The Three Only Things are extraordinary resources for seeing the field,and give us fabulous ways to play it.When someone you meet on the road asks you what this is all about,you could simply say,"It's about playing better games";to quote Robert's last paragraph in the book.

Format: Hardcover
How many times have you wished that you knew exactly step by step how to change your life or the particular action that would lead you towards success? That perhaps someone would drop off a nice manual (with full colour illustrations) detailing exactly what you need to do to live a healthy, happy, fulfilled life. Likely, far too many.

Unfortunately, there is no such text. Still, that doesn't mean there isn't an excellent resource available to us. The truth is that we have all the guidance we need right here and right now. No guru is necessary and there's no fancy equipment to buy. To make full use of this resource, we only have to delve into three things: our dreams, coincidence, and imagination.

The Only Three Things asks the reader to become aware of themselves, their unique potentials, and open to all that the world has to offer. So often in our striving, we lose track of our original intention. We forget that happiness isn't defined by having the most toys. Our views of life and living become narrow. We become closed to the opportunities that life brings.

I felt lighter after reading this book. I used the author's exercise asking for guidance on a particular problem that has been on my mind of late. I was pleasantly surprised by the result. Within half an hour, the universe gave me three very strong reactions. Even in my stubbornness, I couldn't dispute the answer.

Take Back and Revel in Your Authentic Power! 14 Sept. 2007
By Jeni Hogenson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What Robert Moss offers us through his book, "The Three Only Things" are keys to an ancient way of living our power and truth that have been disregarded by our culture for too long. You'll find here that the mostly unknown stories behind great men and women like Joan of Arc, Leonardo DaVinci, Abe Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Harriet Tubman, Albert Einstein, Wolfgang Pauli, Architect Frank Gehry, Carl Jung and many more, point the way to these "Three Only Things" and how they inspired, informed and guided their success. The book's numerous examples through history, ancient and modern, help us to understand that many of the treasures of political and social leadership, science, literature, arts, and technology have been powered by dreams, coincidence and imagination. Best of all, we have access to that same source of information and guidance in our lives, and this is what is demonstrated so simply and beautifully in this book.
There is example upon example of the power of these `Three Only Things' in the daily lives of ordinary people who have taken the time to observe, record and consider their own everyday dreams and oracles. You'll find many simple processes, games and suggestions for how to develop these skills for yourself. The stories are both inspiring and thrilling when you realize the possibilities we have for our own lives in the way of guidance, healing and creativity. I imagine many will also find the section on "Missing the Dream Dimensions Of Islam" to be eye-opening and instructive. For me it points out how much we "Don't Know" about the dreams, motivations and passions of our neighbors around the world and asks the question, "Why haven't we taken the time to find out?" Robert Moss's numerous books on dreams and his signature techniques of "Active Dreaming" offer us powerful ways to cross the bridge of ignorance and confusion to a real gathering place of dreamers and imaginauts where we can understand much more about our world, it's future and how we can ensure it remains a sparkling treasure. I encourage you to begin walking your path to truth, personal power and beauty by dipping your toes into this incredible resource for your life. "The Three Only Things" is a jewel.

Do You Remember What is Truly Important? 30 Aug. 2007
By Jane Carleton - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the book to read. If I were to choose which of Robert Moss's books to read first, I would pick this one. After you read this, you will want to read his other books. The Three Only Things reminds us of our Big Story, the one that is hunting us, showing us how to live our best lives. This week I was enmeshed in a personal trauma that caused me to temporarily lose sight of my larger goals. I began reading this book and within a few pages, I was able to see another way of looking at my situation. I decided to take immediate action on the vision I saw of how things could improve, and I was so glad I did. The problem is not resolved, but my way of dealing with it has changed for the better, and I know things will work out. I saw that magic does happen, even where I least expect to find it. This book is full of cool exercises to play with, in the midst of deep insight and amazing stories. You will see magic unfold in your life when you look for it. This book will change your life.

Do you believe in Magic? 30 Aug. 2007
By Nancy Neff - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Robert Moss has written several excellent books on Dreaming. I found this book to be his most staightforward & least "out there" regarding how to work with your dreams on an everyday basis, especially for those who haven't done a lot of this before. The section on Coincidence will teach you to recognize & benefit from these not-so-random occurrences, to guide you to a better path, or just confirm that you're already on the right one. My favorite section by far was the one on Imagination; I liked it so much I'm reading it again. It will inspire you, empower you to reach for what you want in your life, & truly make you believe in Magic. And YOU will be the magician!

I highly recommend this field guide to the imagination! 9 Oct. 2007
By Robyn Johnson - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you're feeling pressured by clock time and would like to re-awaken to the creativity and magic embedded in everyday life, this is the perfect book to read.

I felt my energy expand and brighten as I absorbed the rich variety of stories, wisdom, and guidance so aptly offered by Robert Moss. "The Three Only Things" is a fascinating, well-written field guide, story book, and reference book, all in one--a distillation of soul wisdom that speaks directly to the reader in a personal way. I have eagerly awaited this treasure, having benefited from and enjoyed Moss's earlier books. All are full of post-it flags, and kept close at hand by my desk. I re-read them regularly and discover new insights every time.

Moss' research skills and training as a past history professor enrich his narrative in a unique and satisfying way. His Chapter Notes, Bibliography, and Index are unsurpassed. There are so many gems in this book. One of my favorites is the Epilogue. I will return to those 7 pages again and again for encouragement to live daily by these guideposts:

* The Way Will Show The Way
* Hold To Your Vision
* Pay Attention ("Energy flows where attention goes.")
* Don't Give Up
* Remember To Play

I appreciate Moss' approach to the field of dreaming, which is practical while not sacrificing the spiritual depth of the subject. And the wit and humor in his stories and exercises helps to curb my tendency to become overly serious about dreaming, and to REMEMBER TO PLAY!

A Manual for Living 1 Oct. 2007
By Jane Knox - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Robert Moss is a scholar, storyteller and excellent writer. His latest book, The Three "ONLY" Things, is my favorite of his numerous, interesting books. It deals with dreams, coincidence and imagination. For me, it is a manual on how to live my life. In the Introduction he lists the nine powers of dreaming, the nine rules of coincidence and the seven open secrets of imagination. Robert reminds the reader that our night dreams and our day dreams gift us with a bottomless treasure chest.

Our lives are filled with meaningful coincidences, synchronicities, if we would only pay attention. Robert suggests we look to these for valuable guidance. Such occurrences demonstrate something larger operates in life and that we are all connected.

The imagination section is powerful. Robert gives numerous ways in which to use our imagination positively so that we can bring healing to ourselves and others as well as create wonderful possibilities in the world. The book is inspiring, practical and fun reading.The Three "Only" Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence, and Imagination
