Life is not a dream

December 31, 2005 | 1 comment

From a young age I’ve heard preachers and motivational speakers promise, “If you can dream it you can have it!”

How many people have pursued their dream and achieved their goal, but still felt like they didn’t “have it?” They wanted more?

I think of a man who believed he would be happy when he earned a large sum of money. He earned the income, but discovered he wanted more. He was not happy with what he had.

I think of a woman who found her “dream” husband. She got married. The hope of happiness-ever-after didn’t come true. She found a successful marriage takes work.

What’s the lesson?

If you’re going to dream, put your faith in something that will come true. Put your faith in spiritual reality, not in vain human scenarios that fail to deliver.

God is the source of all the good you could ever hope to have.

You don’t have to wait for a promotion, a spouse, a house, a divorce, a pill, or some temporal situation to materialize before you can experience happiness, health and joy to the fullest. It’s all here and now, in Mind.

Life is not a dream to be lived in the future. Its spiritual reality experienced in the present. Go for it!

If I could work one more day, I’ll be satisfied.” Now this friend was one of my Nurse Aides who is taking care of me. I told her “More money will only lead you to wishing for more money. It doesn’t stop there. Only complete satisfaction in knowing with out a doubt that God care of your needs will bring satisfaction and nothing less than that will surffice.
