Mother Teresa also wrote a book called A Simple Path. I find a certain synchronicity in that happening. Perhaps the paths to reach enlightenment are not so different after all. BTW, I find much truth in both the writings of the Dalai Lama and Mother Teresa.
There have been some times that I had either a lucid dream or an out of body experience. I'm not really sure which but they remain fixed in my memory. Perhaps I'll share them some time. At the time of the most recent dreams I was investigating some pseudo-Native American teachings. For example, thanking an animal that you have hunted for food and clothing for giving its gifts to you. Meditating does seem to increase lucid dreaming in my experience.
"Beloved let us tolerate one another. For tolerance is of God and everyone that tolerates is born of God and knows God. He that tolerates not, knows not God for God is tolerance." 1 John 4:7,8
