Why did you write this book?

The way “Dreams of the Magus” was developed was by my own reception of the teachings and attitudes it presents. As I received – I learned and documented. After I had assimilated what I had been given by my teacher at the time, I began to live what I had learned. This was all very personal to me, and the document that has now become “Dreams of the Magus” was shelved because the information was doing its work.

Some years later, I was compelled to bring this manuscript back out into the clear light of day so I could review where it was I came from, and how I had ended up where I was. This is when I realized that what I found was actually a kind of manual for conditioning the mind into allowing more abstract conditions to flourish within it. I knew that I was not that remarkable of a person, and if I had been changed by this, anyone could be changed. While it is important for each of us to find a relaxed sort of freedom within ourselves, it is absolutely essential for humans as a collective organism to take our next big step if we wish to avoid near self-annihilation. We must develop into something much greater than we are, for today we are really nothing with, as John Anthony West says, “our nuclear bombs and striped toothpaste.”

What is the basis of the “Dreams of the Magus” message?

My premise is that the root of all our problems in this world is due to one thing: we embrace a reality created by convoluted thought which runs the minds of men in circles, and drives us into a state of insane behavior that has quickly become the status-quo and labeled as “perfectly normal.” With basic, but challenging self-dialog and self-examination, the paradigms and overused pathways of thought can easily be changed, but the questions one asks themselves must be questions that take the mind away from its predictable routes and highways of preconditioned thought. The right questions must be asked, and sometimes asked without a question mark. “Dreams of the Magus” does this.

Why the title “Dreams of the Magus – Where Angels Fear to Tread?”

First, I would discuss the subtitle – “Where Angels Fear to Tread”. This alludes to two things: One – we must maintain a sense of humor and lightness in all we think and do. This phrase cannot be taken seriously, and Two – as humans, we occupy a specific reality that does not exist as it is anywhere else but in the physical realm. Other dimensions do exist, however, with their own states of being, and with beings who cannot experience what it is that we experience in this “physical world”. The phrase must now be taken seriously. This is our world, and our responsibility.

The title itself, “Dreams of the Magus,” presents the idea that all is dream. All we experience is dream and the source of that dream is the Magus (the Wizard, the Magician, the Creator) that is within us all, as proven by the fact that our world and universe does exist to those who witness it. However, this world exists in a very fuzzy way much like a dream, and it is each day when we awaken, we awaken to this dream that we so confidently call reality.

Who would be interested in reading this book?

Those interested in the philosophies being expressed by the current Quantum community, those who are drawn to the feminine ways of Taoism and Kaballah for understanding of themselves and the world, those who practice the Magickal and Alchemical ways for spiritual growth and self-transformation, and those who are left unsatisfied by the thoughts and attitudes given them by our “modern” society.

What is the “Dreams of the Magus” about?

To put things in a proverbial nutshell – It is about anything, it is a journey. “Dreams of the Magus” is a journey home, a journey back to where we began. It is a retracing of our own paths; one designed to help us see the things we missed along that road that got us where we are today. This is not, however, a technological journey – for our technologies are only a result of our attitudes that developed them, or our attitudes that settled on premature success only to cease development. It is not a journey that must take us back to a place or time where we forsake everything we have created. “Dreams of the Magus” is a philosophical journey, as it is this journey that is important now, for all things come from the way any given culture views its world. No thing, idea or concept comes into being without its philosophical foundation – be it Shakespeare or Chrysler – it is all a product of wisdom or lack of it.

Why should people purchase this book?

It is informative, revealing and cryptically entertaining. “Dreams of the Magus – Where Angels Fear to Tread” compels us to make changes that we have avoided for too long. It is inspiring and simply empowering, and is unique in its presentation – effectively utilizes methods of teaching that can confound the rational into a more flexible and balanced way.
