HOW TO PASS THE TEST IN OUR DREAMS? – IT IS THROUGH DEEP DOWN CULTIVATION AND FULL OBSERVATION OF PRECEPTS
In the process of learning Dharma and spiritual cultivation, how do we deal with the setbacks that we encounter? At times, though we do our utmost to observe the precepts, however, we are often defeated by some tests that we underwent in our dreams. Under such circumstances, how do we pick ourselves up and be motivated?
Master Jun Hong Lu:
It is very simple. Should you be defeated by a particular test in your dream, it is apparent that you have not achieve a deeper level of cultivation. You need to cultivate deeper within yourself, and completely adhere to the precepts, and will no longer be committing anymore wrongdoings in this world. If in your dreams, you feel you should not commit certain act, you definitely need to tell yourself that this is something you cannot do in this world. Do you understand?
