I cannot believe that time, and this year has passed so quickly. I pondered this morning about ALL WHICH WE DO NOT PLAN OR EXPECT. Both of which make life what life should be, and what makes it worth living, Surprises have been just as, if not more, grand and gratifying than my own plans. And being one cannot be without the other, I am well aware and accepting of it all in all. For in the UNEXPECTED, I have witnessed the BEST OF THINGS……… LOVE, CHILDREN, JOY, and PEACE. I am not all about “the pursuit of happiness” as we have known of it, for WHAT IS HAPPINESS? But an imaginary destination, or a short pit stop. I am for the unraveling journey and its expansion, and its twists and turns, ALL which build our character and ALWAYS ALWAYS make us better at the end…………if we let it.
(Sigh……) It isn’t that it is always easy. The road less traveled, is just that. The UNKNOWN. We just do not know how much LOVE, JOY, PEACE, and greatness of life stands just so close, only because we do not see it. We can gather that the unknown can be the most rewarding, and we see it in those who strive with courage. But we may falsely believe that we could not be as lucky…….but LUCK has nothing to do it. COURAGE, DETERMINATION, WILL, and GRATITUDE, AWARENESS, PURPOSE, PASSION, BELIEF, and MIRACLES do. These are huge words, you know? Huge.
This I pondered this morning, as it applies to my path of non-anticipated surprises, of all kinds. I have come to TRUST in LIFE. I have come to a point of agreeing, in a sense, with that which we may see as unfortunate, and to know with certainty that it makes for such such great endeavors to come. To a day when one can trace the perfect orchestrated details of it all. And when one CAN say……..”I SEE.”
For the moment, BELIEVE in yourself with your highest might, and don’t give way to fears and doubts. As they are the ONLY true failure, and the only true mistake. So long as YOU ARE LIVING FULLY, and giving your all with your whole best to your DREAM THAT IS…….nothing within that space can be a loss, or a mistake. They are all ways in which by elimination you realize a closer step towards THE WAY. And for the times when you have exhausted your means……not only is there always tomorrow, but you can let it go in peace. Knowing that you gave your best, and either the timing is wrong, or its not the best path for you, and life has better ideas. But do not fret! Believe! Have patience! There is a difference between things not working out at all, and in planting seeds that have not yet grown. KNOW that difference and be very patient. Don’t walk away too soon, and don’t walk away impatient. Knowing yourself is how you know and can sense these differences. And you will.
MY PERSONAL GARDEN…………. I can see it clearly, I can smell it, I can taste it, I believe in it, I work endlessly on it. It is a labor of LOVE and for LOVE, with good intentions, with dedication, with passion, and most importantly for the greater good. My dream that is, is my work FOR ALL OTHERS, from one single person to tons, my touch is to uplift as many as I can and to enlighten even in the slightest. I am often called an “inspiration” and I don’t try to be, but I do WISH that everyone could realize their inner dream, because I believe that is a way in which we create WORLD PEACE. An inner joy that yearns to be shared, can counteract negativity in all its senses, and spread kindness and generosity, and good will. We all know that misery wants company and I believe that SO DOES JOY. So therefor I hope that you all accompany me IN JOY. Thus becoming as well, AN INSPIRATION all your own.
This is my second post of dreams to BE…….and I would love nothing more than to share in all the goodness and sort of “fairy dust” which pours upon me. As I believe whole kindheartedly that anything which you can imagine, you CAN DO. Granted of reality, if you are in touch with your TRUE INNER SELF, then you won’t be dreaming about space and the moon, but rather of that which truly truly your innermost being KNOWS from a higher calling that you were MEANT TO DO!!!!!!!!
It is that way that dreams unfold and become the reality we call A HAPPY LIFE.
A : When you DISCOVER the AWESOME person that hides and waits inside, (minus the parts that aren’t really really you, like fears, doubts, and insecurities… etc…)
B: When you LISTEN attentively to your inner voice which whispers from beyond to hint of a way in which you can be your most actualized self! (To listen you must get quiet, silence will reveal more about those DREAMS that CAN BE, than anything or anyone else outside of you.)
C: Find your STUBBORN backbone…… everyone will tell you that you can’t, should not, won’t be able to, are not good enough. don’t have enough, blah blah blah…….negative talk of whatever the case may be. Making SHEER DETERMINATION the absolute factor necessary to make mountains out of molehills, that the Universe or higher power will miraculously move for you BECAUSE YOUR FAITH in your own potential is matched by that special touch of wonderment we call COINCIDENCES, LUCK, or RIGHT PLACE RIGHT PEOPLE, etc… All those “goodies” and extra compensation comes from your own efforts and your own positive standing.
D: KNOW THE HOW TO!!! We all hear “dos and don’ts” and the talk is the easy part….. Focus your plans and actions on the HOW and not on whether or not something can be accomplished. Starting with the golden quote “WHEN THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY” HOW HOW HOW……and more HOW…..and the answers will come! Even in dreams, through someone else, in a blog you might stumble upon your screen 😉 or in many other ways. So in the next few posts I will further delve into more details of these 4 basic grounds and cover more in depth the HOWS and the ALTERNATIVES. Alternatives are very important because we are all different and we have different styles. Finding that way that best works for you is the main part of finding your self. In knowing who you are and what best suits you, you also learn what you DON”T want and what may be causing more harm, than good. Letting go and letting God comes to mind in a sort of “clearing the way” and the distractions so that you CAN BE that which you DREAM!!!!
When you are working linearly, multi-tasking on one too many things, it seems that the destination to your goals is NEVER. But in the spirit of never saying never, I pressed on. With the STUBBORN determination Anais Nin mentioned was all she really had to excel as in contrast to any other, with such … I pressed on. In my heart (which has been literally physically ill and weak) I pressed on, through many sleepless nights of giving ALL with nothing in return but A DREAM, I pressed on . . . The song “I Dreamed a Dream” came to mind as a melody before I could decipher its lyrics, as if my subconscious knew something I did not, and so I looked it up and decided that was precisely the title to MY DREAM THAT IS. I could cry if I weren’t so achingly beaten, I could smile if I could say it was easy. But instead I press on . . . To all whom LOVE BEAUTY, CREATIVITY, and the gifts that Spirit has poured on my imagination AND my hands… may all which I create be worn in goodness, in magical enchantment, and may it always in you press on THE DREAM YOU DREAM.
