isn't it interesting how a person can feel the wind, smell the wind, hear the wind, and even create some wind LOL!..... but not see the wind. Yet can still believe in the wind and it's power. The same goes for my HP, whom I call GOD. There are too many complex issues in this world to think that everyting started by chance. And when you have an OBE/Encounter, that totally seals the deal. This life is but a test. We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings having a human experience. Once our bodies give way, our spirits "shed the glove" and reunite with the one almighty who created us. I would submit that cultivating some faith in things unseen would do a person good in getting along. Faith that education will help you to get a better job, Faith that the potential energy in a log can keep you warm, Faith that ......................

I pretty much completely agree with this. I think life is a created simulation of sorts and we can see from lucid dreams how good we are at creating such "virtual realities". I believe that there are a lot more of these waiting for us when we finish here for all sorts of purposes concerning our spiritual evolution and we will be participating in their creation/operation.

Good advice, even if it's not a traditional religous style faith in God. I agree in the value of believing in things we can't experience with our 5 human senses which are pretty limiting anyway. Even those who don't accept the idea of faith would agree that in lucid dreams we get exactly what we believe we will get. How is that not faith? There was one post where someone was saying that when ever they want to drive a certain car, they first reach for the keys. Or another is when you want to go somewhere, find a door that when you open it, that place will be on the other side. And what are these exercises called: Faith!

I havent been so good at summoning stuff in lucid dreams, I keep trying to find a gun so I can test out what happens if you die in a lucid dream ( im not suicidal just curious to see if you simply wake up or...?), but I can never seem to get it right

One experiences death agonies and then wakes up after dying.

I agree completely. I find it funny sometimes when people say that science is not built on faith but in fact all it is, is faith. Faith that since something has worked a billion times and has continued to work that it will not fail in the future. The entirety of science is built upon faith. Sorry if I'm ranting a little. Also I would like to end this by saying that my sister used to be allergic to dairy and eggs. But one day when we were at a British church some of the leaders prayed for her and that very day she was healed and has continued to have eggs and dairy product for her entire life.

I agree with you guys about how humans can not sense everything, but I don't think that people should use this as evidence of a god. We have no idea what might be beyond our range of sensory.

I'm an Ortodox Christian like most of Serbs and I do beleve in God. I don't believe in every aspect of the Bible, but I do believe in most of them.

Dreams, however, don't have almost any connection with my faith since I see dreams as a product of mind and subconscious.

That's like saying "I don't understand how the magic trick works... so it must be real magic."
