Lucid Dreaming Book Challenge Day #6: Enjoy the Journey

If you’ve been following my posts you may have notice I missed yesterday’s post on lucid dreaming for my 30 day challenge. I was fried. Full day of work, picking up my son at school, shopping for dinner, cooking dinner, working on our YouTube project with the kids, doing college work… By the time I was done and realized I hadn’t done my blog post yet, I simply had nothing left. I thought about doing a one line post to simply put a proverbial check mark through that day’s task, but that’s not the point of what I am trying to do here. My intent for the 30 day lucid dreaming challenge is to engage myself in the study and practice of lucid dreaming. I figured that if I had this blog, basically an online journal, that I committed to writing in everyday, it would keep me on task to keep building momentum with my lucid dreaming practice. It’s not surprising I am having trouble keeping up. I’m experiencing what anyone who has similar responsibilities has experienced in the pursuit of a mastery of a skill or practice like lucid dreaming. I’m really just getting out of the gate, hitting that initial resistance, creating new grooves in the path of my life, and moving beyond old ruts. I’m sure you can probably relate to my life overwhelm. Aren’t we are like this to greater or lesser degrees? Overworked, sometimes underpaid, struggling to stay ahead of the never-ending wave of responsibilities that come with being an adult. It’s life. Life in these times anyway. I’m sure there is a healthy dose of dysfunction on a societal and cultural level in terms of how we have created this flow of life that seems to demand so much just to keep our heads above water. We long to thrive and not just survive. Back to the point of creating momentum with my lucid dreaming practice, it seems clear to me that it is just one foot in front of the other, step by step. Tonight I’ll set the intention to see my hands in my dreams and realize I am dreaming. I’ll continue making blog posts everyday, and reading from my lucid dreaming books. I’ll record my dreams in the morning and at least once in the middle of the night. Rinse and repeat. I’ll have the hard days. Then I will get back up and keep walking, enjoying the journey. Enjoying the journey. There’s the key right there. Darby
