“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” C. Jung
While there are some things one can do to shorten the evolutionary process – it still takes time. Awareness, patience, curiosity, open-mindedness, communication, agreeing to not take everything personally, and tenacity – are, to start – important details to engage daily.
That’s a lot to be mindful of on a regular basis. But if I just become those things, then I won’t have to think about doing them and I can think about other stuff – like learn how to lucid dream regularly.
I had my very first lucid dream the other night. I suddenly realized – in the dream – that I was dreaming. I looked around and said, “This is a dream.” I was as awake there as I am right now. And I wish I could do that every night because what a cool place to explore when sleeping – My own mind!
