Dreaming True: How to Dream Your Future and Change Your Life for the Better

Marshall McLuhan, Author, Robert Moss, Author Pocket Books $24.95 (384p) ISBN 978-0-671-78530-7
In his earlier works, Conscious Dreaming and Dreamgates, Moss introduced readers to his unique perspective on dreams, whether they appear in deep REM sleep or the ""twilight zone"" between sleep and wakefulness. Now Moss travels further down the path of remembering, interpreting and ""working with"" dreams to guide the reader toward seeing possible futures in them and consciously choosing between outcomes. Rooted firmly in his belief that anything that can be dreamed can be manifested (except changing basic personality traits and ""karmic traces"" or extending one's allotted time on earth), he explores in detail how to remember and employ dreams for the improvement of both individual and community life. Moss presents a detailed and thorough step-by-step method of dream journaling, sharing dreams aloud with other people, asking for guidance and going back into dreams at will to gain further information. He rejects blanket analyses and contends that dreaming allows us to communicate with a higher spiritual plane of reality, which cannot be used for such trivial projects as predicting winning lotto numbers. Moss also offers an especially provocative discussion of current scientific experiments involving time travel and the possibility of using the dream-state to affect not only the future, but also the past. This manual provides a fresh look at a timeworn topic. (Sept.)
