Please understand that when I refer to dreaming, I am really referring to establishing a vision for your life. What does your ideal life look like? What does your ideal career look like? What do you want out of your relationships? Where do you see yourself living?
I believe that from the time that I wake up to the time that I go to bed , I should be engaged in activities that resonate with me? I believe that it is each persons’ right to strive to live life in a perpetual state of bliss. Bliss is defined as perfect joy. As a disclaimer, perfection is relative:)
Will there be challenges? Most likely? Do my challenges have to determine my level of joy that I both feel and bring to every activity that I engage myself in throughout my day? My answer is no except if you allow them to do so. As humans, we have a unique advantage. We have the ability to grow in our individual awareness of who we are and how we relate to our world. We can make conscientious choices.
You can learn to master your thoughts, therefore, master your emotions. Set an ideal for yourself. Ideals are useful because if , by chance, you get thrown off course by an unexpected crisis, you have a point of reference. An ideal is defined as satisfying one’s conception of perfection or most suitable. Your present reality is an illusion. Your reality is established by your perspective of what your life is. This point can be empowering. Consciously or subconsciously, you determine your reality. The fact that you found this blog can serve as proof that you are beginning to awaken to this fact. There is an old expression that states,” When the student is ready, the teacher will come.” The universe can be a formidable teacher.
Set an intention and work towards its fulfillment knowing that whatever vision that you have established within your “minds’ eye” MUST manifest!! It is universal law. Choose your own destiny. Dream BIG!!! Once you have established your dream, protect it from negative influences such as “logic”. Have the courage to have an original idea. Do you realize that the vast majority of innovative thinkers in any field faced enormous criticism from naysayers and “experts”? Be very mindful of who you share your dreams with.
In many cases, people warn you against pursuing certain goals due to their own fears and insecurities. Learn to filter. Maintain high expectations for yourself even if others seem not to have them for you.
Protect your dream. Guard and nurture it as you would a baby preparing to be born. In a real sense, it is your baby. It is your creation. Take care of it. Be mindful of who you share it with. Try not to be too disappointed if others don’t see it. Remember that it is your dream not theirs. They will see it when it is realized. No matter. You can’t live your life based on others’ perceptions. This is not true life. Until next time…
