Q. Master, You talk about dreams. Do we have to pay attention to our dreams?
M. Yeah, you do, sometimes. If you feel that it is a kind of forewarning, then you take precaution accordingly. If not, just forget it.
Q. If we make some mistakes and we feel guilty in dreams...
M. Sometimes whatever you think in the daytime you dream in the night, and that's Okay. Just very normal. Because you didn't wash yourself enough before you sleep by meditation. Also, sometimes you read newspaper or you hear something or you see something bad or hear some previous life experiences that are brought into your dream. So there are various kinds of dreams. The best thing is just you pray to the inner Master power to help you, whatever. If it is a bad dream, it'll protect you. And if it is a last impression from your last life, please help to clean it and meditate more. And if it is a good dream or good luck (Master laughs), wait for the bright future, if it ever comes. We meditate and we minimize a lot of bad things, bad influences for us. And sometimes in the dream we pay off karma, too. Say, for example, last life you killed somebody, and in this life you're supposed to get killed by him. But then because you meditate well and you keep your precepts, and then you are sincere, so the Master power within you will erase the bad effect of that karma and then make you die in the dream, only. Understand? So, many of them are experiences also, just like when you meditate you see visions.
Q. Dear Master, I'm married, but I sometimes have dreams of being with other beautiful girls. How do I prevent these dreams? Am I creating heavy karma? Please tell me.
M. It's alright! Just enjoy your dreams okay?! (Laughter.) Just don't do it in the reality. Otherwise, your wife will not let you enjoy it. And keep it a secret. What can we do with dreams? Right? Forgive yourself. It's okay!
Q. Dear Master, I had a lot of nightmares in childhood. Now the nightmares are gone, but, I still dream frequently every night. Please tell me are these dreams involved with my karma?
M. Maybe you had a very rough life before, um. You lived in truly nightmarish life . Therefore, the influence still lingers up till now. Well I sounds like advertising manager, but enlightenment is also for everything. If you want to live a fearless life, and dreamless life, then, of course enlightenment is the answer.
