I recently began to practice lucid dreaming. Iâ€™d read about lucid dreaming, and Iâ€™d had some early half successes in my teens and early twenties, but something about the experiences scared me. It seemed too out of control to think of everything, I mean everything, as a dream. Did that mean I had control over everything? During one early (waking) meditation experience, I had an almost overwhelming sense that I was losing any choice over what I could or could not believe. Not quite a voice in my head, nevertheless something said, Submit! There is nothing but God! You must believe this or you will go mad!
