      Lucid Dreaming Book Club (July)

      Hey guys,

      This thread is to start a Lucid Dreaming Book Club discussion group on various books about lucid dreaming. As per the other thread, it seems like a good start would be:

      tibetan yogas.jpg

      For future selections, we could have a voting process. I figure maybe selecting one a month might be a good idea (so this could be July's)? Feel free to participate and discuss the book at your own pacing. Also, by all means, please feel free to suggest ideas for improvement, it does not have to keep this format. I look forward to reading with you guys!


      P.S. I will be starting the book within a week or so.

      Excellent idea; and a nice choice for the first book (hopefully off many!).

      Thanks. I was thinking, to keep it self-paced (and therefore more accessible to all), we could use spoiler tags labelled with the chapter we're discussing.

      Example:

      Spoiler for Chapter 1 (not really):

      "Lucid dreaming makes us kinder in everyday life. It shows us how our mind creates illusion, which allows us to see how other people's mind do the same. Once we see that, we realize that everybody is trying their best and that we're all in this together. We become a bit more tolerant and responsive, rather than closed and reactive."-Charlie Morley, Author of 'Dreams of Awakening: Lucid Dreaming and Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep'

      Looks like I could get the ball rolling. I'll share some quotes I liked from the intro and chapter 1 and my thoughts on them, but you can format your discussion post differently if you like

      (It's funny we are using spoilers for a book without a plot to spoil, but I do think it's helpful to organize our thoughts.)

      Spoiler for Part 1:
      You both are phenomenal analyzing and expressing your points of view, on what you have read!
      As for me, It takes a lot of practice, time, and effort just to write in English my own dreams; since is not my native language. But I know there's google translate.
      Back to the subject...In my opinion and for my experience with LDs. I see how those "karmic traces", can influence in our dreaming and waking life, positively or negatively. Therefore the importance of just observing thoughts and emotions as they arise, during sleep and wake time. Then practicing compassion towards ourselves and other sentient beings, and by nurturing a positive approach to transcend as a human race in this plane.
      Looking forward to learn and enjoy new experiences together! ...I'm learning to let go...

      Btw. I would totally like your post but, for some reason, I'm having some issues with my "Like Button", right now?

      I have this problem too. Sort-of solution - wait until the ad refreshes itself and like, your screen moves down a bit, then HIT the like right then and it will work.

      Here's my response to MoonageDaydream:

      Spoiler for Spoiler for Dream Yoga parts:
      I totally resonate with your answers, I also feel wisdom is universal and it would come knocking your door in many different ways and forms, whether you're ready to receive it or not.
      I'm also noticing doing more compassionate acts in dreams, and more aware that synchronicity is happening now, more than ever!
