Dream Yoga is the art of controling our dreams.
Lucid dreaming means being aware that you are dreaming and being able to control the content of your dreams.
Dream Yoga considers our waking life to be a dream. Thus, the goal is not only to control our dreams but our waking life as well as eventually waking up to our real selfs.
Lucid Dreaming starts the moment you are aware that you are dreaming.
“Our Dream worlds make much more sense and offer many more possibilities when we realize we are dreaming. Thus, an analogous realization in our waking lives would lead to increased understanding of the context of our lives, and greater access to our potentials and creativity”.
…lucidity greatly enhaces your mental flexibility, making it easier to master whatever challenges your dream world presents
We grow in wisdom and inner strength by learning to cope with difficulties. Challenging experiences force us to consider who we really are and what is of real importance.
“When you have found yourself you can have knowledge. Until then you can only have opinions. Opinions are based on habit and what you conceive to be convinient.
The study of the Way requires self-encounter along the way. You have not met yourself. The only advantage of meeting others in the meantime is that one of them may present you to yourself.
Before you do that, you will possibly imagine that you meet yourself many times. But the truth is that when you do meet yourself, you come into a permanent endowment and bequest of knowledge that is like no other experience on earth”-Sufi Master Tariqavi
