The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge


  • belongs on the spiritual level of experience; a person is capable of suggestion in dreams as soon as he at least momentarily rids himself of his ego; he then finds within himself the power to control others, subject them to his will and change dream images as he wishes; however, the enticing power of suggestion is very treacherous and one should not use it for any reason on the spiritual path, since he is not sufficiently spiritually mature for his will to be identical with God's will.
