dream a little dream
#1
in my all my years of dreams i have never witnessed this before. once when i was maybe 7 or 8 i dreamt that i woke up late for school, then i actually woke up late for school only not as late as in my dream. about a week ago i dreamt that i was dreaming. i dont remember what it was about unfortunately. im just curious if this might have any sort of significance or if there are other places where i can research this topic. i would say that this dream led to my registration on this forum. any feedback would be appreciated. thank you.

I couldn't say what kinda significance it holds, but I can relate. The first time I did something in my dreams I was amazed. It made me so excited, to think that there was a new world for me to explore, and just when I was beginning to think that life was boring. Unfortunatly I became morbid, and thought I was special. Anyway "The Art of Dreaming" is Thee book for dreaming. But read all of Castaneda's books, he's just plain good reading.

"Unfortunatly I became morbid, and thought I was special." [sic]

Is this what don Juan means by "morbid"? I was under the impression that the word meant more-or-less "diseased" -- as in one might be diseased if one obsessed about dreaming (i.e. did not maintain sobriety).

I would have put thinking one is special under "self-importance". And I would also put thinking oneself NOT important under "self-importance" -- in the guise of self-pity. Both are a distortion, don't you believe?

I, of course, seem to think myself quite important since it appears I am trying to make fine points out of semantics -- not to mention my little "sic" above -- except I mentioned it. We all have our diseases.

What does sic mean anyway? Huh

I think yes, that's what he meant. Or at least that's how I experienced it. My dreams had a dark, foreboarding, feeling to them and I was definetly obsessed. In one of his books it mentions that dreaming attention is stored in a spot in the roof of your mouth, and to access it you maintain the tip of your tongue on it. I would stay up at night trying to keep it there.

Hi. In the past when practicing dreaming I have found myself at what Castaneda calls the first gate of dreaming where I am in darkness neither awake nor asleep. At these times I remember to place my tongue on the roof of my mouth. This always results in my body seeming to vibrate violently waking me up. So now I dont bother.

Do you mean you've given up on dreaming?
