Finding dreams to give meaning to life

Thought for the day:

Why have we forgotten how to dream? With our innocence gone, and the entertainment industry doing all the work for us, we quickly lose our capacity to dream possible futures. Stop. Close your eyes. And dream again. Put the stars in your dreams. And then reach for them. No need to struggle. Simply nurture the dream, sustain the vision, and watch it come true. It must, it’s the law.

Target for the day: DREAM.

At the moment I have not only lost my ability to dream but I have nearly lost the will to live. I have these ‘crashes’ every now and then, and this is not one of the better ones.

Today the thought for the day from Brahma Kumaris hit a spot because I have been thinking for quite a while now that I have lost the ability to dream. It used to be so important to me; it used to be an essential part of me because for a long time dreams were all that I had. I can’t say that it was cancer that took the dreams away from me because they had started to go before I was diagnosed, but I do think that one of the reasons I am feeling so low at the moment is the lack of the ability to dream.

By dream I do not mean while I am sleeping. I mean having a world in my head that I can enter, and where I TOTALLY belong. It is not judgemental and the dream just accepts me, as I accept the dream. It is a gentle, nurturing place which sometimes has stars to reach for, but which always has warm sunshine, a cooling breeze, birdsong and butterflies in the beautiful woods or seashore where my dream is right now.

I want it back!
