arrows indicate the directional flow of each trigram. To the right of the Primary Trigrams are the Nuclear Trigrams which are the inside Trigrams of the hexagram. These indicate the cosmic action taken in the nucleus. The upper part of the Nuclear Trigram is cosmic. Between the Primary Trigrams and the Nuclear Trigrams is a vertical line. If the card is Male, the line bends away from the Primary Trigrams, and visa versa. The words near the Trigrams and this line are the associated meanings.

In the extreme right-bottom corner is found the Yang or the Yin and Yes or No, for the purpose of answering questions. Just above Yang or Yin in a box are the family attributes and family images for the hexagram. Polar Space information is found just about this family box. Between the Cosmic Hexagram and the family box is a 3x3 Magic Square. It indicates those numbers which are in harmony with the card number. Above the Magic Square are the dance instructions which may be followed (see Magic Square as well) if one wishes to attune oneself to the various vibrations associated with the card.
