What Do Your Dreams Tell You?
Our dreams are the raw material of our mission and vision for the future. James Allen gives the following insights to the power of our dreams in chapter 6 of As A Man Thinketh: Dreamers, innovators, artists, and sages are the architects of the world. You live in a world created by the labors of dreamers. The beauties your enjoy, the world around you was created through the power of their dreams and the sacrifices they made.
Treasure the ideals, thoughts, and experiences that stir your heart. Your purest thoughts and experiences are sacred. If you remain true to your ideas, you will create your own blissful circumstances.
You cannot find bliss in your basest desires nor misery in your purest aspirations. In time, the law of achievement rewards your purest aspirations with bliss and your basest desires with suffering and misery. It cannot be any other way.
All things are first created mental, then physically. The seed of achievement is the dream. The greater the hopes of your heart, the more compelling will be the blueprint for your actions. Powerful dreams create powerful action.
Your circumstances may be uncongenial, but they shall not long remain so if you but perceive an Ideal and strive to reach it. You cannot travel within and stand still without. You will realize the Vision (not the idle wish) of your heart, be it base or beautiful, or a mixture of both, for you will always gravitate toward that which you, secretly, most love.
May dreams be the motivation you need to achieve your purposes.
