    A friend of mine has been telling me about soul journeying and I was looking for a book that had some incite into shamanism This book contains cryptic but very uotable and intriguing snippets of wisdom Carlos Castaneda learned them throughout his life from his own journeys guided by Don Juan Maruis and Florinda Matus As someone who has never read anything by Carlos Castaneda this was not a good place to start it is filled with the outcomes but missing the story so it is hard to absorb It reminded me most of CATCHING THE BIG FISH by David Lynch because it provides some inspiring mystery and metaphor but it is hard to actually catch the fishI feel inspired to take a less rational approach letting the wheel of time flow around me explore intuitive patterns rather than break things down with detailed analysisThe greatest flaw of human beings is to remain glued to the inventory of reason Reason doesn't deal with man as energy Reason deals with instrument that create energy but it has never seriously occurred to reason that we are better than instruments we are organisms that create energy We are bubbles of energy

    Wasn't what I expected Seemed like random thoughts and not really about time

  3. says:

    This book is full of uotes from the books he previously wroteSome uotes that really made me think are“If his spirit is distorted he should simply fix it—purge it make it perfect—because there is no other task in our entire lives which is worthwhileTo seek the perfection of the warrior’s spirit is the only task worthy of our temporariness our manhood”But what is perfect? What is worthwhile? These are all just words how can we truly express what and who we are suppose to be with words I will have to dig in deeper to his works really shouldn't of picked this book up first but it was a start

    I had this book lying for a while Finally I picked it up and realized that it's like book 11 of a series It's sort of a review of all the previous books as far as I understand Half of the stuff I didn't uite get but the rest seemed really profound Anyway I liked it enough to decide to read Castaneda's works from the beginning

  5. says:

    My friend suggested reading him there's some interesting uotes I really liked one that said to be angry at someone you first have to consider that person important lots of other insites and shaman uotes overall the book was probably a little to new agey for me but I may read another of his works

  6. says:

    Personally I have no concern with whether these books are fiction or non fiction I found them to be good friends Some very enjoyable tricks learned in the choices I makes when interacting with my environment

    Many years ago I enjoyed Castaneda's Don Juan and I was interested in how I would now find the author's later works This is a book of uotes from his earlier works and there are some very good ones especially the role death plays while contemplating life Basically Castenada's mentor has led him through a path that initially made use of psychotropic plants and later showed that drugs are not necessary to understand that time is a useful illusion and that detachment is on the road to enlightenment Castenada pens all this as an UCLA anthropologist studying Mexican native shamansHalf way through this book I read a saloncom story about Castenada and the foundation he created in a vein similar to scientology Although this books uotes are very worthwhile I find the use of drugs and intermediaries serving between a seeker and God to be both dated and aberrant Since new thoughts were not incorporated into this work I found it interesting only from a historical perspective What would be really interesting is a biography about the author the 70s and his philosophybusiness

    I was first introduced to Castaneda’s work two years ago when my dad found two books for me to read from his college days The Teachings of Don Juan A Yaui Way of Knowledge and A Separate Reality Rarely does my father actually pick up a book so I knew this one was going to be pretty good The first of Castaneda’s twelve book series The Teachings of Don Juan dragged me into his narrative uickly I recommend it to everyone I know and have both of my personal copies circulating through my friends uite often My favorite Castaneda book is Journey to Ixtlan his third in the seriesThe Wheel of Time is a collection of uotations and commentary from the first eight books I feel that it falls way short of effectively communicating the wisdom of the books but it was an interesting read nonetheless

  9. says:

    Not your usual book What you will find in this book are numerous uotations from all of Castaneda's most common books This is his last book which is intended to summarize his shamanisms teachings He teaches the difference between a regular person and a warrior He describes their similarities in thinking but at the same time the difference of their cognition This teachings can most definitely be related to our modern spiritualism shown today but in differenet perspective Carlos Castaneda's intent to change the way people view the world indeed worked very well in his days and still in some parts of the world today The point of view still remains the same for all spiritual teachers

  10. says:

    The book cleverly says you can not possibly explain the teachings of the shamans without sounding like a fool so I won't bother I will say I started reading it right after my father passed away and I appreciate how it put me into a different state of being than I would have otherwise without foolishly ignoring the situation entirely
