"How did you get here?" Listen to Cobb from Inception

"You never really remember the beginning of a dream do you? You always wind up right in the middle of what's going on...Think about it Ariadne, how did you get here? Where are you right now?" These are words of wisdom for lucid dreamers. I must remember and meditate on these words before I go to sleep. I did the WILD method this morning and got so close being lucid, but I blew it because instead of asking how I got there which worked last time, I trusted my ability to evaluate my surroundings and concluded that it was not a dream. I was in a hospital and going to the pharmacy and when I looked at the door there was a misspelling and I thought "well it's only one letter off, but maybe it's dream" So I felt the walls, touched the door handles and looked around. Conclusion: No way, it's too real, it's not a dream. WRONG! Then I found a door with the correct spelling "O.K. there it is" I thought. Then I was even more convinced I was right. Another missed opportunity Listen to Cobb next time!
