Be That Lucid Dreamer…

If you are a lucid dreamer then basically you would know you are dreaming while dreaming. Science would tell you that this has its benefits & disadvantages. But let’s look at the bright side of being one.

  • Jealousy and hatred cannot take you in as your dream characters are all YOU in different forms and shapes.
  • Fear cannot possess YOU as there is nothing to lose or gain in a dream.
  • You can steer your dream the way you wish.
  • You could take risks.
  • While the mind creates different schemes; you still will have control over the way you feel about it.

If you research more on this, they also tell you how to become one(if you aren’t one already 😉 ). But do we know this very life is like a dream?

We have to pretty much remember this when we are wide awake. We came in from something whole and we become something in between and we leave all our identities back here when we exit into which we came from(just like a dream).

Even while we are here we move from infancy- adolescence-adulthood-old age and finally to death. What we think we are is constantly changing, isn’t it?

Life is just like a dream and they say the time we spend here is the least/temporary compared to the eternal time. How can we say that this world isn’t real/permanent? Because anything ‘real’ doesn’t come with an expiration date. Nor would it change. Just like how a ‘fact’ remains a fact at all times.

Although we say we love Krishna and are ready to wage war against those who think otherwise, yet we don’t wish to be Him, do we? We treat him like a God because he lived like one. In spite of him giving away his secret, we still don’t ponder over it. What a shame.

I strongly believe in the maxim 'I am what I think'. A Business degree holder taught to pose 'What's In It For Me?', is now seeking to understand the Real Self. My journey is what you will read here.

  1. Hey.
    I want to ask a question, like if I study in the day time.
    Then how can I dream about the same in night consciously so that I can perform better.

      1. No. Absolutely not.
        Who am I, to pull your leg.
        You have immense knowledge and experience.
        I was just wondering, how I can use this lucid dreaming for self improvement.
        That’s all.😊

      2. Oh no, no, no! Not even close :). I am just getting to know the power of my own ignorance.
        Anyway to answer your question- for any idea to flow into the other state, the only deciding factor would be the size of the web your mind is willing to create around that particular idea. And also how passionate is it..

      3. So. Do you also succumb to desires of eating junk food?
        I thought you to be a sage.
        Anyways, I got you. But the fact here is neuron firing is genetic so maybe higher the firing better the cognition and better the web.
