I dream of painting and then I paint my DREAM.
~Vincent van Gogh
The older I get the greater I dream
The visions of youth are now dimly seen
How lovely it is though years have flown by
You’ve much to accomplish & things yet to try
Each day’s an adventure & much is in store
Be fully expectant and open the door
In your DREAMS .. may you soar
Dreams contain wishes .. they unwind .. goals are entwined.
Dreams are filled with creativity and WONDERMENT and imagination.
To be fulfilled: they require desire, commitment, persistence, and HARD work.
In the preparedness of SOWING dream seeds there are elements of luck and favor.
All of your life .. DREAM
Is there a fountain for dreams?
As the heart is the well-spring of life
DREAMS are birthed in the human heart
Allow your HEART to connect to your mind
Allow your MIND to connect with your heart
Your mind is like a flowing stream
.. thoughts & IDEAS flowing in ..
.. you need to write them out ..
.. to make room for more ..
In stillness .. awakened
It’s lovely to sit by a stream
.. so as to savor .. so as to dream
.. might the water be whispering?
.. does wonderment help us create?
.. thoughts and IDEAS tend to percolate
.. in time .. with nurture, they proliferate
She dreamed a thousand dreams of those sunlit regions and was consumed with longing for this other and richer self, forgetting—what is so easily forgotten—that even the fairest dreams and the deepest longings do not add an inch to the stature of the human soul.
~Jens Peter Jacobsen, Niels Lyhne
DREAMS are connected to your heart and your level of consciousness.
“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” – Carl Jung
“Dreams are ageless. The more you grow as a person, the more your ability to DREAM can grow.” – Amina Alami
Increasing consciousness increases your capacity.
Spiritual awakening increases your capacity. The greater your capacity, the greater your DREAMS will be.
DREAMS are seldom realized without struggles, setbacks, disappointments & challenges.
Life has a way of crushing our dreams .. and our souls .. and our hearts .. and our spirits.
But in some are found a deep well-spring .. those who “drink with the root of their heart”
“Know ye not that there is in this world a secret confraternity? There are people who by natural constitution have been given a different nature and disposition than others; that have a larger heart and swifter blood, they wish and DREAM and demand more, have stronger desires and a yearning which is wilder and more ardent than that of the common herd. They are fleet as children over whose birth good fairies have presided; their eyes are opened wider; their senses are more subtle in all their perceptions. The gladness and JOY of life, they drink with the roots of their heart, while others merely grasp them with coarse hands.” – Jen Peter Jacobsen
In all struggles: our mind is like a ship
“When all seems to be against you, remember, a ship sometimes has to sail against the current, not with it .. The storm only comes to teach you how to skillfully sail your ship .. You don’t command wind in the direction it blows, but you command a ship in the direction it sails .. Your mind is a ship; it can sail across the universe as long as you don’t allow negative thoughts to sink it.” ― Mashona Dhliwayo
“I want to be in the arena. I want to be BRAVE with my life. And when we make the choice to dare greatly .. to DREAM greatly .. we sign up to get our asses kicked. We can choose courage or we can choose comfort, but we can’t have both. Not at the same time.” – Brene Brown
The power of light…
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it or giving up on our DREAMS. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and JOY. It is these experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” – Brene Brown
Light Source: “In His Light .. we have light” – Psalm 36
“The fruit of the Light consists of goodness, righteousness & truth” – Ephesians 5
Might dreams rest best in gratitude?
“Do not only indulge in DREAMS of having what you have not, but reckon up the heap of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.” – Marcus Aurelius
Wish upon your own bright star.
Hold close this thought: DREAMS don’t work unless you do.
Follow your DREAMS .. though they seem afar .. seem impossible
“Call nothing thy own except thy soul. Love not what thou art, but only what thou may become.” Dream the Impossible Dream – Man of La Mancha
