So often, we avoid taking action towards our desires simply because we feel we need clarity about our dreams before we start, or we feel we need confidence that we can achieve them before we take any real action. As it turns out, this “strategy” is a tremendous obstacle that keeps us separate from our dreams.
Journaling provides us with an opportunity to break that destructive pattern. When we see that we are not the dreamer of dreams but the product of life’s dream for itself, we feel empowered to take risks and test boundaries that we never would have felt safe doing before.
Today while journaling, write from Life’s perspective rather than your own; Realize that you are not the dreamer of dreams, but that you are the dream itself; Suspend attachment to your own desires so that you may be effortlessly carried by Life’s desires for a while. That’s it!
This week’s journal prompt is:
Week 18: “After the final veil lifts, I will . . .”
After the final veil lifts, there will be no hiding anymore. A fun and heartbreaking game, this game of hide and seek. And all the times I just wanted the game to end so that I could at long last “know”, but really, what fun is that?
Despite my eternal glimpse, the world remains thinly sheathed behind this final veil. I know where true north is. I know that when the ocean surface rages in the storm, the depth remains enduringly peaceful and content. But to experience heartache, sadness, and perhaps a bit of trepidation from time to time is simply a gift of sentience, and to refuse such a gift is to refuse all of life. Humanity is the gift that Life gave to itself. I am not here to spoil it’s fun. Let it use me as it will, and I will enjoy this play of form: joys, heartaches, veils, and all.
