Beautiful Dreamer

We must be pulled by our dreams, rather than pushed by our memories.

Jesse Jackson


Hello Geo


Go to the counter at the back of the store and cash in your past. It won't matter how much you get for it or what those who take it from you think it's worth. As you leave the store you will find that life's great adventure is walking with you, right under your feet.

It's never too late to have dreams. In fact the more of life that is stored up in the mental pocket, the more dreams there are to color it. Hopes and wishes become dressed up and glamorized by dreams. Dreams are powerful and yet they aren't heavy (like some of your past was). Dreams are imaginative and can vaporize assumptions. Dreams are adventuresome, the dreams come first, the logic follows. To the dream the future's better day is today. To dwell sincerely and certainly in the dream calls nature on to the job. When the world of mediocre thinking says it can't be done the dream says "nonsense."

"We are such stuff as dreams are made on" wrote Shakespeare. We become our dreams which is why we watch our dreams, shape and designate them to the best path. There is an old saying from some anonymous sage which says "You always get what you want, so be very careful about what you want." You can always test out a dream by what it makes to grow in you: weeds, flowers, trees, forests or jungles. The best kind of foliage to grow out of a dream is ideas. We do not invent ideas. They exist already in the unexplored landscapes of thought. But we can discover them. All the great inventions and accomplishments existed first as ideas to which a dreamer was pulled by his dream. To discover and articulate an idea is the grandest of activities. It is creative, vital. It is life at it's most interesting. It is the adventure walking right under your feet.,

Hello DB.! "To discover and articulate an idea is the grandest of activities." Thanks for demonstrating that yet again.
