Without a Guru

An Account of My Lucid Dreaming
  • George Gillespie


As I came out of the jungle I approached a missionary bungalow. I seemed to be in either India or Africa. I told the couple who came to the door that I was only dreaming and wanted to know where I was before I woke up. They said nothing. I went into the house and looked for maps that might indicate where I was. I found some maps, but they were inconclusive. In another room, I found two old friends to whom I told my problem. They did not respond. I thought at the time, “You know, I can just open my eyes and make you disappear.” Soon I woke up.
