He follows cosmic patterns for maximum success. Learn these timeless formulas and Bring It. Read Yo Ching to play the game at Top Levels. Master reality with Yo Ching power. World will spin your way." FROM THE FOREWORD, BY HUGH GALLAGHER: The I Ching is one of the oldest books in the world, dating back to BC China. The original author remains lost in the mists of time. But the cryptic text has since puzzled scholars, mystics, and seekers of truth for more than 3000 years. A myriad of minds, from Confucius to Jung, have meditated on the I Ching, trying to decipher the meaning of its 64 different “hexagrams”. Randomly accessing various chapters, followers of the I Ching believe the spirit of the book presents precisely what they need to know, about whatever situation they are seeking guidance on, without their conscious choice. It was without conscious choice that I became involved in YO CHING: Ancient Knowledge for Streets Today. The path of events that lead me to reinterpret an ancient Chinese classic for today's hip hop generation began in 2010. When economic stagnation sank the US job market, my life long dream of moving to Asia seemed a reasonable reality. Selling what I owned, I bought a one way ticket. With dumb luck and smart hustle, I lived for several years in Bangkok, where I met lots of people, many characters, and one True Player. True Player was a regular at my favorite Bangkok watering hole. We chatted often. New York City formed an easy, instant bond between us. Beyond worldly success, True Player possessed the richest trove of street knowledge I have ever encountered. Framed in a gallery of “motherfucker” “bitches” and “shit”, his jewels of wisdom were both hilarious and limitless. So one night when True Player brought up the I Ching, which he claimed to have memorized, I wasn’t too surprised. But when he began reciting from memory various passages—translated into “motherfucker”-thick Bronx patois, I was blown away. Player’s profound and casual take on the I Ching—which he called Yo Ching—was totally profane and utterly wise. His disregard for propriety opened new dimensions within the work. Throughout history, many learned sages have applied themselves to translations of this classic world text. But none of them, to my knowledge, have utilized phrases like “crab ass”, “bitch slap”, and references to “roll on motherfuckers cross town”. Impressed, I proposed to preserve it for posterity. We shook hands on that arrangement, and late that night in a Bangkok bar, Yo Ching was born. For the next two years, off and on, months at times passing between meetings, I sat with True Player in a Bangkok bar and transcribed Yo Ching. When I left The Big Mango in 2014, I brought those notebooks with me back to the US and honed them into YO CHING: Ancient Knowledge for Streets Today, which is available on www.yoching.net. The book is both transcendent and brutally practical. The depth of wisdom that has enticed I Ching scholars of all schools, through many generations, is evident within every “Wrexagram” of Yo Ching. But the blunt brilliance of the Bronx brings these lessons to modern heights. Both savvy and sage, profane and noble, True Player's Yo Ching reflects the disjointed contradictions of our time, and provides strategies for navigating them. But Yo Ching does this without the Machiavellian maneuvers so popular in “dark triad” manipulative arts. Like environmental conservation, Yo Ching provides mental conservation. Instead of slashing down people and burning the competition, readers of Yo Ching learn to perceive reality, blend their intentions, measure results, and refine efforts to realize highest potentials. -- Hugh Gallagher, Producer of YO CHING and author of the famous College Application Essay.About the Author:
