well according to buddhism and the budda that are lives are dreams and we exist in two states awakesleeping and sleeping but either is still asleep not really awake to the universe and everything, even the air and space. I sometimes realise it that everything is a vibration and it is not so much what you see but the content of it. It is hard to explain.
Also to do with the story above I was reading today about stuff to do with shamans in this book I have been reading lately about lucid dreams. And it states that to be a shaman you have to be born into it, but you also have to want to do it after which you have to be like a master mediater and then a master LD but the extent of this is you going into a state of rebirth but this is commonly known as schizophrenia but as part if the initiation to be a real shaman you have to find the right path and act on both evil and good at the same time.
The medicine practise Homeopathy is based on this that to treat or heal someone you need to apply posistive or negative energy. Thus this goes back to what I was saying before about the vibrations around us. Of course this could mean anything and I might be wrong but it is hard to dissprove as shamans have been healing ppl for 1000’s of yrs. Also whilst I was in amsterdam last year I met a shaman there and he said he had treated 145 cancer patients and cured 90 and when they next went to see a doctor, the doctor said there was nothing wrong with them. Also he didn’t do anything magical all he did was give them a solid decent diet and some herbel rememdies. But to make them you can’t be anyone but a shaman, i certainly respect them as i have been in the presence of one.
And in response to the guy who started this topic, I think your friend needs to mediate or do tai-chi it will sort his energy out and unclog some ports. He just needs to relax and clear his mind.
