Q: I was reading through the messages and
I've a question. This is regarding how one can control the sub-conscious
mind into not having 'wet-dreams'. Most of my friends agree experiencing
such incidents. But some of my friends - whom I consider to be spiritually
more 'pure' - seem to never have experienced this. I personally see this as
a lack of control of emotions and thoughts. Can you comment on this please?
A: Wet dreams are usually the product of immature erotic sensitivities,
and are a cousin of premature ejaculation. These tendencies are both mental

using the tools in these lessons. This can be done either alone or with a
partner. As we develop more control of our sexual functioning this will
improve the situation of both wet dreams and premature ejaculation. Of
course, accomplishing this will give us rising confidence and benefit us
mentally and emotionally as well.
It is just a matter of conscious
development, moving beyond natural immaturity in our nervous system to
natural maturity. A combination of advanced yoga practices and tantric
sexual methods can bring many benefits along these lines.
The guru is in you.
