And knowing thyself has HUGE ramifications on waking life!
I wish I could say that out loud to my family, but I have to bite my tongue and understand that they simply don't get it. I have patience though and we should just all lead by example. I don't have anyone else to turn to either so that's why I come here!
Nothing's too crazy for me, buildit. I read your post about 'know thyself', and I didn't reply because all I would say is, "Yes!"
Well said Hagart. I do find myself very disturbed by the fact that people always say that we spend 1/3 of our life sleeping/unconscious when sleeping can in fact mean the very opposite of unconiousness but people just don't understand that. Psychology is considered a psduoscience and that's why the subject of dreaming which is primarily derived of from psychology isn't "credible" in the science world as a "measurable process" which I don't agree with at all. and that's why its not taken seriously by our community I theorize anyway. But im getting off topic it hurts me to know that I cant convince my family that there dreams are important and that they should look into them and try to understand them as it could help solve real life problems for them but I too bite my tongue... ARE WE ALL AS LUCID DREAMERS EVERYONE ON THIS SPECIFIC SUBJECT DOING THE RIGHT THING BY BITING OUR TONGUES AND NOT GETTING ON THE SUBJECT WITH OUR FAMILIES? ID LIKE TO KNOW YOUR OPINIONS THANK YOU.
