A wise man told me that I could control my dreams.  He explained how he did it.  I gave this some thought.

Awake – you are conscious.  Sleeping – you are subconscious.  When you can’t wake up – unconscious.

So I had a dream where someone was chasing me.  I decided to run swiftly.  I had to get to a door.  I didn’t look back nor look to the sides. I knew I had to stay calm and focused.  I made it to the door and got to the other side, and I was safe.

So I believe that people can control their dreams.  They just need to try.
