Don Juan and the Art of Sexual Energy by Merilyn Tunneshende

This book offers a great perspective into dreaming and its hinge on "sexual energy". Merilyn Tunneshende proposes exercises in the Nagualist tradition of intentional dreaming. Showing practitioners how to direct their intent to promote healing and self realization. In my opinion she is a overly gifted dreamer and what she offers is great insight on the energy body, and its power in transformation.

Although the book is written in an casual tone, its message is heavy. Tunneshende, reaches to experiences beyond most peoples, informing about a reality that is not most readily accessed. She imparts the stories of power revealing the archetypal Conjunction in the Divine Feminine and Masculine

Her work, is related to Carlos Casteneda's, and he appears in the book as Carlo Castillo. I believe that she is the character that he refers to as La Gorda in his books, a suspicion. In this aspect it offers a fresh continuation to the saga of these enigmatic figures, theirs deemed successes and failures. Mainly, that she through her impeccability, which has largely to do with her use of sexual energy, arrives at formlessness. Carlos admits this in his books. And for Carlos the tantamount failure in the path, and death through liver disease, as was revealed in this book.

This book will either motivate you to do a 180 in your life, again, or shake you to fright, you choose. It is a book that is full with contemplation on the nature of choice, and the force of attraction.

happy purposeful dreaming, may you find all the aids and maps to your quest, the universe awaits.

Entering the garden

the garden is a timeless place, where joy is abundant.

I am thankful for the countless visits i was afforded to this patch of fluorescent sunflowers.

If you stand in the garden, it surrounds you, and the world stops,once again innocent of form.

Victor Schauberger: a Life of Learning from Nature, by Jane Cobbald

A good introduction to Victor Schauberger, whose most popular work is observations on the life and nature of water. His work, persisted against the pseudo-scientific understanding of his times and has broadened the scope of my personal identification with this ultimate elixr; mystifying and prompting me to deepen my questions.

Schauberger exemplifies an artist whose work is based on the understanding of nature, expressing the hidden aspects of his observations through writing, drawing, and sculptural inventions. This book is rich with his drawings, most showing the pulsating spirals which depict the movement of water. He is also deeply interested in the egg-shape, and its functions, " Every force... unfolds itself and springs forth from the original form of life, the egg".

Through his observations, looking deep into the Bavarian forests, he created inventions which he proven worked with nature, upholding her and expressing the abundance of life. He was suspicious of people in authority and of academics. One of his main frustrations was man's dependance on the combustion of fossil fuels for energy. He worked to create a hydrogen engine, in conjunction with his observations on the effects of temperature on water.

Victor Schauberger, supported by a lineage of foresters, is staying relevant through the distribution of his ideas by son Walter Shauberger and the multitude of those who have found the life giving inspiration in his dedication to the planet, and the essential refinement of technologies.

Much thanks!
stay inspired!
