What, if anything, do dreams tell us about ourselves? What is the relationship between types of sleep and types of dreams? Does dreaming serve any purpose? Or are dreams simply meaningless mental noise--"unmusical fingers wandering over the piano keys"? With expertise in philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience, Owen Flanagan is uniquely qualified to answer these questions. And in Dreaming Souls he provides both an accessible survey of the latest research on sleep and dreams and a compelling new theory about the nature and function of dreaming. Flanagan argues that while sleep has a clear biological function and adaptive value, dreams are merely side effects, "free riders," irrelevant from an evolutionary point of view. But dreams are hardly unimportant. Indeed, Flanagan argues that dreams are self-expressive, the result of our need to find or to create meaning, even when we're sleeping. Rejecting Freud's theory of manifest and latent content--of repressed wishes appearing in disguised form--Flanagan shows how brainstem activity during sleep generates a jumbled profusion of memories, images, thoughts, emotions, and desires, which the cerebral cortex then attempts to shape into a more or less coherent story. Such dream-narratives range from the relatively mundane worries of non REM sleep to the fantastic confabulations of deep REM that resemble psychotic episodes in their strangeness. But however bizarre these narratives may be, they can shed light on our mental life, our well being, and our sense of self. Written with clarity, lively wit, and remarkable insight, Dreaming Souls offers a fascinating new way of apprehending one of the oldest mysteries of mental life.

A world-renowned authority on the history, uses, and power of dreaming, Robert Moss guides neophyte and experienced adventurers alike to open their own dreamgates. Through these gates await otherwise inaccessible realms of reality as well as soul remembering — the "recovering of knowledge that belonged to us before we came into this life experience.” Exercises, meditations, and the mesmerizing tales of fellow dream travelers outline Moss’s Active Dreaming technique, a kind of shamanic soul-flight that offers "frequent flyers” a passport between worlds. In this world beyond physical reality, Moss points to wellsprings of healing, creativity, and insight. As readers move into these different ways of seeing and knowing, they may also communicate with spiritual guides and departed loved ones in ways that transform their everyday lives.

Our lives are mostly composed of ordinary reality—the flow of moment-to-moment existence. In this anthropological study of the Amazon’s Mehinaku Indians, the author achieves an understanding of this part of reality by both observing various aspects of their experience and by relating how these different facets come to play in a stream of ordinary consciousness, a walk to the river. In this way, abstract schemata such as ‘cosmology,’ ‘sociality,’ ‘gender,’ and the ‘everyday’ are understood as they are actually lived.

The fourth drama enters new terrain based on what has been achieved in the first three dramas. The end of those brought about the unifying of the various main characters in a Temple ceremony whereby they consecrated themselves to take over the work of the traditional Mystics for modern times. Up until this point, the dramas had been concerned with personal development, the achieving of spiritual vision, the beholding and integrating of a correct view of Karma. But now the step has to be taken to bring all this into a concrete relationship with the modern world. The task of the Mystics had been to preserve in secret the mysteries of humanity. The task of the new Temple servants is to bring those mysteries to humanity again and make them fruitful in the modern world. This requires, on the one hand, a willingness to approach the elements of the world and interact with them, and on the other, the cultivating of an inner knowledge which will give one the new faculties and strength to do that. The essential question thus arising for all of them, illustrated by the greatly increased role Benedictus plays in this fourth drama, is the question of spiritual help and from where and under what conditions it can come to us. Not only Lucifer and Ahriman are here operating for their own intersts, good human beings and good spiritual beings are working, too, and who these are, where these are, and what relation we can have to them is a matter of the greatest urgency for humanity at this time.

The book is all about simple methods that we can all adopt in order to attain peace of mind and to learn the ways of spirituality. It educates us about being conscious towards the needs of the soul as much as we are towards bodily needs. Following the methods enlisted, one can gain synchronicity of the soul with the higher energy realm.The book highlights factors that create long-lasting effect on the soul. It is all about keeping your 'soul consciousness' awake. This book will help you gain the perspective of the actual reason of human birth and of how one can be free from karmic bondage and be liberated from the vicious cycle of incarnation.The writings emphasise on the practice of mindfulness which leads one to accept life as it is and to vibrate positivity in every situation of life no matter how negative it may seem. The book highlights the fact that we are lost in a different world that has taught us to analyse ourselves as humans searching for their spiritual awakening, whereas the truth is that we are spiritual beings that are trapped within human incarnation which is so stained with materialistic vices that it knows not which path to tread in life.

Spirits, Souls, and Dreams: Poetic Impressions, is a collection of unique perceptions of the author derived from spirits, souls and dreams. The human experience entails living between spiritual heaven and hell, an amalgamation of both spiritual and human origin. Life demands integrating subjective spiritual information from divergent sources along with human emotions, thoughts and dreams, and interpreting this information by means of spiritually impaired objective reasoning. Given these inherent convolutions, we are fallible in judgment and even in our own memories. It is imperative to employ the utmost judiciousness to interpersonal inferences, assumptions, and deductions and with biblical assurance, accept that our cognitive processes are abjectly compromised. It is absolutely essential to accept others without concession. Spirits, Souls, and Dreams is a collection of poetry that reminds us that acceptance is requisite for forgiveness. Forgiveness is indispensable for true love. God is love. Love is God. Only Can I Live To See Only Can I Live To See When The Moon Turns Red I Can Not Imagine Dreaming In My Bed I Want To Fly Above The Sea On A Brand New Morning And Make Clouds My Covering For No Reason It’s Part Of Me.

A unique self-help guide to dream interpretation using techniques and icons from cultures around the world. • Challenges the assumption that all symbols universally signify the same thing to all dreamers. • Includes numerous stories, games, and exercises for inducing, recalling, interpreting, and utilizing dreams. • Extends beyond Jung and Freud to include dream theory from numerous world cultures, including the Temiar of Malaya, the African Ibans, the Lepchka of the Himalayas, and the Ute of North America. Dreaming can be used as a tool for understanding our own consciousness, enhancing creativity, receiving visions, conquering fears, interpreting recent events, healing the body, and evolving the soul. Tapping into the vast dreaming experiences and lore of the world's cultures--from the Siwa people of the Libyan desert to the Naskapi Indians of Labrador--Sarvananda Bluestone challenges the assumption that all symbols universally signify the same thing to all dreamers. The World Dream Book encourages readers to develop their own, personalized symbols for understanding their consciousness and provides a series of stories, multicultural techniques, and games to help them do so. Playful explorations, such as the aboriginal "Sipping the Water of the Moon," teach how to induce, recall, interpret, and utilize the power of dreams. Readers will discover how a stone under a pillow can help us remember a dream and will explore their own dormant artist and writer as they reclaim the power of their sleeping consciousness. Sarvananda Bluestone applies his uniquely engaging style to demonstrate that, with a few simple tools, everybody has the capacity to unleash their full dreaming potential.
