Religion and Lucid Dreaming??June 21 2001 at 3:23 AM
I know this must be regular subject, however this is my first post. I was wondering what the thought were on this, and also any newbie tips...
Religion, a form Christianity, with a twist of wiccan, and Buddism....dont ask. My savior is Jesus, son of God.
any input appreciated~
I find a lot of the Buddhist ideas very interesting, and perhaps partially believe in some of them (reincarnation, for example), but, I'd really consider myself agnostic.
Did you have a question about lucid dreaming (since it was in your topic)?

Was your question going to be:
How is lucid dreaming seen from a religious point of view?
Well, if it wasnt, then I'll ask it. ;-p Sorry to hijack your thread!
By the way, I'm really open minded about everything at the moment... although I still probably believe that Christianity was a social tool designed to control the working classes (damn Sociology).

Meditation can definitely help get you in the right mindset for lucid dreaming. Also, in your day to day business, really pay attention to your surroundings. You'd be surprised at how often we just go through life subconsciously (this is especially noticeable while driving). Just clear your mind and observe everything around you, using all of your senses.
As for getting started with lucid dreaming, just read everything on this site, and check out some of the links. :)

The example of driving is a good one.When we notice that we are not paying attention it is powerful. "Holy Crap I could have kiled myself". Ten minutes later we are lost in thought again. It's only in this kind of casually dangerous activity we get such a clear insight into how untrained our attention is.
As far as the OP goes, certain sects of Tibetan Buddism has "Clear Light Dreaming" as one of it's main meditational focii.
It can also be imagined that much of human-written "Words of God", where honestly written, came out of seeking god in a dream. There they found their own highest ideals. I guess that would be a personal opinion.

but actually i don't believe in god.. nevertheless i had my first lucid dream and personally i think lucid dreaming is more related to creativity
