Dream Symbolism

“What was it like to learn to parachute out of a plane?” A statement like this one is very common in our normal conversation. I brought it to our attention not because we are going to talk about parachuting out of planes. But we often ask each other “what was it like?” The way the question is phrased is important.

How to Experience a Lucid Dream
