Dreams..

The issue of Dreams has come up quite a lot this week,in my life aswell as in the life of friends..and I feel like giving it a moment of thought,of honor.

What did you dream of when you were a child? What did you want to be when you were to grow up?

Where are you now? Anywhere near..? At all…?

Does it strike you as odd? Or do you put it down to the naivite  in childhood,the only time we are allowed to dream..not realising what “REAL” life demands of us..?

Does it not strike you as odd..at all??

Yes,I know..the twists and turns of life itself are very overwhelming and sooo unpredictable indeed,believe me do I know..

But still..how much did we really honestly give ourselves a chance to visit those dreams ,even for a brief moment;a taste;a weekly,monthly class?

Is it Really that so far fetched and difficult to tap into our dreams?revisit them? Or has it just become so comfortable/organised/settled without disrupting our lives by suddenly connecting with our true innerselves?To enable us to LIVE more fully,more LIVELY,more HAPPY??Is it just easier to close the lid,then to deal with that essential part of us ,and work on how to introduce it to the world?

Isnt Life just hard enough without having to deal with THAT?The courage to take it out of the box..to deal with the reactions of our surroundings,their possible lack of encouragement,the fear of failure,the economic risks..whew..back in the box,presto!Sigh,relief..back to “normal”… Werent we all educated,trained not to take ‘risks’,not to be ‘unique’,not to ‘dream’…but to be ‘practical’..?

I actually believe that EACH and everyone of us is UNIQUE and has a DREAM.I also believe that we are put here on Earth to LIVE our DREAM and therefore fully equiped to do so. For those who say: I wish I could be____ but Im just not talented..I dont believe that to be true! If one has the LOVE for something,then he can do it,maybe in a totally different way then it is being done!

Maybe it takes time,maybe it takes a lot of courage,confrontation,struggle,frustration,negativity from others,social and economical risks..but its worth every teeny weeny effort,because it`s the dedication of the person to his TRUE self.It is in actualising your true self that everything else falls rightly into place.

Mevlana Rumi says:”There is one thing in this world you must never forget to do.Human beings come into this world to do a particular work.That work is their purpose,and each is specific to the person.If you forget everything else and not this,there`s nothing to worry about.If you remember everything else and not your true work,then you will have done nothing with your life.”

and Kahlil Gibran in his book “The Prophet” says:”Work is Love made visible.

And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste,it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.For if you bake bread with indifference,you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man`s hunger.

And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes,your grudge distills a poison in the wine…”

Maybe you dont even know what your dream is,having had it burried for so long,so well,you have managed to even hide it from “yourself”.Thats ok.Just start with tiny dips into things that bring joy,to slowly rediscover what it is.And oh,have I mentioned saying “it`s too late” is not an option anymore..? People have long proved by now they have transformed their lives at stages once thought of as “old”.Ever hear of the saying “better late than never” ?

So..Tap into yourself today,pay yourself a visit.See what you can do to coax your true innerself out to play even for just an hour.Do something you truly LOVE ,even for just a brief moment,and make some room for it in your weekly routine..and then..watch it grow.. 🙂

Many of you have probably already seen Susan Boyle,she is for me a symbol of DREAMS that CAN,SHOULD and WILL come true at the end..if we only do our part in enabling them..

  1. Mia, what a lovely and meaningful post. I do believe in the power of human mind. We can do ANYTHING we want as long as we dream it, want it and work for it. Nothing is impossible.

  3. Mia,
    beautiful thoughts put together here :))..
    for me dreams are just an extension of our daily wishes and desires that remained unfullfilled …so i guess never stop dreaming …may be someday it will be fulfilled who knows…

    Thank you Jaya!
    Yes..Thats also true..just as long as we give them legitimacy,and dont hide them away..they have every right to come true! We must never stop dreaming,it`s part of what moves us forward..I wish for you to accomplish yours! 🙂
