When I say lucid dreaming, you say: fun! control! limitless!
They’re right about the control part. Or so far they are, because actually you aren’t always in control like Lence said in his most recent blog. The dream directs you and not the other way around. So much for the control part.
Limitless is probably the most right. The only limit is your fantasy and this is in most cases limitless, but not always, you can’t imagine the size of the universe, you can’t possibly imagine it except if you traveled across. I think it might be hard to imagine to imagine a 5th dimension, it is insane. But this means it is very hard to imagine, but if you were able to, you could access it through your fantasy.
Now fun is the part I want to talk about. I think it’s essential to do something else than have fun in your lucid dreams. In a dream you can ignore your ego (moral). This is what attracts people to the whole idea of lucid dreaming, being able to ignore laws, be reckless and have unlimited fun. But this is great but on the same moment your downfall. If you focus to much on having fun and do this every single lucid dream I think you miss something great in the whole concept of lucid dreaming. Because I think that lucid dreaming is way deeper thing. When you keep focused on having fun you will get stuck in a realm. You have to get past this fun principle.
You have to confront yourself and search inside yourself. Search for things that are stuck in your head for a while, maybe stress, problems, fears and such. I think that this way you can achieve much more out of your lucid dreams in a more mental way.
I think that everything in the dream mirrors a part of you, every single dream character, the houses, the landscape and everything. There is a certain correlation between the dream and the dreamer. Happy people dream happy dreams, angry people dream angry dreams. Try to talk with your dream characters and reflect your dream. You can really learn something from your dream and it is worth the time.
I think that if you are able to step out of the pleasure principle and go deeper inside the lucid dream and don’t stay on the surface. I think that if you do this you reached the next level and this is a level worth the effort.
