For those who get into meditation and/or enjoy lucid dreams, it’s amazing what comes up during dreams. You meditate hard, maybe practice yoga, work on practices like forgiveness and compassion, try to love everyone, you’re feeling pretty good, and then boom, something comes up in the dream holodeck and you still don’t handle it well.
I guess stuff just keeps coming up out of the subconscious or universe or whatever, and it’s always like, “So, you’re feeling pretty good about your practice? Try this challenge on for size! Too bad, you failed.” It’s like anytime you build up your ego because you think you’re doing well, another test comes up to remind you how far you have to go.
