it was amazing
bookshelves: nonfiction, spiritual, shamanism

Another absorbing read from Alberto Villoldo, distilling the messages and teachings he learned from spending time with Don Manuel, hearing about the Laika.

He shares and expands on the 3 nightmares that have weakened our resolve and debilitated our spirit throughout history, attributes that are not only personal, but at the heart of society and how the Laika transform them.
- the daydream of security turned into the nightmare of insecurity - how do you stay safe in a dangerous world
There are four adjectives that keep us asleep in the dream of security.
I am hungry. I am afraid. I am angry. I am lonely.

- the daydream of permanence turned into the nightmare of death - why does everything, including life, have to end?
- the daydream of love that is unconditional turned into the nightmare of conditioned love - how will you find the one you love, and who will love you as you are?

Each of the nightmares has an associated giveaway, a path towards expressing a higher level of understanding and consciousness. Of who, I am.
