    Images dreamed on the pathways to infinity

    Not a book for beginners, this is a continuation of the Castaneda journey towards the final end. It is two books away from his last, which is Active Side of Infinity. Another illuminating volume in the Toltec Tradition. Accept no substitutes.

    A reviewer

    The art of dreaming is an useful guide for active 'lucid' dreaming. However, it is written by Carlos Castaneda, so do not expect it to be perfectly clear or to avoid references to Don Juan 'The sorcerer who taught Castaneda' or the previous six books. The phrasing of 'Don Juan said' mentioned in the previous review is only to comfort and aid the reader into familiarity with this obstruse topic. Read expecting to have methods implied, not explained, and not to fully comprehend without contemplation and/or previous reading. Please do not decide to vent against this noble book in retribution for your own inadequacies in understanding a intermediate concept.

    This one time, at band camp, Don Juan said...

    This book is painful to read. The author jumps into quoting a gentleman named 'Don Juan' without any clear explanation as to who this man is. After reading a few pages it's obvious Don Juan was a spiritual leader to the author. But why not clear that up right up front, especially since almost every paragraph starts with 'And Don Juan said...'. Maybe he should have let Don Juan write the book. He would've used half as much ink and paper if he had just titled the book 'Don Juan said...' and just wrote everything Don Juan said rather than tell us at the start of every paragraph that 'Don Juan said...' I gained nothing from reading this book. The author used a page to write what could've been written in a sentence.

    Real Dreaming Or Acid Trip?

    At times while reading this book I wasn't sure if Carlos was actually using dream techniques or was using hallucinogens, which for me was important because I have done some lucid dreaming practice. So on that part of the book I was a little confused. The strength to me were the pearls of wisdom his writings imparted that can be seen in many self-help books on the market. Such as discussion about intention which has become the subject of many books. In fact, Castaneda is quoted in some of them. Overall, it had its moments but there wasn't much drama. The sections that did have some drama made for much better reading.
