Format: Paperback
There are lots of interesting ideas in this book, echoing the great philosophers and psychoanalysists, shedding new light on both. I did not grasp the full significance of the 'tonal' and the 'nagual' until I read 'The Fire From Within', which explains that they correllate to 'first attention' and 'second attention'. The more I read of these books the more convinced I am that they contain a powerful and profound message.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The stories about sorcerers who are determined to outwit death and to `merge with the intent of infinity,' as related in the several books by Carlos Castaneda, could be said to be a reflection of the wave of popular interest in exploration of the boundaries of consciousness that was somewhat characteristic of sophisticated Western society some forty or so years ago. Whether the accounts are really true or fabricated has been a matter of heated debate from the first. Whilst they certainly tend to stretch credibility almost to snapping point, there is a curiously attractive element that invites one to believe in the characters and their extraordinary adventures. The reported death of Carlos Castaneda in Los Angeles (1998) from an ugly disease must have been something of a blow for those readers who had no trouble believing in the stories.

Their relevance today? Well, whatever one cares to believe about the veracity of the story itself the work contains, through implication, a thorough critique of the human ethos. So skilfully is it woven into the texture of the tales that it may well have passed unnoticed, intentionally or otherwise, by millions of readers. Concealed in the romance of sorcery and magic is a totally disenchanted view of human society. The characters in the story simply turn their backs on humanity, occupying themselves instead with their all-absorbing interest: 'the mastery of awareness,' the abandonment of the `inner dialogue' and the exploration of dimensions outside ordinary perception.

I've reread this book to enhance my meditation practise and committement. Furthermore Castaneda is a good fluent storyteller. It doesn't matter if those accounts are real or fiction.

In this book, Castaneda's apprentiship with don Juan has been finished, and now don Juan is gone, leaving Carlos alone in the world of sorcerers. He meets a number of female and male sorcerers, which were also apprentices of Juan and Genaro and he falls in a trap designed to kill him or give him power. Carlos for the first time realizes the meanings of don Juan's and Genaro's teachings. The book is an amazing encounter with the reality of the world of sorcerers, and explains marvellous things that humans can do when their perception is changed.

Very insightful into how one should live their life, it gives a different view of the world and challenges the ideas and beliefs that we have be taught whilst also providing simple methods to changing your thinking and behaviours with how we interact with the world on a day to day basis.
I really enjoy reading these series of books, they go far deeper to answering the questions about our purpose than anything else that I have ever read.

very interesting account of a mysterious way or path. Some sound advice has come from reading these books- choose a path with heart and don't indulge yourself!
