30×4 Day 29
I don’t want to call this one complete because it’s not. That’s okay, because the point of 30 Days isn’t to do something for 30 days and stop. It’s to try something for 30 days to see what I can get out of it. For example, I’ve still kept my good habits from 30×3.
How did I do? I totally failed on mindfulness. That probably means I really do need to do it, but perhaps even 30 days of it is too much if I need to do it 24/7. If I want to be more mindful, I need to learn a different way.
Lucid dreaming started off pretty well, then fell off the map. It’s not that I can’t do it, but I’m simply not motivated to do it. If there’s anything I’ve learned from this, it’s that I need to be motivated to lucid dream if I want it to happen. The only thing I found interesting enough to motivate me was to fly, and once I did that I didn’t feel the need to wake up in my dreams anymore.
I kept a dream log this month. My dreams alternate between totally nonsensical to things that are on my mind. There’s also a lot of hockey, and no mountain biking. I think I’m afraid to dream about mountain biking, because I don’t want to do something that defies physics in my dream and have my subconscious try to do it in real life. That would hurt. A lot.
I haven’t yet finished my lucid dreaming book. I received it on day 7, and at the rate I’m going I’ll probably finish it in another week. There were a couple interesting chapters early on, but now it’s just chapters on what wonderful things you can accomplish in life through lucid dreaming. Not particularly interesting, but I like to finish what I start (even when it’s not the best choice) so I’ll slog through the rest.
