As a child growing up I had a very big dream for my “self”, I wanted to be an astronaut. I had dreams and visions of flying (I somehow grew wings or just flapped my arms the right way…), of someday walking on the moon, and I thought for sure that humans would be living on Mars by the mid 1980’s. When I was in 6th grade, I drew diagrams and pictures of domed cities on the red planet, and I would explain to my classmates (and teachers) what it would be like living there.
Oh well, that didn’t happen. Sure, I’ve traveled on airplanes, and I’ve also jumped from low bridges into the river below, sort of like flying at least for a few seconds in freefall anyway, but I don’t know if I’m ever going to get to the moon.
There is a lot to be said for the dreams and visions, for the imaginations of a child. Remember what that felt like?
As a child I also had dreams of someday being a doctor, a brain surgeon perhaps. What can I say, that also didn’t happen but I did study Chemistry and earn a Bachelors’ degree in science.
It’s kind of funny how dreams work out, not exactly as you see them, but somehow as they are meant to be, to lead you, to teach you, to help you realize the true expression of your “self”.
The point is that inside of every being the ability to dream is always there, the ability to create a life that is fulfilling and lived “well” and experienced to its fullest in you …
Dream big… realize the infinite in you… (this is my vision for you…)
