"There is more to lucid dreaming than just experiencing superficial things like sex or flying. I gain a far deeper understanding of the nature of my own existence and the reality that I perceive every day. Interesting stuff."
"This might sound freaky, but really: I use my lucid dreams mainly for having any kind of sex I want. There can be occasions when it's even more enjoyable sex than in waking life.

"For the first time I am eager to go to bed and sleep. My friends ask me whether I have become addicted to sleeping in order to dream lucid all the time. Not at all, sleeping doesn't fascinate me. I like being awake. I like being conscious, even while sleeping. "
"I will never forget my first lucid dream. At one particular moment in the lucid dream I was talking to my mum and told her that she was part of my dream. Because she didn't really exist I tried to convince her she was just a dream character. Haha, a truly exhilarating experience."
"After having learned how to lucid dream, flying become my number one lucid dream activity. After some practice runs I was able to invent all kinds of tricks in the air. No monster or fighter plane will ever catch up with me if I would encounter one in my lucid dreams! "
"I love playing music on my cello and rehearse performances in my lucid dreams. It still amazes me how my mind could so beautifully internalize the sound of music. Although it doesn't sound perfect, it feels like I am rehearsing at the actual stage where I need to perform tomorrow night. More self-confidence as a result."
"Interestingly, I don't have lucid dreams if I don't feel healthy, relaxed and inspired. Applying lucid dreaming techniques is not like taking a pill. So no, I don't think lucid dreaming could be addictive in the sense of drug abuse. My lucid dreams occur when I feel happy, confident and motivated about myself."
"There is this urge in me to live a different life than the one I am living now.

I was amazed at how quickly I gained insight into the things in my life that I needed to change. I truly learned how to dream."
"I cannot stand the often esoteric nature surrounding lucid dreaming. As if it were some kind of mystical experience. Well, it is not. Lucid dreaming is a phenomenon that is researched and free for anyone to enjoy in every way."
