THERE is a kind of conscious telegraphic communication going on incessantly, day and night, between our physical brain and our ever-awake inner consciousness.
“The brain is such a complex thing, both physically and metaphysically, that it is like a tree whose bark you can remove layer by layer.”
“Each layer is different from all the others,” says H. P. Blavatsky, “and each having its own special work, function, and properties.”
All real dreams that are remembered, and “present a sequence of events,” she maintained, “are due to the vision of our higher [mind] Ego.”
“At a time when an apple was something Steve Jobs gave to his first grade teacher,” writes a reviewer, “Clancy McKenzie, M.D. happened upon a discovery that would forever change not just his life, but his patients’ as well.
“It hit him like a bolt of lightening. Without so much as a hand-held calculator, McKenzie unearthed the origin and mechanism of serious mental and emotional disorders.”
Many of Dr. McKenzie’s most powerful insights were directed to him during his dreams, and experienced later as voices on awakening, and during the day at unexpected moments.
The Brihand Aranyaka Upanishad [p. 12], describes of this inner dream god: “Leaving the bodily world through the door of dream, the sleepless Spirit views the sleeping powers.”
Then clothed in radiance, returns to his own home, the gold-gleaming Genius, swan of everlasting.”
“You do not have to be a yogi and meditate for years in a cave to receive an enlightened answer,” says Dr. McKenzie. “When you fall asleep you reach just as deep a level of consciousness.
“All you must do is take one minute at bedtime to formulate your question, and one minute when you awaken to retrieve the answer.
“Practically anyone can do this the very first night.”
