An excellent book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dreaming Yourself Awake: Lucid Dreaming and Tibetan Dream Yoga for Insight and Transformation (Paperback)
Allan Wallace brings words of clear light knowledge onto this subject of observing the flow in dreams affects us with his deep insite.
The inner & the outer flow of events both those that arise from our every day life and those hidden beneath the surface are displayed in this book.
The Diamond Sutra states "Like a tiny drop of dew, or a bubble floating in a stream;
Like a flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
Or a flickering lamp, an illusion, a phantom, or a dream."
Words echoed by Lama Tsong Khapa in his prayer "The three principle aspects of the path" with the simply statement comparing events that arise like a bubble as is sung by the local West Ham soccer fans "I'm forever blowing bubbles my dreams just fade & die.
Lama Tsong Khapa says The fluctuation of our body and life is like a bubble of water; remember death, for we perish so quickly. After death, the effects of black and white karma pursue us as a shadow follows a body. Finding certainty in this, I request inspiration to always be careful to abandon even the slightest negative action and to complete the accumulation of virtue.
