Re: on Lucid Dreaming

Lucid dreaming: that experience which when circumstances allow we realize enough to wake up in the dream state and know awareness is traveling without the physical body. What happens next is dependant on certain factors but most often for the short and the long term it is a sign of increasing awareness.

( w my regards and appreciation for Turyia's note, my take and experience is that------)
upon becoming lucid while sleeping doesnt cause the lose of the particular dream, unless one is not ready and or doesnt have the necessary concentration to strictly observe the subconscious, so as not to be distracted into egoic fixation again and or fall into complete unconsciousness.
When you first wake up into another state,while asleep, the first thing you notice, and keep noticing for a while, is how exactlingly similar the feeling of solidity of that state is to that which we experience in what we commonly call waking consciousness. Its really surprizing.

Id say some of the confusion and argument about dream yoga, like with all the other powerfully active tecniques, is cause they are more than actually just tecniques. They are personel mirrorings, revealing natural outcomes, of the awakening awareness' experiences.

At first we seek to verify and objectify awakening. Later we understand its cutting edge and irrepressable presence are what clothe the play, so we cease playing and begin to watch a real actor do their thing.

If someone is interested in lucid dreaming, increasing the length of daily meditations will assist the lucid dreaming to happen with little effort. Cept for the added tapas from increasing the meditation, kind of a catch 22.

Our delima is our motivation. To the degree we have released desire for and expectation of awakening experiences, the process is empowered and realized. To the degree we pursue awakening practices for the experiences we fail to completly release connection to th egoic waking life we have created here, thus make it dififcult for our awareness to focus in on these new experiences.
