but there is one that is truer and less subject to delusions and illusions - to begin, you could read up "Meditations" - a select compilation of Jiddu Krishnamurti's writings on the subject.

I had 2 with Obama, being taken to the white house, even flying in a jet, having his aids around, that really upset me. One with Bush trying to tell my son he must obey him, and then just recently, having a checkup done by the Queen of Winsor, who was this gentle doctor but in the end, she said something along the lines that gratitude or prayers, don't remember, to god or to her, for it was basically the same. So I woke up quite upset thinking she thinks she is god does she? That could be a cover dream for something else, like a medical exam by greys....but inception comes to mind, and programming.

Some people are trained in dreams, and are shown various things that push them further along a good path, such as my sons. My friend who was literally taken to various bases at night time, would become lucid tied to a chair, break out with the group and rescue the hostages in underground bases. He would be jumping from one landing to another and seemed to have interesting guides.edit on Mayam13 11 20 by Rextiberius because: (no reason given)
There are many ways of going home - it doesn't really matter which one you take ultimately; it could be the highway, the footpath in the forest, taking a gondola ride, taking a plane, a taxi, bicycle, plain walking, running, jogging, hot air balloon...
and it doesn't matter what vehicle you use either - bullock cart, car, motorbike...
and it doesn't matter how expensive, big, perfect and beautiful the vehicle either ... mercedes, rolls royce, electric car, 4-wheel drive, mini van, Porsche, Lotus, vintage car, broken-down car (old banger!), sedan...
and it doesn't matter what make, brand, country of origin also - Volkswagen, Toyota, Proton, Ford, Bentley, Ariel, Citroen, Peugeot...
So, you can see that the list is really endless... Indeed, in the literature it has been written:
"Traditionally the are 84,000 Dharma Doors - 84,000 ways to get Enlightened... certainly the Buddha taught a large number of practices that lead to Enlightenment..."
"Because Sakyamuni Buddha taught in a very personal manner, it is said that he gave 84,000 messages during his lifetime. The number 84,000 is probably arbitrary. However, it is meant to convey the idea that the Buddha exhausted all the possible ways for humanity to reach enlightenment. The number of paths is an expression of the universality of the Buddha-Dharma."
Within the 84,000 paths, one path is most suited to you. This is the expression of the personal aspect of the Buddha-Dharma. In other words, these 84,000 paths will allow everyone to become a Buddha. Taken together, the 84,000 paths are what has is known as the Dharma; the Truth to which a Buddha becomes Enlightened. The Dharma is the content and source of the Buddha’s Enlightenment. It is the great repository of wisdom that allows the Buddha to help all sentient beings reach the same state of Enlightenment. The Dharma is said to be a storehouse."
There is something for everyone as each person has uniqueness and if you look at a tree, you will notice that no two leaves are alike. Each person has to realize his/her unique potential (personality). The very nature of Nature is diversity, apparently infinite. Nature tends towards diversity, always. Hence, when there is any attempt to control, indoctrinate, it goes the opposite way, which is politics and not religion or spirituality!
So if dreams work for you, by all means explore that territory because it is right for you. Someone else may find that crystals work better and that's fine too.
Once there was this butcher who got enlightenment by following just a simple formula given to him by the Buddha. He was asked to be keenly aware every time he delivered a chop to the meat with his cleaver. One day, just as he was paying attention to the chopping action, the "explosion" happened. Sounds incredible doesn't it?
Perhaps, the secret lies not so much in what method, what formula, what technique, etc... but rather the single-minded passion or intensity accompanying the action!
