"All human beings are also dream beings.
Dreaming ties all mankind together."
She’s just waiting for the summertime
When the weather’s fine
She could hitch a ride out of town
And so far away from the lowdown
Good for nothing, mistake-making fool
With excuses like, ‘Baby, that was a long time ago’
But that’s just a euphemism
If you want the truth, he was out of control
But a short time is a long time
When your mind just won’t let it go
Well summer came a long and then it was gone
And so was she
But not from him ‘cause he followed her
Just to let her know
Her dreams are dreams
And all this livin’ is so much harder then it seems
But girl don’t let your dreams be dreams
You know this living is not so hard as it seems
Don’t let your dreams be dreams
Your dreams be dreams, be dreams
“Dreams be Dreams” - Jack Johnson
So, yesterday, I successfully engaged in lucid dreaming. I wasn’t trying this time. I kinda gave up/forgot about that a while back. It just happened. I woke up in the morning from this good dream and I was still tired so I didn’t want to get out of bed just yet and I kind of closed my eyes wishing, as we often do, that the good dream would just pick up where it left off. That’s usually near impossible for anyone without the individual actually twisting the story in the way he or she wants to once consciously aware of what he or she was just dreaming about. Anyway, my dream continued and I didn’t even sway it or anything! And then I woke up a little, and then remembered that you’re not supposed to open your eyes and look around and really engage with reality so that the dream can continue (but by that time, I had already opened my eyes a little and then quickly shut them) and then the dream eventually picked up again and I just sat there with my eyes closed, so content in my accidental achievement.
