Dream more

“Promise yourself to dream more and hesitate less.
To believe in yourself more
and judge yourself less by
the accomplishment of others.” Deanna Beisser

Dream more and hesitate less. How is it that our dreams shrink back when we hesitate to turn those dreams into goals and into action? How many opportunities will slip by when we hesitate to take action?

When we hesitate we lose momentum, when we lose momentum we lose the power to create. The waterwheel was used to power 19th century factories and it was the engine of the economy. When the water stopped moving so did the waterwheel and so did the factories.

Hope is the fuel of dreams. Robert Kennedy said, “Each time a person stands up for an idea, or acts to improve the lot others, or strikes out against injustice, (s)he sends forth a ripple of hope, …”. Action is a dream that has momentum. Action is what sees a dream turn into a creative river of possibilities.

Now, sometimes we just need to step back and relax ….

  1. “The dreamers are the saviors of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the visions of their solitary dreamers.”–James Allen

  2. It was the dreams of men and women who with courage faced the unknown and made it known.

    It is dreams that fuel mankind to achieve what was once thought impossible.

    Very nice quote.

  3. My response is simply this – But, fear, anxiety, suffering, worry etc are all also illusions! These are reactions to stimulus provided by nature for survival in our primordial times. We have simply inherited them. The trick is to be able to reach a stage in life when you are so observant, that when a reaction takes place in your body-mind-intellect complex, you will see it for what it is and go into either an action mode or accept the momentariness of the reaction.

    THE reality is what one tries to identify, that which is real for all times, in all space, immutable, etc. That is Vedanta is Consciousness. That is the ONLY reality.

    — The above is from a faithful reader —

    I will reply in a more detailed post.

    What does consciousness mean? Is it energy? Is it something else? Is it the mingling of cells exchanging electrical impulses – how do we have control or do we?
