I read this book via the suggestion of a Facebook friend (thanks Nathan!). The core concept of this book is to encourage you to develop your ability to experience lucid dreaming 24 hours a day. To people who are heavily tied to objective logic, this book is completely irrational and does nothing but suggest that people develop inner delusions. I wouldn't recommend it to Ayn Rand fans for example. But to those who are willing to forgo logic and perhaps even language, and move into the realm of fe ...more

This book has been a life changer for me. After some 7 years of serious meditation much has happened. There have been instances where there has been simple acceptance, as insubstantial phenomenon has allowed the continued occurence and the expansion of my experience of another level of perception that I did not really understand and which I did not really see as being linked except as something that has arisen as the result of my practice. This book takes those experiences and places them within ...more

I guess the concepts, as others have said, are interesting enough, but his presentation and his propensity for redefining terms to suit his ends are too annoying to make this a beneficial, let alone enjoyable read. Best avoided all together.

I ordered this book because I thought it had something to do with lucid dreaming, though it didn’t really, not lucid dreaming in the conventional sense, and because I love and admire Arnold Mindell.

This must be the deepest book I’ve ever read through to the end, and the most difficult to comprehend. I had to read most of the sentences several times. Mindell has his own vocabulary for things, and some parts of the book might have been more comprehensible had this not been the case.

The book is abo

With Arnold Mindell books it is like this: you need to keep on reading them and you are never done. Every time you open it, you again may discover another layer of reality.

This book is quite inspiring and helpful to our every day life. I say that because it tells us and shows us how our hidden feelings affect our life. It provides readers techniques to help to sort out problems, in which most of the problems are caused by the hidden feelings we had but being neglected for a long time. In order to notice those hidden feelings, we need to be lucid all the time, not only during dream state but also during waking state. If we achieve that, life will be easier and much ...more

Although I appreciated the content and intention of this book, three stars is being generous. I found the writing to be childish and redundant, therefore, irritating. I like the concepts though and would still recommend checking it out.

I found this book very annoying to read because of the way it was written. It was choppy. Mindell's concepts are better represented in his other books.

Mi aspettavo molto da questo libro, ma speravo in un approccio più pratico... troppo teorico per essere interessante.

“You are born in a human form, and you find joy in it. Yet there are ten thousand other forms endlessly transforming that are equally good, and the joy in these is untold. The sage dwells among those things, which can never be lost, and so he lives forever. He willingly accepts early death, old age, the beginning and the end, and serves as an example for everyone.63” 0 likes
