The future will be shaped not only by technology, but also by the liberation of human potential, much of it locked up in obsolete schooling. This book mines the rich cultural legacy of philosophy, folklore, and legend, especially Greek mythology, to understand their inner meaning and their relevance to the dilemmas of a troubled and confused world at the crossroads of evolution. The “Dreamer” explores the art and science of thinking and the roots of creativity nurtured in character and consciousness. Why are people so resistant to change? Why are individuals so often their own worst enemies? What are the skills, qualities of character, and frames of consciousness necessary for success in volatile job markets? How to manage our Life Energy? How to awaken the divine gift of intelligence? Where to find inspiration in the creative process? Why are the arts and culture so critical to the development of the human spirit?

The Dreamer Whose Dreams Came True examines the five aspects of our human nature—the animal, the child, the artist, the saint, and the warrior—and their connections to a creative life.
