Pure desire is one of the core principles of a high level of practice. The practitioner already knows what exactly he needs from one technique or another. He strives to directly achieve his aim through a combination of specific, focused desire and recall of the state. In other words, lucid dreamingr now strives towards a desire to accomplish or experience something, and not towards going through rituals in pursuit of some vague goal.
In order to achieve something, the practitioner now simply wills it. It is obtained without any other actions. There is no longer any point to most of the techniques, which only become necessary in special cases when they are the only way to achieve a result in difficult situations.
