There is an ancient Eastern curse that says "May you live in interesting times." A quick glance at the daily headlines tells us that, a decade or so into the twenty-first century, these times certainly fit the bill.

The authors of The Toltec I Ching, Martha Ramirez-Oropeza and William Douglas Horden, have made the often difficult to use I Ching accessible with this brand new book. I found their text both enlightening and easy to follow, and their approach of marrying a Chinese system with a Mesoamerican one yields abundant fruit. Ramirez-Oropeza, according to the dust cover, is "a mural painter, a performer in popular theatre, and a researcher/lecturer of the Nahuatl pre-Hispanic codices of Mexico." Horden "has researched indigenous divinatory systems of ancient China and Mexico with passion and independence since 1969. He is steeped in the shamanic world view."

What is new and key to this book is the focus on Balance. East and West, Masculine and Feminine, the 64 hexagram paintings and descriptions move away from the male, aristocratic biases that have mired the I Ching in the past, and call strongly upon the feminine creative principle in providing much-needed guidance.

The book, with its Mesoamerican influences, also situates its contents in the coming of December 21, 2012, when the Mayan calendar ends one age in anticipation of another.

The opening material is clear, concise, and uplifting. The "Introduction" details all of the aspects of the authors' process and rationale for combining the two systems that I have thus far mentioned. The "Casting and Interpreting the Oracle" section takes the reader through the process from casting the coins to producing the hexagrams that will guide the reading.

Once in a while a book appears that is exactly what the spirit of the times cries out for. The Toltec I Ching is one of those books. At the beginning of the 20th century Carl Jung said we each have a masculine and feminine side and repressing either creates psychological, cultural, and spiritual imbalance. Is there anything new about this message? No, spirit persons from every culture have always understood this truth and devised wonderful teachings to convey it, but advancing civilization keeps forgetting and digging itself into ever-deeper holes. So just when we are waking up to the frightening darkness and depth of our current hole -- featuring, among other things, genocidal wars, economic crises, and environmental disasters on a global scale -- along comes the Toltec I Ching.

The main character in this brilliant and beautiful oracle -- which combines the ancient wisdom of the Chinese and Toltecs with the sensibility of a modern-day spirit person in a series of 64 brief chapters that reads almost like a novel -- is the authentic Spirit Warrior.

The setting is the dual inner and outer worlds of the awakening soul.

The plot describes the journey of Everyperson through a series of psycho-spiritual tests which develop his/her masculine and feminine sides, strengthen intention, motivate action, guide direction, and create growing awareness.

The theme is how to free oneself from ignorance and transcend duality to become a conscious, responsible, enlightened being capable of making healing choices of benefit to the world.

William Douglas Horden's writing style is clear and masterfully organized logos artfully combined with imaginative, symbolic mythos.

And the format? Simply gorgeous!

Buy this book. Buy it now, or be sorry forever.

Horden and Ramirez-Oropeza have tied it All together in a workable tool. If you have been
searching for a doorway. This is the door. Reach over and grab the handle,
turn the knob, open the door and you will know with absolute certainty who
you are and what to do.

Horden and Ramirez-Oropeza have reminded us that we are an unlimited creative energy
field capable of great happiness and joy, that we are a source of great
happiness and joy for all being. All that is necessary for that to happen is
for us to remember and to be it. So by their saying the Word in the Toltec I
Ching, it is, and everyone who touches this book is touched by great
happiness and all of existence is shifted to a vibration of joy, wonder,
beauty, peace, and happiness.

This is a vision of the world reborn, reconnected. This is a vision so powerful that
it creates a new reality, a new world order. This is a vision so beautiful
and so wonderful that all of the old vision of separation, scarcity, fear,
anger, and loneliness is forgotten in a flash of great abundance, joy, and
unconditional love for all beings. This vision is experienced in the moment,
every time we open the book and throw the coins. Each time we throw the
coins, we are reminded who we are, what we are, why we are, and how we want
to be. We know great joy and peace. This is the doorway. This is the Word
spoken that creates the new world.

The Toltec I Ching is our memory of the future. It is our connection, our
life line to paradise.
