Steve, I had a feeling you were not going to like the inspiration side of this trial as much as the subjective side. Inspiration can take you places you probably thought were good at the time, but turn out to be a waste of time or just not that great. Seeing life as a dream was something you started to cover way back in 2006 and that is when I did an experiment with it. It maybe lasted 2 weeks and weird things started to happen. People would come up to me while I was working and hand me money. I'm trying to reintegrate the dream world back into my reality to see if it will optimize my enjoyment in life.
It's just hard, being brought up in what we were told is an objective universe. Like you, I am constantly reminding myself that I am dreaming, and my reality is starting to shift once again, but slowly. That's fine with me, for now, until I grasp the significance of this subjective reality once again. Steve, it's always good reading your posts. You remind me a lot of myself when you talk about your childhood and your college experiences. I can't help but think you are a part of me.
