a wonderful thing to dream, to have hopes and aspirations
of things to come, things to be in the future. But
it's an even more marvelous thing to awaken, to recognize
your true beauty, your true power, your true
ability. It's all inside of you already, waiting
patiently for you to look inside yourself and discover it,
use it, love it.
always used to think that something else would cause me to
be happy. I'd get just the right job, I'd meet just
the right person, I'd have tons of money. But as
I've grown and matured, I've learned that those were only
just dreams--the situation may have turned out the way I
wanted it to, but I wasn't any happier when it did.
That led me to believe that there was something wrong with
the way I was looking at things, with the way I was hoping
for something outside myself to do something that nothing
outside of me ever can do.
vision was clouded by my ideas that something else could
have any sort of power over my life. Of course it
can't! Only I have any sort of say over what I do,
how I do it, or how I feel when it's done. My vision
becomes much more clear when I look inside myself and see
myself for who I am, and trust myself fully and
like dreaming. But dreaming implies a sleeping
state, and in sleep there is no awareness. I prefer
to be aware, awake, alive. When I am, my vision is
truly clear and I can live my life fully and completely.
