First it was Tuesday Lobsang Rampa (The Third Eye); now it's Carlos Castaneda. Curiously it was T. Lobsang Rampa who led me back to the Catholic Church when he said in one of his works that no one can really master the nuances of a new religion; the thing to do is to find meaning in the religion that you were born into.
