When we read about human history we find it presented from a variety of perspectives. We hear about humans as explorers, politicians, warriors, inventors, and so on, but we seldom hear about humans as dreamers. Yet so many of the significant advances of civilisation have been inspired by individuals who had a dream.
A dream, or passion, comes directly from the soul and represents the best that we can bring to life in this world of ours. To have a dream is to be inspired and to be guided by clear intention.
Joan of Arc, Abraham Lincoln, Copernicus, Florence Nightingale, Ernest Rutherford, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Madame Curie – all these people were inspired by a dream, and the world we live in is a better place because they had the courage and the vision to bring that dream to life. One of the most significant speeches of the 20th Century was delivered by Martin Luther King, and it was called, “I have a dream.”
So as we enter into 2009 with all its challenges and its possibilities do you have a dream that you wish to give birth to? A dream will take you beyond your normal limits and fears and enable you to enter a larger world of commitment and achievement. It will fill you with a sense of purpose and bring meaning into all your activities.
When you are committed to living your dream you are in effect saying, “my life counts for something. I am the living expression of something great and holy. It is important that I do the very best I can.”
The world needs practical dreamers, and if you have a dream that throbs in your veins then the world needs that. And by bringing it to life you will fulfil your purpose and live your own extraordinary life of creative achievement.
So dream big and then find a way to make it happen.
Wishing you abundant blessings for 2009
