    問:
      我想問下清明夢的問題。所謂清明夢,就是你在做夢,但同時明白,眼前所見不過是場夢,於是變成了你控制夢,而不再是夢控制你了。我一直有清明夢的體驗,而且學會了隨意作清明夢,想問下,這種夢如何幫助我學《奇蹟課程》,完成聖靈的目標?

    答:
      這種能力大有用處。耶穌心靈訓練課程的一大目標,就是幫我們成為清明的夢者,也就是覺悟到,我們以為是真實的其實不是真的,我們只不過是夢見自己以個體身份遊蕩在物質世界:「你正安居於上主的家園,只是在作一個放逐之夢而已;你隨時可以覺醒於真相的。」(T.10.I.2:1)此處耶穌指的並非我們夜間所作的夢,而是日常生活的體驗。但是,他同樣告訴我們,日常生活與夜夢並無實質區別:「你一生的光陰都耗在夢中。睡時的夢也好,醒時的夢也罷,不同的只是形式而已,內涵則毫無差別。它們代表的都是你對真相的抗議,也就是你自以為能改變真相的那個牢不可拔的瘋狂念頭。」(T.18.II.5:12,13,14,15)

      你既然能作清明夢,耶穌探討夢的這些章節,想必你都可以心領神會。作夢是《課程》的重要主題,有好些章節專門解釋夢的本質與目的,比如第十八章(T.18.I,II,III,V)這四個小節,第二十七章(T.27.VII,VIII)的兩小節。以上章節的關鍵都是「目的」,這也是學員應當重點用功的問題。我們平時是在維繫小我的目標還是聖靈的目標?小我想要我們沉睡下去,繼續作夢,永遠都別發現人生其實就是夢一場。而聖靈想要我們明白,分裂之境不過是一場夢,絕非真實境界。因此耶穌是這麼形容奇蹟的:「奇蹟並不喚醒你,它只會幫你看清作夢的究竟是『誰』——奇蹟幫你看清是你在作這個夢,而且夢中情景都不是真的。」(T.28.II.4:2;7:1)

      有心覺醒的話,我們可以從接受聖靈的目標開始,學著看出大家休戚與共:我們都因離開天堂可愛的家鄉而痛苦,都渴盼能夠不受永恆罪罰即可返鄉,而聖靈正代表了救贖原則,祂會實現我們的心願,保證等待我們的唯有愛,只因我們從未真正離開過。這便是我們最終覺醒以前夢境的樣子,耶穌這樣描述它:「一個溫柔之夢,夢裡與弟兄重歸於好,因而療癒了他的痛苦。」(T.27.VII.13:4)

    Q #1146: This is about lucid dreaming, the ability to realize while dreaming that everything that is happening is only a dream. Then you can control your dream and your dream stops controlling you. I’ve been experiencing this phenomenon and I've learned to produce it at will. How can this kind of dream help me with A Course in Miracles and the Holy Spirit's purpose?

    A: It can be very helpful. A primary objective of Jesus' mind-training program is to help us become lucid dreamers, which means becoming aware that what appears to us as real is not real - - we are just dreaming of ourselves as individuals in a physical world: “You are at home in God, dreaming of exile but perfectly capable of awakening to reality” (T.10.I.2:1).Jesus is not referring to our dreams at night, but to our experiences in our daily lives. Yet, he also tells us these are not different states in terms of their content: “All your time is spent in dreaming. Your sleeping and your waking dreams have different forms, and that is all. Their content is the same. They are your protest against reality, and your fixed and insane idea that you can change it” (T.18.II.5:12,13,14,15).

    Being a lucid dreamer, you probably can relate very much to Jesus' discussions of dreaming. It is a major theme in the Course, but there are several sections that focus specifically on the nature and purpose of the dream: four sections in Chapter 18 ( T.18.I,II,III,V) and two in Chapter 27 ( T.27.VII,VIII). Purpose is the key word, and that is where our work as students is centered. Are we upholding the ego's purpose in our lives or the Holy Spirit's purpose? The ego wants us to stay asleep and to continue to dream, without ever realizing that that is what our lives amount to. The Holy Spirit wants us to realize that we are merely dreaming that we are separate; it is not the truth. Jesus thus says of the miracle that it “does not awaken you, but merely shows you who the dreamer is. . . . The miracle establishes you dream a dream and its content is not true” (T.28.II.4:2;7:1) .

    We can begin the process of awakening by accepting the Holy Spirit's purpose of learning to see each other as sharing a common interest -- that we are all in pain for having left our loving home in Heaven, and we are all desperately hoping there is a way back that does not involve eternal punishment. The Holy Spirit thus represents the Atonement principle, the fulfillment of our hope that what awaits us is only love, for we never truly left. This is the dream Jesus refers to that precedes our final awakening, “a gentler dream, in which his suffering was healed and where his brother was his friend . . .” (T.27.VII.13:4) .
