    Lucid #80: Back to the Past

    by , 09-30-2012 at 05:18 AM (507 Views)
    We were walking up a road with a small circular park in the middle, that thing where the cars could revolve around. I thought it seemed familiar, but something was off. Then I realized everything looked old, and the people were wearing traditional clothes. I realized it was a dream and went lucid. It must have been in the 1900's, because there weren't any buildings -- just wooden houses and kalesas. However, instead of changing the dream scene or using powers or anything, I decided to just...explore. It didn't even cross my mind. At that moment, I just thought that it wasn't everyday that I got to dream of my country's past. If I manipulated the dream, who knows when I get that chance again?

    So for the rest of the dream, which probably lasted about 10 minutes, I just walked around and watched the dream characters. Some men were farming in the distance, with some carabaos. Some women were out in their porches, weaving blankets with a huge wooden tool. Some kids were running around.


    Spoiler for kalesa:

    Spoiler for carabao:

    Spoiler for weaving thing:

    Spoiler for traditional clothes:


    Some of them even saw me, took off their straw hats, and bowed courteously. I bowed back.


    I woke up a few minutes after that. But that was such a beautiful experience. I travelled back in time and got to explore! I doubt any of my friends have done that. Suckers.

      Which is a great reminder that knowing you are dreaming is a wonderful thing, and I'd almost always like to know it ... but sometimes it can still be greatly rewarding to just go with the flow.
