Is there a point on the art of Lucid Dreaming,when you can actually master it? How long can it take? Which one is the 'master method'?
I would like to hear you opinions and, for comparing to myself, how good are you now in Lucid Dreaming (eg. I can do a WILD succesfully at any time, I have a MILD per week, etc.)
In my opinion, you can never reach like the 'peak' of lucid dreaming, instead you reach a point in which you're almost sure that you'll lucid dream,want it or not.
So guys,what do you think?
In my experience the day you feel you've mastered anything is the day your ego sets a trap likely to bring you crashing down.
I dont think its possible to do it 100% of the time but by definition you can master your own personal potential (otherwise it wouldnt be your personal potential)
I feel I am at a point where I have almost mastered recgonising when I am in a lucid dream, since I have been studying maths a lot and studying philosophy I have a pretty good grip on whats real and what isn't, all it takes relaly is actually having a vivid dream where I can be aware. I have also mastered a lot of dream control and fear in dreams, for instance in my last dream I had a non lucid dream where I was thrown into a snake pit, as I lay on the ground I noticed 3 snakes advancing on me and instead of getting up and running I faced them. However I think having this primitive urge to just fight them is a sort of fear, im working on simply letting them come to me and showing they wont hurt me, thus destroying all power they have.

Well said. Reminds me of Socrates and the Oracle of Delphi for some reason...
I'd also add that I would have complete access to my own mind whilst in the dream, complete access to my true self, my higher self, my self without an Ego, whatever you may call it. This is a goal outside lucid dreaming too, meditation. To be able to view myself for exactly what I am and not have to justify anything, just know I am what I am and it is good. I guess I can't rant all I like, the end result of my ultimate goal is Satori.
In any case, the answer is yes. There are yogis and practitioners in the west that have the ability to lucid dream any time they sleep, or simply drift in a state of calm where REM sleep is occurring but you aren't vulnerable to illusion. These are extremely profound states that can only come from years of practice and going through difficult trials. However, you can make enough progress to lucid dream once per night in far less time.
