My teacher, don Juan Matsus, said this is guiding me as his apprentice to collect what I considered to be the memorable events of my life…. Don Juan described the total goal of the shamanistic knowledge that he handled as the preparation for facing the definitive journey: He said that what modern man referred to vaguely as life after death was, for those shamans, a concrete region filled to capacity with practical affairs of a different order than the practical affairs of daily life, yet bearing a similar functional practicality.
Don Juan considered that to collect the memorable in their lives was, for shamans, the preparation for their entrance into that concrete region, which they called the active side of infinity. In this book written immediately before his death, anthropologist and shaman Carlos Castaneda gives us his most autobiographical and intimately revealing work ever, the fruit of a lifetime of experience and perhaps the most moving volume in his oeuvre.
It compels us to believe that don Juan is one of the most extraordinary figures in anthropological literature, a neolithic sage.
It helps us to accept, from the continent we stole, a mysterious gift of wisdom”. His insights paved the way for the future evolution of human consciousness. We are all deeply indebted to him. One can’t exaggerate the significance of what he has done. It helps us to accept, from the continent we stole, a mysterious gift of wisdom. If Castaneda is correct, there is another world, a sometimes beautiful and sometimes frightening world, right before our eyes at this moment–if only we could see.

Get it, read it, believe it or don’t. This book and the others have changed my life. People can talk trash all they want about Carlos, he never changed his story.
His ex wife thought it was silly that people doubt his tales because when he came home to her while they were married, he told her the crazy things as they happened to him. Even as a mythology, as some feel it is, this book is profound and beautiful. Great book from an amazing enlightened shaman. Great book that covers one of the most interesting aspect of Don Juan’s teaching.
The information about inorganic beings was most interesting to me. Having read all CC’s books over the years, I was pleased to learn of this one recently. I enjoyed it perhaps the best of all his works.
It is considerably less cryptic than some of his earlier books. Carlos is an engaging story teller and The Active Side of Infinity is no exception. Here, though, he is not concerned with erasing his personal history, so he presents a lucid re-accounting of his most momentous experiences with Don Juan.
I was especially impressed with his description of the “foreign installation” which lock the average man into his endless cycle of self reflection. If you only buy one Carlos Casteneda book – this is it.

I have read many of the Castaneda books and enjoy their dark blend of humor and mystery. Was Don Juan a real person or one that was invented? This a replacement book as I have had this book for years. Lost mine in a recent boating incident. An excellent read for people who are trying to grow spiritually. See all 74 reviews.
