I have a personal interest in lucid dreaming and so I do my own research and experiments. I like to share my findings and give my opinions and get into discussions about this topic. I recently ran across a question asking, “Is lucid dreaming a sin?”. My immediate reaction to this question was disappointment and frustration.
To me, this question is very annoying. There is no way to answer this question for everyone. The answer to this question is going to be different for each person as it depends on two things:
This could be further narrowed down to just, what you believe is a sin. The thing that is disturbing about the question being asked is that the asker obviously doesn’t know what the definition of a sin is in their life and is looking to someone else to find that answer.
First and foremost, I strongly urge anyone who has this question to find out within themselves the definition of what a sin is. And by this I mean, do not take the word of anyone or anything. Your whole life and the world you live in is defined based on your decision. If you choose to give that decision up to someone else, then you are at the whim of someone else’s world view.
I have a really hard time with this question because I know there are two types of people in the world. There are followers and non-followers. I know the typical opposite of follower is leader, but there are actually people who are not followers and not leaders at the same time.
If you are a follower, then it is as easy as taking the word of any source that you trust. If that be your religious leader, your parents, your teachers, this blog, some random book you found or who knows.
If you are a non-follower, it is very likely that this question would not even cross your mind. However, if it has, it is a matter of coming to a conclusion about what a sin is and if lucid dreaming fits within that definition, you have your answer.
Now, I will tell you what I think. In my opinion, from all I have gathered about what a sin is, lucid dreaming is NOT a sin.
You are more than welcome to disagree. There will be no hard feelings from me. I might be slightly disappointed in you, but you can’t please everyone.
I would absolutely love to hear what you have to say about it. Please let a comment about it.
Until next time, happy dreaming to you!
