    Been pretty sick lately and my dream recall hasn't been very good.
    I had quite a few dreams, some lucid, but the lack of details made them feel unworthy of posting.

    I'm walking on the promenade in Haven on Teraluna.
    Enjoying the fresh air, I walk towards one of the main streets on my way to Yuya's place.
    On the main street I go up a level, ending up one level below the topmost one, with all the houses and apartments.
    This level features mostly shops and restaurants, I sometimes come here with Yuya for dinner.
    It's dusk, so the city is quite lively.

    I pass a shop that sells flowers and I wonder if I should buy some for Yuya.
    They're all on display outside, so I wander a bit around having a look at the different kinds of flowers.
    Some don't look like flowers at all, and some are clearly alive.
    They're all very beautiful and they have a distinct smell.
    I suddenly realize that I have no money, how am I going to pay for these?


    Wait, what? WTF! I'm on Teraluna! How did I not notice that I'm dreaming?
    This surprises me quite a bit and it takes me a few seconds to settle down.
    The dream feels very stable and vivid, but I still rub my hands and try to feel the presence of my surroundings to make
    that the dream remains perfectly stable.

    Looking back at the flowers I see one that is immensely beautiful.
    The colors somewhat match those of Yuya's eyes, I feel they would be an appropriate gift.
    I ask the lady selling the flowers:

    "Would you be willing to trade something for these flowers?"
    "Haha, of course young man, what did you have in mind?"

    I summon my phoenix wings on my left arm and remove one of the smaller colorful feathers from it.
    They fall out occasionally, it'll grow back.
    I hand it to the lady.

    "How beautiful! Please, take the flowers, thank you!"

    That went well.
    I take the flowers and continue walking towards Yuya's place.
    I think about how this dream started on Teraluna, even though I was non-lucid.
    Then I realize I'm wasting time.
    I can see a bridge crossing from this street to another one on the level above me, I'll be able to see Yuya's place from there.
    I blink on top of it, and from there I blink to Yuya's place.

    Yuya greets me, telling me that I'm right on time. Did we set a meeting?
    I hand her the flowers.

    "They're for you."

    She seems extremely happy. I am yet again surprised by the way she shows her emotions.
    She simply doesn't hold back at all. It feels so pure, I've never seen anyone with such a happy expression in waking life.
    Yuya puts the flowers in some sort of vase.
    I notice that the dream doesn't feel as stable anymore, and I attempt to re-stabilize which succeeds.

    "Alright, I promised you we'd visit the library, let's go!"

    The library? Did we talk about this in a previous dream?
    Maybe a dream that I cannot remember?
    Clearly, I can't recall such a dream, but I am convinced that we did indeed decide to visit a library somewhere on Teraluna.
    It must have been a lucid dream I do not remember.
    I get ready to draw my wings but Yuya interrupts me.

    "Let's fly there! We shouldn't teleport into the library, we might disturb someone."
    "Sure, lead the way!"

    I take off and fly next to Yuya, trying to keep up.
    She's accelerating fast, I can't keep up without summoning my wings.
    I remember that in my last big fight I managed to summon my phoenix wings on my back, in full size.
    I wonder if I can do that again and use them for fast flight, just the way I've been using my dragon fire wings until now.

    I try to accumulate some of that pure energy and manage to draw the wings on my back.
    They're very beautiful and very large. They feel somewhat oversized for my body.
    It is VERY easy to fly at high speed with them, much easier than with the dragon wings.
    We quickly break the sound barrier and everything becomes very calm.

    This is the first time I'm really exploring other parts of Teraluna, usually I just stay in Haven.
    It is beautiful!
    There are very high and complex trees growing directly out of the sea.
    They must be over a kilometer high each.
    We slow down and fly down, through the crowns of the trees.
    It is difficult to navigate them due to their complexity.

    There are waterfalls in the crowns as well, I wonder where they come from, are the trees emitting water?
    We go lower and lower and finally fly through a maze of waterfalls leading to a spectacular entrance.
    The entrance is absolutely huge. Fortunately it opens by itself.
    Inside there are the same angel statues as in the entrance to Haven.
    As I pass under them I feel myself passing through a forcefield.
    Makes sense, the library must be protected as well.

    I enter the library in amazement, the bookshelves reach into all eternity.
    There is literally no end to them. Even zooming in they seem to go on forever.
    The library is very well lit, everything is very bright and white.
    The shelves are mostly made out of glass.
    Materials feel very modern, but some shapes remind me of the Victorian era.

    Yuya explains what the different kinds of books are and we wander around a bit.
    She shows me quite a few things which I unfortunately cannot quite remember.
    Then we come to a rather special shelf.
    Yuya tells me there's 1001 books in this shelf.
    They all seem very old, and they are huge.
    Nearly 1 meter high and very thick, probably 1000 pages each.

    They feel very special, there's is something about them that really intrigues me.

    "Are we allowed to touch them?"
    "Of course, just be gentle, they are very old."

    I pick the first of them, it's very heavy.
    I gently deposit it on a reading table and open the first page.
    The pages are so old... they feel like papyrus, and you can actually see how the paper was weaved.
    Everything in them is hand written and hand drawn. They are not printed copies.
    It feels sort of amazing touching such an old book, plus the smell is very nice.
    The title of the first page is in a language I do not know.
    The letters are formed by geometric shapes, but somehow I am able to understand it.

    This book is about the beginning... the beginning of... everything?
    They all are! Those 1001 books, is this the story of this universe?
    The story of the dream plane?

    "Yes, they are, are you able to read it?"
    "I'm not sure. I cannot understand the individual words or letters, but somehow I understand some of it."

    I randomly try to read the first few lines at the beginning of some chapters.
    The first one talks about there being nothing but energy.
    Some chapters further they talk about the first gods.
    I honestly have no idea how I'm understanding any of this.
    The numerous images and illustrations help though.

    The language used to write these is very powerful though.
    A single word carries much more meaning than any languages in waking life.
    Considering this, needing 1001 books to describe the history of the dream plane...
    it just feels impossible like any single person could ever know the whole story.

    "True, but it's not finished yet."
    "Not all books have been written yet, after all we're still living the story written in these books."

    "Then why are there exactly 1001 books?"
    "Because exactly 1001 books are needed to tell the story."
    "But, does that mean the dream plane will end once you reach the 1001st book?"
    "Not only the dream plane, the planes cannot exist on their own, they all exist together."

    I'm very surprised, it is known when existence will end?

    "Hyu... the dream plane has existed for eternities, long before Earth was created, long before your universe was formed."
    "That being said, we've barely filled 400 books."
    "We cannot even comprehend for how long things have existed until now, so there is no reason to worry about any ending."

    "True..."

    I browse through some more pages in amazement.
    Somehow I understand that this language is very ancient and was meant to be universal.
    I think I am able to interpret some of it due to the divine phoenix powers, but I'm not sure.
    I end up getting lost in thoughts and wake up...

      Sounds incredible. From the point of view of the running "dream plot" or however you would refer to it, it makes you wonder if it means the "end" of ALL existence is truly the end of all awareness and perception or if it means the end of the universe(s) as we know them.

      Wow, you are really getting used to the whole Yuya thing. It must be very peaceful. I can't wait until I have regular lucid dreams so I can experience similar things.

      As for the dreams with extreme lack of recall, they are still worthy of being posted.

      Man I have always wanted to go to the akashic records or something similar and just read about the nature of the universe. Was that the akashic records or was it just about the dream plane or something?

      There was no mention of akashic records in the dream.
      I actually had to wikipedia what exactly the akashic records are because I assumed they would "only" be a collection of records of your previous lives.
      This is obviously an incorrect or rather incomplete description of what the akashic records are supposed to be.

      So, I don't know.
      As I said there was no mention of them being the akashic records but there certainly are some strong similarities.
      The book I've opened clearly described the beginnings of the dream plane, but considering the size of the library
      that series of books was just a very minor part of the entire collection of books.
      They seemed to be the main attraction of the library though.

      That's really awesome! How cool would it be to read all of those books?

      Woah, I can't believe I forgot about the library, I have to go back there again!

      It has been quite some time though, I had this dream nearly a year ago, I have a hard time remembering.
      I mean, I had a hard time understanding anything at all given the complexity of the language.
      But here's what I can recall:

      Something caused there to be an abundance of energy.
      The energy didn't come from nothing, but there was nothing before the energy. (I don't know)
      2 (I think) beings formed out of a very small portion of the energy.
      But they were not alive in the sense that we are because life did not exist yet.
      They are referred to as the first gods as they manipulated the energy to create new things. (different kinds of energy I think)
      But they were young and foolish and tried to hurt each other, which somehow caused complex phenomena resulting in the creation of the planes of existence.
      Non-physical elements formed and slowly and naturally began to combine into new things.
      After that it became horribly complicated and I couldn't understand anything anymore.

      Even the things I've just mentioned; I'm not sure if I got those right.
      It was a really weird experience to attempt to read any of it.

      Whoah, trippy...

      But they were young and foolish and tried to hurt each other, which somehow caused complex phenomena resulting in the creation of the planes of existence.
      Would those planes be the dream plane and waking life? Or are they both planes in the dream world?

      I'd imagine! But what you read is definitely a stepping stone in lucid dreaming and spiritual discovery. Kudos, Hyu
