One more point: Lets quit worrying about what don Juan intended as most hard core critics would argue that he is a fictional character. Is it not more accurate to view it from the perspective of what "don Carlos" intended? In the end these ideas where presented by Castaneda in the way that Castaneda intended, no matter who his teacher may have been. A more than cursory glance will show that these books are more than a simple adventure story and that they promote a teaching in and of their selves.



my practice is to write while things happpen and review, in that way I am emulating little don carlos and his original practice (as a student), he got into lots of trouble for writing.
many of my allies emerge from paper and ink, or have a velum aspect or goo aspect. the mix of flatness and the shiny wetness pervades my complex.
my other practice is to immerse and observe without writing.

love casteneda and really appreciate that you brought him back into my life.

The warriors way fits with any religion or spiritual practice I have ever been attracted to. Taoism, Christianity, Buddhism, Shamanism, Science,psychology, Hinduism, Tony Robbins, Eckhart Tolle, Grudjieff, Crowley, Tim Leary, Ram Dass, and the list goes on.

I appreciate the way Carlos tells it, it spurs me on to believe in myself and work towards my personal goals. I am a solitary warrior so I may love whoever I choose. I do not have to be attached to the outcome. I can love freely with no obligation.

I find that same fact to be true also. The deeper one goes and the more one learns about different paths, the more one sees how truly complementary and overlapping they all are.  Different words, same worlds.

I’m a solitary warrior too. Maybe we should open a club for solitary warriors to hang out with other solitary warriors?  :grin:
