Charlie Morley is an acclaimed Lucid Dream teacher in both Europe and South Africa. He follows Tibetan Buddhism which sees lucid dreaming as prepatory practice for death. The sanskrit mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" is also tattooed on his skin - it is a mantra used to enrich the mind with compassion when it is either seen, or spoken. The photo was taken at 3am, the time to wake yourself up during REM sleep to enable yourself to have a lucid dream. His tattoo is highlighted by blue fibre-optics - blue being one of the five colours (pancha-varna) that symbolises a peaceful state of mind, a part of the mantra word Hum, and is the colour of the Medicin Buddha for healing. I met Charlie after being diagnosed with my illness and have been greatly affected by his presence in my life since.
