The World As You Dream It

The World As You Dream It, by John Perkins.

John Perkins’ book, THE WORLD IS AS YOU DREAM IT is one of those rare books that tells a riveting story at the same time as it provides deep insights into what makes us who we are and the world what it is. I was so riveted to this book that I couldn’t put it down for a second until I finished reading it. The big idea in THE WORLD IS AS YOU DREAM IT is outlined by shamans in Ecuador who describe to Perkins the difference between living one’s fantasies and living one’s dream — and how this difference has enormous personal and global repercussions. Healing involves changing one’s dream; replacing a dream of illness with one of health. As one shaman tells Perkins, “I don’t heal. I simply help them change their dream.”
