1918: ‘That which for us is yet sight, not touch.’

November 7, 2018

And I dreamed a dream.

I dreamed I saw a land. And on the hills walked brave women and brave men, hand in hand. And they looked into each other’s eyes, and they were not afraid.

And I saw the women also hold each other’s hands.

And I said to him beside me, “What place is this?”

And he said, “This is heaven.”

And I said, “Where is it?”

And he answered, “On earth.”

And I said, “When shall these things be?”

And he answered, “In the future.”

If you try to comprehend air

before breathing it,

you will die.

 

We can only consider things so long. After a while, all the information – – all the options and opinions – – will begin to weight us down. After our deeper eyes have seen the situation, all the well-meaning voices telling us what we should or should not do will start to feel like strings we can’t cut through.

It is natural enough to be cautious and thoughtful, especially when faced with important decisions, but often the only way to know what awaits us is to live it.

This brings to mind the revelation that came upon a Hindu sage centuries ago, One day in the middle of their morning prayers, the sage suddenly rose and ushered his students away from the monastery. He rushed about them and shooed them back into life like little ducks, proclaiming, “the day is to be experienced, not understood.”

[meditation]

° Center ourself while holding a glass of water and an empty cup.

° Consider the choices that away you while during the water from one glass to the other.

° When you tire of the pouring, breathe deeply and drink the water.

° Now enter your life.

The truth is that what we want or dream of doesn’t always last. It tends to serve its purpose in our development and then fades away, losing its relevance. And we can do enormous damage to ourselves by insisting on carrying that which has died. Living up to a dream is rarely as important as entering it for all it has to teach.

‘Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change world.’

What and how

Small dreams work this way: figure out what’s available, then choose your favorite.

Important dreams are based on what needs to be done, and then… find your how.

It’s always easier to order off the menu. Is easier the goal?

Sweet dreams are made of this…
