I have enjoyed and benefited from all of Robert Moss’ books over the years, but Mysterious Realities: A Dream Traveler’s Tales from the Imaginal Realm may be my new favorite. This collection of “just so stories,” as the author calls it, is fresh, intimate, and surprisingly topical. If you’re like me and find these current times murky, dense, and difficult to navigate, you need this book.
Moss, the creator of Active Dreaming, is a master at walking between worlds and taking us with him. This collection of dream tales (his own and other’s) open new portals for the reader to worlds of myth and magic, imagination and synchronicity. If you’re familiar with active or lucid dreaming, this will take you to the next level – if you’re not, this will initiate you and turn you into an eager student at “night school.” I believe the very act of reading the book will jump start the process, and send you on your journey beyond time through parallel worlds and lives. And the teachers! The gods and goddesses, totem animals and real spirits that may show up to guide or teach you are indeed, wonderful and mysterious.
Pay special attention to the stories about breaking through and dreaming in these turbulent, dense times. If it seems more important than ever now to create the world we want, then to do that we have to first dream it. I believe Mysterious Realities is the roadmap to those realms where the real work gets done.
