Carlos Castaneda

Anyone read his books?

They're sort, yeah.

Great reading, that's for sure.

He claims it's all 100% true. And of course, there is no reason why it shouldn't be so. It might be all fiction too, as well. Or something in between. Anyway, it's certainly an ashtonishing cognitive journey he is describing in his series. Worth reading, for sure. It might give a new angle to your perception of the world.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I read his first book back when I was a very young man, cant recall the title since I was out of my freaking mind on peyote!

Tried to *see* your hand while you slept, Che?

Few people know but Michel Foucault did the same in Death Valley during those years.

Regarding the series of books. It was good entertainment while it lasted. How real? Only the author knew.

i read Carlos Casteneda's a don yaqui teachingor smethign or other the first book in the series.

Does it really matter if its iction or non- fiction , i dont really think it does! its the message that it portrays and the pure excitement of the bok ..the diffrent perspectives in shamanism and philosophy that orignates in south america

i also found some of the images vivd and gave me adrealine rushes ..when mescalito turns intio a bee and then starts buzzing at him

but it would be fascanating if people could turn into birds etc ...just like the diaberlos ..something tells me through that this book is real

Lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. Do you think when Jesus comes back he's gonna wanna see a ****ing cross, man?
