Had to get up a lot earlier than usual since school's back in, so it's just a couple of fragments this time, no tasks.

I'm going to break my Internet detox to say: I think the Internet can be really bad for you, because it lures you into thinking you're having social interaction while in fact you're deprived of it.

In Buddhism, it sometimes said that waking life is a bit like a dream. I think there's a waking life equivalent to lucidity in a dream. In a dream, you become lucid by seeing the dream for what it is. In waking life, the equivalent of lucidity is seeing past your self-deceptions and seeing what your problems really are.

No points to claim for this, I think, but I had a profound revelation. Thank you o Obliverum.

No SciFi tonight, but a funny sequence of failed RC, FA, RC, brief lucidity and another FA. I'll update the record later for meditation, personal goal and rc (if I'm diligent ).

I'm averaging about 5 hours sleep a night since the start of the competition, which is barely enough for dreams. sadblauw Hoping for some REM rebound tonight!

I often think that the reason why we are not normally lucid in dreams is, simply, because we are not lucid in WL. We very seldomly look at our surroundings with a sense of wonder or inquiry, and we bring this mindset in our dreams.

In many religious traditions it is said that even in our waking state we are "asleep" (hence the idea of spiritual awakening). For me, the first step towards "waking lucidity" is the recognition of this lack of awareness. And trying to observe myself and my surrounding with an active, inquisitive mind is the first step towards dream lucidity.

This attentive outlook on reality awakens a certain acuity, similar to that experienced in meditation. The senses become sharper, there's an intense perception of the body, of space, of sensory impressions, and awareness of oneself.

Does this relate to your experience at all?

(Mmmh, I feel I might have gone slightly off-topic here... my apologies! grin2)

This was one of the first things I learned when I started lucid dreaming. I felt like I was awake for the first time in my life. I had been sleepwalking through life before, never being in the moment and aware like I was at that point, after a lucid dream.

im enjoying this discussion, thanks for kicking it off Susan! lucid dreaming also taught me a lot about what awareness means in waking life. the part about being honest with yourself is harder... i can be honest with myself about most of my own failings but when it comes to other people i always somehow manage to find excuses for them when i should know better. i wonder if dreams can help with that.

also its great to see so many lucid dreams! go team! :D

the librarian greedily accepts the notebook from Koal44, expecting it to contain many great stories, or perhaps even a publishable diary... yes, literature contains some great notebooks indeed!

Not much today. But I do have a question for you, Obliverum. Le Bateleur claimed the "reality check in dream" (🤔🤔) twice in one day (and in one dream)! This seems like something that should only be claimable once per day. Is it claimable multiple times in one day?

General Points:
  • ✍️ dj entry
  • 🛌 reality check
  • 🚗 2nd reality check

Stats so Far:

the librarian expresses satisfaction with the comforting consistency of Letaali and PremiumOtter's DJ entries, RCs, and meditations throughout the challenge thus far

i know it may seem theoretically easy from an outside perspective to write consistently in a dj and do an rc and a tiny bit of meditation every day, but we know that these things are not easy, they are not to be taken for granted, and they matter.
