 Re "Lucid dreaming is a result of your meditation practice.": 

 Yes, that's possibly a factor, but though meditation has sometimes given me 
that sense that I'm "awake" all night - ie, there is no "gap" in the continuity 
of awareness - even if I'm in deep-sleep consciousness (or dreaming), it is 
more a maintenance of the witnessing state. 
 

 But the lucid thing is more an ego trip - it's my relative self playing with 
images from the subconscious but with that critical self-awareness intact that 
is always there in the waking state but is normally absent during dreams.
 
I agree with emptybill's post about "maintaining the waking and dreaming states 
at the same time". It's probably what really does happen during some types of 
mental illness.
 

 I think anything that happens that feels unnatural or is waaaayyy out of the 
ordinary is probably not something you want to pursue very hard. I mean, to be 
dreaming and awake at the same time is sort of like feeling hot and cold 
simultaneously or happy and sad at the same time. They are two separate 
feelings or states so why not allow them to be separate?

 S3, 

 Lucid dreaming is a result of your meditation practice.  It is the 
manifestation of transcendental consciousness in the dreaming state.  MMY has 
stated that TC can be automatically maintained in the waking, sleeping and 
dreaming states.  But there are junctures in between these states where pure 
consciousness exists--that is, the state of no thought.
 

 In this particular discussion, MMY asked a rhetorical question: what would 
happen if a person can both maintain the waking and dreaming states at the same 
time?  Personally, I don't know the answer.
 

 Also, IMO, dreams are influenced partially by the transit of the Moon as it 
progresses through the various zodiacs on a nightly basis.  IOW, the Moon has a 
magnetic effect on a person's brain, thus influencing various parts of the 
brain that includes personality, memory and inherent personal behaviors.
 

 On a more esoteric levels, it through dreams that a person can get a personal 
message from the unified field.  It is through dreams that one gets some subtle 
insight into your past life karma, and possible events that will happen in the 
future, both near and far.

 So last night I had a lucid experience while dreaming (it's happened a few 
times before - always involuntary as I've never bothered to follow the 
"techniques" recommended by devotees of this perception). At least I assume it 
was a lucid-dream experience - I suppose one could have a normal dream which 
included the false thought that one was lucid when in fact one wasn't (if you 
can follow that explanation). What's more, I woke up (for real), mused about 
the dream for a minute, then fell asleep again and immediately went back into 
the same dream landscape in the same self-conscious, lucid state.
 

 Now I'd heard that when in a lucid dream you can alter the "dreamscape" to 
suit yourself. So you might find it amusing to flip over into being a Zero 
pilot on a kamikaze mission and diving into the Golden Dome in Fairfield. 
Whatever floats your boat. Anyway, though I was lucidly self-aware that I was 
indeed dreaming I couldn't change the story narration unfolding before me so 
just left the dream to run its course while absorbing the novel experience.
 

 My question is: is there some trick to getting the dream to change to suit 
your whim or is it a case of practice makes perfect? Or maybe most lucid dreams 
are like mine? Or maybe my will power is feeble compared with my imaginative 
power and others have a more dominant will?
 

 Anyone had a similar experience?
