Dreams. Visions. They can be small but don’t ever think that even the smallest of dreams and visions do not count for something. I dreamed a dream and in it the truck I have been dreaming of since I was a teenager looked like this:
I am striving for the day that I can wake up and that dream has come true. That truck will look like this:
I know that it’s coming. Of course, I do not just dream about trucks but it is illustrative of all other dreams and aspirations that I want to come to pass in my life. I have the perfect opportunity to build my life and take it in any direction that I want, as do we all. It starts with that dream, that vision.
“A ‘thing’ may seem impossible only until the persistence of its realization proves it is not impossible. Then, when realized you continue to build upon and aggrandize [make greater] the ‘thing’ which at one time you deemed impossible.” – J. E.
We often wake up and vaguely remember the dreams that Infinite Intelligence has planted within. Remember this: When one is truly ready for a thing, it puts in its appearance. Let us put ourselves in position to realize these dreams, these visions.
Advice from a billionaire: Slow and steady wins the race.
Notice I said put ourselves in position. That simply means that we need to line ourselves up with the will of Almighty God. We can’t force our dreams to come true but one day when we wake up and realize that we are standing right in the middle of what was at one time a dream then we will know we were on the right path. Then we ask for guidance so that we can stay in line with that will so that our other dreams will come true.
I am starting from scratch. I had what most would say is a great life but the only imperfection in my life was me. When I wrote All I Have Asked, I Have Been Given I had a realization that the choices and decisions I have made in my past have gotten me right where I am. I am not defined by that past but I will let what I learned from it define my future.
“I wouldn’t get where I am going if I wasn’t here right now.” – J. E.
We have to live in this present moment and not in the future or the past so that we can keep our focus steady. Unfortunately, we as human beings aren’t really capable of living in all three of those places at once so the present is the perfect place for us to be.
