Crazy dream last night.|
Somehow, people were able to slowly release their minds, and allow themselves to drift out of existence, then fall through reality, only to appear somewhere else. Only it was really hard to do. I'm not sure how much of the population could do it--I could, and it was normal, but I don't remember if I saw anyone else do it. I spent a large portion of the dream trying to get it right---when I did, it was incredible. Everything relaxed in a very particular way, then I could put my hand and face through things, then I was somewhere else. I realized right at the end of the dream that the process was just like falling asleep---you lose focus of everything, start thinking of other things, then suddenly you're dreaming. Hmmmmm....
Also, it was my mother's birthday---I had to run around and find things, find my sister, my uncle---(this was why I was trying to drift--I needed to get to other places, and it was the fastest way to get around)---- because she was tired (even though it was only 8pm or so/dusk), and she needed to fall asleep. I was also looking for a glass of wine for her, but only ended up finding a bottle of gin. So I poured a big glass of it, and left it sitting in a tent, hoping that would do.
I also spent a lot of time sitting and thinking---and I had cancer, as several other people did in the dream. The doctors had said I was terminal, unlike the other people. So I was coming to terms with that. I talked a lot with a variety of home and kenyon people---dan, lily, hannah, more. It was strange.
A central tennant of the reality-drifting was that if you thought you were going to hit the table, you would. So you had to forget where the table was in front of you, or better yet do it with nothing in front of you. Then you could drift.
I may or may not spend some large amount of time today trying to do this.
