I do whatever I planned to do before I fell asleep. That, for me, is usually changing the scenery or flying away to find a better scenery. For some reason, the background of my dreams are dark and kind of spooky so I try to get away to a nicer place :D
Are you dreaming?

From the replies here, it sure looks that way. Flying is cool and I've flown in lucid dreams before, but to me walking around is so much more awesome. Just to feel the ground under your feet is so amazing and unbelievable, it is just exactly the same way it feels when you are awake. I guess I'm in the minority.
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? Morpheus

yea, I wanted to start a topic about this, but I'll just say it here. Why do people want to fly so much? I rarely fly in a lucid dream and actually have a fear of heights and gravity is hard to overcome in my lucid dreams. BUT flying is overrated, and there is so much more one can do. But for people wanting to lucid dream, it seems flying is THE thing to do.

It is fun though, don't get me wrong, but it does seem to be the stereotypical lucid dream thing to do, but for me and probably some others, it actually isn't.
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.

unfortunately... lose my lucidity :( takes practice, I'm getting better every night.

well if i succeed i usually stare at my hands in amazement. actually losing my lucidity is enjoyable when i'm staring at my hands, they'll go from a stable almost realistic set of hands to trippy non-lucid dream hands. its just wonderful becoming lucid, really.

I think that almost everyone likes flying or at least has tried once directly because is something that we will never be able to do in real life (unless you're a superhero or in the future something changes), and subconsciously because nowadays we live in a society full of stress, we need to follow a strict routine: wake up, go to work, return home, relax a bit, sleep. Flying can mean escaping, going away without caring of what's around you, just feeling free, that and, of course, the feeling of the wind on your face, the scenery.... At least I think that is the main reason, am I right?
