I’m jealous of lucid dreamers!
- Some people seem to just be born with the natural gift.
- Some people work on it like their life depends on it.
- Some don’t care.
- And there are some (like me) who care, but don’t go out of my way to make them happen.
My rationale for not being a lucid dreamer (more often) is that I’d rather that lucid dreams fall in my lap. Is that so wrong?
Here are my excuses/rationales:
- My/our ego runs the show of our waking lives…so why not give it a rest at night?
- Why not just let the dreams take us where they want us to go-let them happen to us-instead of us happening to them?
- And honestly, by the time my head hits the pillow at night, it’s Snooze Ville for me…I’ve been working all day, and I’m tired. Is that so wrong? A girls got to sleep, right?
