PostSubject: Enlightenment   Wed Mar 21, 2012 6:01 pm

Last night I had a curious dream :

me, My sensei, and another man training in ninjutsu were all together. She explained that there was a test of enlightenment that we hadn't done before. It first started with meditating, until we reached a trance state, and entered our inner world. I watched the other man meditate, for a long time. The time in my dream felt like the real time in life. Finally he awoke, and he didn't even know the test had started, it seemed to him nothing changed. Then it was my turn. I sat there, until the man and my sensei left, after an hour or two I began to get frustrated because I couldn't do it. Like I said, time there felt like real time.

Finally, when night was starting to approach I figured I would give up on the test. I went to my living room. And outside in our yard, I saw a man, appeared to be in his 30's with a beard, doing karate. I decided to watch him, and do my own moves while remaining inside. I looked down for an instant, and when I looked back up. The man was floating, and then I knew "This is the test." And I released my mind. I felt myself raise higher, and I was surrounded by a sea of light, and lines of gold seemed to swim through the air. I knew what this was, enlightenment. And then I returned to my sensei. When I came out of the trance my exact words were "I forgot what it was like to have a sense of rank in the world! I feel unbeatable!" yet looking back now I do not know what I meant, in no part of my life was anything defined by a rank, because I had never had one. My sensei told me the time I had been in the trance was 6 hours and 15 minutes, which astonished me, because it felt like exactly that.

She then told me I had to swear fealty, like samurai's did to their daimyo, it was a symbolic thing. She said to swear on three things. I swore on my shield, and her teachings. She told me that was only two, and I replied I had nothing else to swear on. She told me "Swear on your sword, that seems to be the key to unlocking your potential." And I did. And My chest convulged and I woke up, amazed by the fact that was a dream. It had seemed so real. And no sooner did I wake up and roll over thinking, than did my mom come in to wake me up for school.

The simple flow of time in that dream, the meaning of it, and how clear I was, combined with the timing of how it happened lead me to wonder just what it meant. Have you ever had a dream that seemed that real, then woke up only to find out it didn't happen? if so, what?

Topic preserved.

Ah, dreams. I love that topic. Oneirology is fun. And sort of. Have you ever had a lucid dream? Like, a dream that you controlled by realizing that you were in fact dreaming?

Mostly I can't even remember the dreams I have in the night. Sometimes I just remember vague images of cute girls...

Both of you:

You always dream, else your brain goes inactive and you die, Dart. You just don't remember them.

Usually I wake up in the middle of the night to go to toilet, so I didn't get such a full sleep and can't very much remember my dreams.

@ Gengkiskan
Actually, when you wake up to go to the bathroom, don't move at first. Lay there until you remember your dream, the act of getting up actually causes you to forget.

And usually, sadly I can only remember very small parts of my dream, and they makes me very tired. One time I dream I'm getting chase by some scary murderers, and I ran all night long, and I got tired out in the morning when I wake up.

I remember two dreams. The first one was that I was running from something in an eucalyptus forest, I woke up but I coudn't open my eyes, so I was day-dreaming, literally. The second dream was that white spiders began to get out of one of my legs, making quite a big hole in my legs

One time I dream that geckos start to drop on to my body while I was sleeping, then more and more of them drops onto me that they covered my body... How I hate geckos. (I squash them when I was a kid, so I hate them a lot)
