The Art of Dreaming - The Sorcerer's Crossing - Being-in-Dreaming

When reading the recommended book "The Art of Dreaming" mentioned in the topics "Books of Lucid Dreaming - Astral Projection - OBE (Out of Body Experiences)" and "Learning LUCID DREAMS Tips and Tricks Before DIRECT ASTRAL TRAVELS" is very interesting to also read the books "The Sorcerer's Crossing" and "Being-in-Dreaming", to get some ideas regarding the life of Sorcerers and Sorceresses.

A quote made in another Topic that explains some regarding the book "The Art of Dreaming".

In complement to Dr Rory Mac Sweeney's book, I'll mention below the information about 3 other books that are very relevant. I'll be sharing with you also the information of other books in another specific Thread/Topic in this forum, but this 3 are important as complement this great specific book.

...

3. The third one is the book "The Art of Dreaming" by Carlos Castaneda.

Is fortunate that don Carlos Castaneda wrote this book that treats this specific topic along the all book. This book provides elements that I haven't seen in any of the other books of Lucid Dreaming, as this book, besides it's clear topic of Lucid Dreaming ("ensoñar" in Spanish which is different to just "soñar", because the first one involves being conscious while dreaming, the second one not), also treats the topic of the necessity of having Energy to achieve consciousness, and this is one of the elements that are greatly needed to be able to activate the lucidity in a dream, and the "warrior's path" well explained in the book as a tool to save energy and don't waste it in not useful emotional draining activities (day to day life for non conscious people) so that it can be used to activate lucidity on the dreaming process, of course reinforced with the methods that "don Juan" instructs don Carlos Castaneda; many people don't understand why they can't achieve lucidity in their dreams, and lack of energy is one of the reasons (also not applying the appropriate methods which by reading the 4 books mentioned in this thread/topic are covered); people lose their energy by having (and in may cases searching for) emotional problems (the "warrior's path" will involve getting away from environments, people, and activities, that drain your energy), so that's something that will have to be fixed if someone really wants to be a serious Lucid Dreamer, as what the person will find in that other place will require from him/her to have a well built mental character to advance and evolve his/her consciousness into something more than just being a Human Animal.

Also, the topic of the consciousness being energy is treated in this book, as well as many other elements that would also help to understand elements that lucid dreamers experience like the so called "astral wind" which is the lucid dreamer being transported by the beings that inhabit the non physical world (the one accessed while dreaming and of course lucid dreaming), in this book you'll understand that the beings that are moving your energy consciousness on a lucid dream (the travels that occur by a pulling force on the lucid dreamer's astral/energy body) at very fast speeds, are certain inhabitants that live in that other non physical world, that "don Juan" calls "inorganic beings" (beings that are energy consciousnesses but don't have bodies with organs like the ones we see in plants, animals, and human animals, in this physical world). And many other concepts that will provide lucid dreamers with certain practices to cross the "Gates" that are there to restrict the access to those realms of energy where there are many worlds with civilizations, some similar to ours, other more advanced, some of them inorganic (that don't have organic body functions and restrictions like in the world we currently inhabit) and others organic (like our world).

You can buy it on Amazon (amazon.com) on the following link, read a preview of the book, and read some reviews some persons have posted there, (remember to choose the sold by Amazon option to get the direct fulfillment guarantee by Amazon).

https://www.amazon.com/Art-Dreaming-Carlos-Castaneda/dp/006092554X/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8


Some of this books can be found on Internet, on eMule, or on torrent, searching resources; again, remember to buy the books that have helped you to Lucid Dream, Astral Travel, or OBE, in legal places such as Amazon or the libraries where you live, so that the authors receive that help from you for their efforts to share their knowledge and investigation with others.

...


My best regards.

Not sure how to feel about anything Castenada wrote or people endorsing Castenada. He ended up forming an ugly cult that destroyed famillies, and having a brainwashed harem of females, some of them killing themselves after he died.
Don't like that part about having to retreat from the world and it's activities, you end up like a weirdo locked himself in a room all day talking to voices in your head, not good.
At the end of the day, don't take any of this too seriously.

I enjoyed that book. Like anything, it's a Very Good Idea to leave the author (the actual man or woman themselves) out of the equation when reading books. Take what appeals to you, take the exercises, the theories, the ideas, the experiments... but don't get hooked on the 'Messenger' - he's not relevant.

That's my two-pennies worth.  grin

The only thing of Castenada's I've read is the first book in the Don Juan series.
And while people seem to have some misgivings about what exactly transpired in the books... if you just put aside that stuff and read it with an open mind, you can actually learn quite a bit.  The lessons he teaches are 100% valid and transferable to your own life in a very positive manner.  Smiley
