I enjoyed this book a lot! I am a practitioner of Rajah Yoga, and the story spoke to my heart. I do believe that dreams have a purpose, and that we are taught through them. In recalling his dream, the author is opening the door for us all to do the same. In my case, I think I'll use some stream of consciousness approach to journaling to see if I can recall my dreams. It's a fascinating story, it's based on a dream that changed a man, and I think It changes everyone who reads it. It's that powerful. I believe in reincarnation, and I practice meditation. I think that the meditation descriptions are perhaps an ideal, but an ideal that we can all strive for. Some scenes are violent, but it seems that the author is trying to deal with that aspect of creation, and in the process helping us accept and understand as well. There are so many things that this novel highlighted for me. How we create our destinies, how to live in the present, our relationship with our spiritual teachers, and how we can never tell who we were on a previosu life. Can't judge a book by its cover, I guess. It was fun to read it a second time, knowing who the characters really are. I highly recommend this book.
This book was inspiring to read. It made me think about the 'realities' that we bring to bear on the world, instead of recognizing reality itself. It reminded me to step back from my busy day and stop thinking a while and just be. While I find meditation difficult, the characters in the book use it to their advantage so much that I want to learn to practice it. I love Roman history. The historical part of the novel, which describes Roman Britain, was informative, especially about military stategies and weapons. This information is weaved into the story giving the story gravitas. I found that I was imagining the scenes clearly due to the powerful descriptive style. The battle scenes were so efficiently described, I felt like I was watching a movie. I could see horses galloping towards the enemy...I would recommend Dream Maker as a thoroughly enjoyable read.
I read the book several times, and each time I found a new layer, a new exciting twist I had missed before. The reviews I read mentioned a spiritual love story and an adventure. This is so much more. It is a story of a depressed man looking for answers who is apparently helped through his dreams, which take him to revisit a past life. We do have a spiritual love story and it is a good historical novel. I corraborated some of the details, and they check out: Ambrosius is a real character whom many historians are just now starting to believe may be the real King Arthur. The Arthurian period is described very accurately, the way people lived, their concerns, threats, and the dominant issues of that time. I also liked the mystical elements, this can be considered a how-to-manual for meditation and healing...the role of a spiritual teacher. The story about Aramas is deeply touching, how much he did for his disciples.
