ARE YOUR DREAMS REALLY WORTH IT?
Ok. we all have our dreams as to what it is we would like to see happen. And that is exactly the way it should be. Or should I say most of the time. I would challenge each of you to take an honest look at your dreams right now. Whatever they are maybe you should take a close look and see what it takes to achieve those dreams. I have found out that many folks who are trying to realize their dreams oft times go about it in such a way that they leave behind them much heartache, sorrow and damage to others. Take the person who is dreaming of one day becoming the CEO of a big company. That dream in itself is a good one I suppose. But the way they go about attaining that dream may include lying, cheating, and stepping on someone's toes in a big way. Or how about the person who dreams of material wealth? Again, that dream is a good one. But if he or she cheats others along the way to attaining his or her dreams I would say this. If a dream includes hurting others needlessly then that particular dream isn't worth having. I've seen time and time again people who have attained their dreams in a less than loving way. And you know what? Most everyone of them find that they are still very unhappy. I admit there are those folks who can somehow justify anything they did as being ok. So all the rubbish they leave behind in their search for fulfilling a dream just goes unnoticed by them. Instead they delude themselves with their own ego self and go around feeling like they have accomplished something really great. I would say to those folks, Some day, somehow, you are guaranteed to have to face your past demons. One day you will have to look into your "real" being and admit that you haven't done anything except add to the so called problems of this world. When the time does come and they cannot put any kind of "spin" on their actions that will be their Judgment Day. Like it or not, every day is Judgment Day. I am always working on myself to make sure that my personal dreams do not include harming anyone or anything. And just like all of us, I too will one day have to peer deep into my deepest part of my soul and then realize have my dreams been good ones or not. I suppose time will tell. So with much love intended may I ask each of you to just take a moment and look honestly at your dreams and then decide, Are they worth striving for, or should I go in a direction that doesn't include leaving destruction in my wake. My sincerest hope is that each of you will find that your dreams are truly worth pursuing. And that they may soon arrive on your doorstep. Give love, accept love, Be love, for that is truly all any of us are. Be good to yourself and even better to others!
