Becoming Lucid, Self-Awareness in Sleeping and Waking Life
Excerpt

"Where other books on lucid dreaming focus on the dreaming, this book focuses on becoming lucid in both the sleeping and waking state. Dreams can offer an easier path to lucidity because of the contrast between dreaming and lucidity: you think you’re not lucid in normal dreams, so you understand what you’re trying to accomplish. In truth, we don’t know what lucid means, we don’t really know the final goal. That doesn’t matter too much, as it still gives us a path to follow. The process of learning to lucid dream is a heuristic, like this book is a heuristic: it’s a means to an end, a means for exploring consciousness. — from Introduction, page 1.

"Going beyond lucidity is understanding that being lucid is about being aware, not being in control. Awareness is organic; awareness grows. It may germinate in a dream, and lucidity may help shed the seed-coat, but the promise of awareness lies in what it can grow into. Nurturing a new awareness involves recognizing and attending to it, as nurturing any new life requires... To go beyond lucidity is to recognize there are emotional areas in which you are not able to do either. To go beyond lucidity is to maintain awareness as you enter into states where you have never been before." — from Beyond Lucidity, chapter 9.

"Let's do an exercise of going beyond mind. It's a simple matter of putting yourself at the end of things and then going further. We’ll create four situations like situations in lucid dreams where we face the author of our conceptions and ask, 'What’s really here?' ” — from Hypnotic Session 9: Welcome to The End.
