To Dream

My World   To dream, to live, to move forward, to be; oh what marvelous creatures we humans be.

 The key word is “be.”  For “to be” is to dream illustrious dreams filled with all the good we can imagine, to soar into the heights of our imaginings, to dream a new reality, new life, a new and more prosperous way of living and expressing, let us not let our dreams be as vapors that dissipate into nothingness but allow them to take form and substance in our life experience.

It is from dreams we become inspired to be more, to create, to experience greater good in all areas of our life.  Dreams are the impetus to moving forward with greater success in expressing life.  Shakespeare wrote, paraphrasing, “To sleep, perchance to dream.”   Let us awaken and take our dream of better living into our hearts and minds and decide to set our goal, to make the dream reality.  You are capable of doing this, making your dream a reality.  To do so is to believe in your dream and yourself, but more than that you must know it as a real possibility for you here and now.  No one else can do this for you.  No one can prod you along…you are the only one who can and who has the inner power, creativity and strength to bring your dream into reality.  Others may inspire us with their stories and how they became more successful in life. These stories may motivate us, may cause us to consider a new direction to accomplish our goal or change our point of focus and create a deeper awareness within ourselves of how to achieve our goals.

Life is filled with opportunities.  It up to each of us to take advantage of these opportunities when they arise in the course of our daily life, Carpe Diem, seize the day and the opportunities.  There are times we create the opportunities.  Life will forever honor us at our own taking So, today, know that your dreams can come true, that within you is; the power, talent and ability to attain a life of greater well-being and success.

Your life is one of success and well-being,

Reach

Today’s Positive Thought is by Pamela Vaull Starr.

“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.  Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”

A Different Christmas Story

A Different Christmas Story was sent to me by a minister friend who is into mysticism and spirituality sans religion.  I asked him for permission to print some of what he wrote and he said yes.  I hope you find this not only interesting but informative.  

To all, Let Your Light Shine!

From the vastness and darkness of The Great No-Thing which gave rise and birth to The All, from which all flows, visible and invisible, there is a Light that shines brightly within us called The Christ (Christos), a title meaning the anointed one.  Each of us has this Light within us and to the point we recognize our spiritual power and ability to overcome the challenges in the desert of life, we find, have revealed to us, our true inner nature and life becoming a light in this world.  The birth of the Christ (Christos) within begins with a pinpoint of light of understanding appearing in our mind.  As we recognize it and follow this light of spiritual revelation, star in the east, we become en-lightened, as our inner wisdom and unconditional love marry, become as one, thus is the seed of spiritual understanding and awareness planted and as we nurture it and become enveloped in it’s love and light we transform over time, becoming more aware of our spirituality and inner power to overcome “what seems to be” with “the power that is.”  In the ancient teachings of spiritual evolvement symbols and stories where metaphors and enhanced when a person of greatness came to be.  You are a person of greatness and it is now time to write your new story with the awareness of your inner power and life to overcome seeming appearances of this life.  Be transformed by the renewing of your mind, for you are and always have been the beloved. 

As the great mystic Meister Eckhart stated,

“We are celebrating the feast of the Eternal Birth which God the Father has borne and never ceases to bear in all eternity… But if it takes not place in me, what avails it? Everything lies in this, that it should take place in me.”
Meister Eckhart

“There exists only the present instant… a Now which always and without end is itself new. There is no yesterday nor any tomorrow, but only Now, as it was a thousand years ago and as it will be a thousand years hence.”
Meister Eckhart

Today’s Positive Thought

Expand Your Mind

Today’s Positive Thought is by Thich Nhat Hanh.

“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness.  If you are attentive, you will see it.”

Celebrate You

Time to celebrate you and all that you are, life is too short to be lived with regrets of “what would’ve been” or “what I would’ve achieved,” age is not a factor. 

Celebrate you, your uniqueness, and your differences.  None of us is the same; none of us will achieve the same way as another. Each of us has our own special talents and abilities and will achieve accordingly, be thankful for the differences.  Life is not to be a boring, lackluster experience but be an invigorating and colorful experience that celebrates your life and living.  Emerging from the dark and dank shadows of “what if…” a new day dawns and life takes on a whole new meaning, glistening with and presenting new possibilities and opportunities.   Time to be willing to try something new, a new approach to life, a new approach to problem solving, a new approach to expressing the unique and wonderfully creative individual you are! 

As we begin to express our creative talents and abilities, newness enters our life in a variety of ways most of which may come as a surprise to us.

Live your life; celebrate you and all that you are.  You are You and no one can take your place, so enjoy being you and be thankful for all that you are and all that your life is.
