I'm reading Laberge's book on lucid dreaming and he quotes someone who says it's like if you live for 100 years, you live for 200 with lucid dreaming because you are alive while you are sleeping.
I get you completely. I have the same urge to share something this good to everyone. However, I think you reach the most people by simply sharing the idea and let them think for themselves if they want more.
If it works wonders, it would show; making people wonder why you shine with such good vibrations. Let the subc. give you all the inspiration you can handle and act on it. Dreams give recreation, inspiration gives purpose, new ideas make money. Use it I know I will.
First deliberate LD: 4/1-2012 (DILD).
Lucidities after that: 26/3-2012 (DILD during nap), 1/6-2012 (DILD during nap),
I think I found people just like me.
I guess lucid dreaming is not hereditary, or else we would all have family to talk to about it. When I describe it, people listen, nod their head, say, "That's interesting", and then change the subject.
You can't convey exactly how it feels. I don't think the best writer in the world can. And if you could, people would become understandably jealous, and wouldn't want to hear about it.
I am interested in conducting experiments in my Lucid Dreams, testing their limitations and sharing them with people who understand. I never could before and this forum will be a great outlet for that.
I've had some great, vivid, memorable dreams that weren't lucid and they were great. Better than some lucid ones I've had. But once you become lucid and aware, it becomes, for all intense and purposes, real.
Perhaps our waking 'reality' only feels real, because that awareness, or lucidity, that we tend to lose in sleep, is always turned on when we are awake. So whenever you are lucid, whether it be in sleep or awake, is what we call 'real'. However, we can become unlucid in reality. If you get really drunk or do other drugs, you can wake up the next day and not fully remember what you did in 'reality' and it seems like a dream. So it can go both ways.
Reality can only be perceived by things that can perceive it, and it is subjective. I'm sure an ant, sees this universe much different than I do.
Even Albert Einstein once said, "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."
I don't like to think about it too much and be blissfully unaware. Sometimes it feels like someone is pulling the wool over my eyes, but it is some comfortable wool!
