LD4all Quest 62: Be your own Guru

LD4all Quest 62: January: Be our own Guru
Author: pasQuale

Each month, on LD4all :ld4all: we have a new Quest to explore your LD’s in a fun way.

Be your own Guru
We stay a bit in the spirit of giving, but it’s knowledge this time. This Quest revolves around teaching. If you share the view that everything within a lucid dream is a product of your own subconscous, then when you teach a DC, then in essence, you have taught yourself something. If you share the view that you can meet independent entities in your dreams, or perhaps have a shared dream, then by teaching a DC something you have in essence also taught yourself, since you learn best when you teach others. Plus you get the rewarding feeling of satisfaction that you have helped someone else on their way.

It doesn’t matter what you teach. You could teach flying skills, or perhaps teach a DC about lucid dreaming. Perhaps you want to tell about the secret of Life, the Universe and Everything. You can teach in classroom or a DC that you meet.

I’m curious to your teachings!

To complete this Quest and earn your wings

  • become lucid :wink:
  • Teach a DC something
  • Post your dream in this topic (a link to your DJ is allowed but you have to post in this topic that you have succeeded)

Please be very clear if you feel you have completed the Quest or want to try again - I will only give wings if you feel you have been succesfull in completing the Quest, the wings are a reward for yourself.

I will give everyone who earned it their wings at the end of this Quest, so please be patient

Before going to sleep or while doing your LD incubation technique (WILD/WBTB/MILD, etc):

  • Set your mind for this Quest
  • Decide what you want to teach

Post your attempts, whether you feel you succeeded or not, in this topic :smile:

Be sure to announce who you have teamed up with in the topic!

last but not least: have fun everyone! :happy:

Interesting Quest, and I RC’ed when I saw the number of the title says 61, it should say 62 :tongue: unless you plan to make people RC when seeing this topic :grin:

Ill definitely do this Quest :content:

hmm? :whistle:

Hey i’ll try to do this one !
I didn’t have an LD yet but hey, I got one whole month and things are going really good these times . :slide:
But I have one questions… are the wings an award of some sort…? or something else ?

ill try wish me luck qu.

I’ll try this one too! I’ve never tried a quest before, but this sounds like a good one. Maybe I’ll teach a DC about dream physics. That would be fun!

This sounds interesting, I’ll give it a go!

would I also complete the quest by being teached by an DC?
Because as the DC is part of me, being teached by him means that i taught myself, too.

I think this is interesting and I will try it.
Also this means that the Dc can teach me to LD easier or similar things :smile:

No, you should teach someone, not be taught.

Success! :smile:

DJ entry.

Nothing extraordinary but I managed to combine the pleasant with the useful.

I’d probably teach someone how to teach someone how to teach someone.
Very complicated stuff.
Somewhere in the dreamworld there must be a university where I can get a PhD in Meta-meta-education. :tongue:

lol, brilliant! I just love meta’ing and recursion :tongue: (well, and randomness and non-sense and…)

Aw, I actually completed this last month! :lol:

But I’ll happily do it again. Sometimes it takes teaching someone else something to learn it yourself.

Double post!

I showed a DC last night that I could make things appear (demonstrated by turning paper into $100 bills) and explained that she could do it too, however she didn’t believe she could and refused to try it herself.
Don’t know if that counts or not.

In any case, I’ll give it another go tonight. Hopefully I don’t get anymore quitters.

Ok, I’ve tried it this time, in the hard way: teaching LD and awareness levels to DCs.

I could teach it, but most didn’t pay attention, while others got angry at me.
The best part is that I’ve done a lot of tricks there, and the experience about “meta-LDing” is very valuable.

I will be short, I don’t have a DJ anymore so…
[size=75][LD]I noticed it was a dream once I got into a elevator in a sort of theater, and when I got out of it, I was in a hotel lobby, when I saw the receptionist, I recalled about teaching things and wondered if telling about LD and such stuff would lead me to a FA.

Fortunately it didn’t, but she was uninterested at first, after insisting and showing some powers (disappearing objects, invisibility, flying and transformation), she got angry and yelled at me to get out of there!

So I’ve run to outside and flew to a university. I got directly to a second floor there and mind controlled a professor to leave the classroom, so I could try with more attendants. But no one payed attention on me. Just a bit after I stopped talking some one come by: the rector. He asked me to follow him, so he could show me my new room!???

At first, that seemed to be friendly but it was obvious: he locked me alone inside the room, so I would quit disturbing the students. Anyway the room was very large and full of interesting things. As my last trick there, I removed the gravity inside the room and could swim in midair.[/LD][/size]

At last, It was very interesting, but no one learned what I had taught. Anyway, I don’t think I have done so many tricks in a single LD before…

I’m sorry if you don’t believe it, that wasn’t my intention. :cool:

I’ll try this quest, although its doubtful that I’ll succeed this month (I’m just starting to regain interest in LDs). I suppose that if I do have an LD I’ll attempt to teach a DC how to fly.

I’ll try, though, like Vampirism I’m just now getting back into LDing. I’ll teach some kid a thing or two about flying dragons.

I will write this on my To-do list! :smile:

I met my friend Ella in an LD, and she was surprised to hear she was in my dream. I told her I could control my dream, and learnt her to do it herself. I learnt her to make winning lottery tickets (I know, it’s useless in a dream) and how I normally fly.

IRL she couldn’t remember anything of course, but it was fun meeting her in a dream :tongue:

I did it! My first quest :content:

I dont have a DJ so here it goes the short version:
Me and my brother was standing outside our house and I was trying to show him how to make trees disappeaer (I was already lucid but dont remember how i got lucid in this one) but it dident work. That made me do an RC and it confirmed that it was a dream. So I decided to teach him how to fly. I instructed him to climb up on a fence and than jump off it while waving his arms. I went first and he followed me. We flew in low altitude down our road towards our mailbox. I could hear him laugh behind me. Than we stopped, and I decided to fly higher. He watched me as I climbed, but he dident follow me. The sky was clear blue whith only a few clouds. But since I had spent my last LDs flying, I decided to explore my neighborhood. The dream faded shortly after

It was never my intention in the dream to complete the quest, but I remembered the quest when I woke up and realised that i had done it :smile:
