It's all a question of 'mind set' - if you work on it - gently - you'll get 'there'.

for sure!

Everyone and everything goes through these changes - because they are the only Constant! But because we have never been taught this - we have to learn it ourselves!

What can be taken for granted today - may be a far away, unreachable thing tomorrow - not to worry and to stay standfast in what and who one is, not thinks to be... is the way...

Galacticus, I agree with you wholeheartedly. Well stated!!

Ladybird, have you ever had a dream and then picked up on part two the following evening? I have done that a few times. I enjoy most of my dreams, once dreamt that I dreamt something. LOL It can be quite entertaining as well as a form of escapism.

I had control in my dreams as well. Yes, many strangers some of them dead, I once met up with Black Elk in a dream, I didn't even know he existed until the following day when I looked the name up? Very strange, the way the mind works.

I find that quite fascinating. I wonder how that works.

I once had an amazing dream that 'felt' rather like astral travel. I was gliding over the sea, towards the land, where my family was waiting. I was on a paraglider or something similar - and the experience was incredibly 'real'.

Nothing unusual with it! It's our true nature... if I am allowed to say this.. laugh

The World around us - as beautiful it is - is our material grave... "Let the dead bury their dead"...who said it and much, much, more important WHAT did he want us to tell with this? wink

Its only since this thread started i've really started to think back on this,but when things changed within my dream i felt like i was watching myself in it..it wasn't until i moved back within myself in the dream i took control again,if i was in the dark i'd turn around and walk into daylight,if it was daylight i'd move to another location i just took myself out of harms way,and i always woke the next day remembering it all..and as i said earlier i could pick up on a dream the following night...life and dreams both strange to me.. confused

I've always wanted to do this but have never been able to. I need a lesson. laugh
