Most people tend to regard their dreams as possessing little or no significance, randomly-generated mind-movies which sometimes feature people, places, and events from their daily lives. Others, however, imbue dreams with utmost significance, seeing within them profound reflections and understanding of waking reality. The latter approach is certainly closer to how humanity has interpreted dreams throughout recorded history. It is apparently only in recent times as militant materialism has become the dominant paradigm that dreams have been relegated to the same backwater as consciousness itself – mere epiphenomena of a purely biological brain.
But things are changing. As cutting edge consciousness research and advances in quantum physics continue to reveal a fundamentally-interconnected cosmos, levels of reality beyond the five-sense, three-dimensional – such as the dream space – are beginning to re-assert their importance in our so-called ‘waking’ lives. At the same time, however, dreams are in danger. The all-pervasive electromagnetic fields of modern technology and toxicity from diet, drugs – legal or otherwise – and the wider environment are rapidly diminishing both the conscious and subconscious mental capacities of millions. Initiation Into Dream Mysteries, therefore, is a timely wake-up call for us all.
