Two men look out the same prison bars, one sees mud and the other stars”-Frederick Langbridge
Now what do you see? What’s your window?
Regardless of your situation (prison bars), understand that it is your imagination that builds and bridge a place for your dreams to live. If you don’t have an imagination you’ll have no place for your dream to live.
It’s like taking two sticks and making them come to life. We all have the power to breathe life into things we want and dream. However, if you can’t see beyond the physical things, you’ll only see your dream in your sleep. Consciousness sometimes steals the moment, and awareness helps you recognize those moments. So cease them.
Once the moment has passed, it’s gone. History only happens once you’ve done something. So act now, later doesn’t exist.
Dream and dream big. Dream with the intentions of opening your eyes, still having your dreams there. Walk with it, listen to it, and follow it. Recognize that it’s the conscious acts that tell us who we really are. Those are the things taking place when we’re not watching…ourselves.
Why does it take the simple components of air to be taken away for us to wake up and realize that the vanities of life are worthless? Go back and think about when you were a child. Think about how you seen a small house on a hill, when you mother said, “Once upon a time there was a house on a hill.” It was your imagination. You were able to see the story that someone was telling you. You were able to defy every rule to reality. You turned logic into life, and your life was consistently you’re dream. Bring yourself back to those moments and think as you were.
Yes, people will think you’re crazy and say you’re not being rational. However, your life will quickly be filled with the moments, and memories of people and things that are priceless. Who needs rationality when you’re living you’re dream?
