Imagine a Dream

Imagine something even money can’t buy

Imagine not wanting for anything

Imagine having what you need as well as desire

Without ever having to ask

This is life. We just don’t realize it yet.

The false masks aren’t needed

The money can’t buy friends or happiness… no matter how cliché that sounds

The empty smiles can’t fill the emptiness

So then you ask… where is it? How do I get it?

You get glimpses of it in every true moment

Every genuine smile

Every wholehearted laugh

Everytime the word “love” graces your ears

These are tiny everyday treasures

That should be cherished

It’s amazing how things seemingly insignificant

Can be the determining factor

Between a lie we have believed as reality

And a truth that can make life a dream.

 

So what was that piece from my journal about hey? I am a believer of manifestation. That we are the creators of our own heavens and hells. That we have trained our minds, or have had our minds trained, to think that this seemingly tangible world is our reality and the energies we exchange and the power behind thought and intention are the dreams. That money buys us stuff that make us happy and that love can’t fill our wallets. Depends on our perception I guess. What eyes we’re looking at the world through.

I’d invite you to take a second to stop. Right now…. Just stop whatever you’re doing. Feel the body you are in. Be conscious of what that body is doing. Are you playing with your hands as you read this? Are you tapping your foot or moving your mind elsewhere? Are you splitting your attention between multiple things?

Now… Inhale. Deep breath in. Feel the air as it enters your nostrils, travels into you head and down your throat feeling that rise in the belly.

.exhale.

Quiet down all that chatter in there. Listen to that silence. We’re so busy filling ourselves with thoughts and goals and “next steps” and we feel as though that is what is fueling us… keeping us going… but in this moment as you just take a breath and embody the stillness… experience how the silence actually fills you. Allows you to feel whole… even if just for that one breath.

I asked you to do that simply because experience is the best teacher. We can hear something, read something, talk about something and we can comprehend it intellectually but only through actual experience do we start to fully understand it. There are countless moments in our day that we can stop and bring our awareness to the stillness. Embody the bliss that comes in those moments. In time, those moments become minutes, those minutes become hours, those hours become days and those days then become a life. A lifetime of bliss through awareness and gratitude emitted through silence.

Take time today to breathe. To be still. To be grateful.

Until further inspiration hits….

be.love.
