Facing the conflict within our own mind

Do your dreams feel trapped within your mind? Are they bursting at the seams to escape the confines of your inner subconscious? I once read that our dreams are ideas we have when we are not putting up barriers and reasons why it will not work, or more damagingly why I cannot do it. We all face this conflict on a daily basis, but there are some dreams we have that just keep banging on the door of your heart, screaming for your attention. And if the heart doesn’t listen the idea or dream tries your brain and then the very core of your being, your soul.

For a dream you have, unless attempted, will never go away. When we were born everything was possible. We were told touch this, feel that, taste everything. Until of course we get to the age where we are told ‘don’t touch this, that or the other.’ And the barriers begin to be built in our minds. But no matter the conditioning we face, the teaches we are taught it is human instinct to want to explore. The exploration of our dreams is what every great person in history did differently from you or me today.

They were no better in any way, no more privileged, no more capable than anyone else. But they listened and then the acted. They didn’t always succeed, but the ones they didn’t achieve no longer knocked on the doors of their soul, but they made room for the dreams they did achieve. So make sure you make room for every dream by trying to activate, and maybe even realize, the ones currently knocking on your heart.

  1. I had the dream of writing a novel and due to unemployment I had the time and freedom to be able to realize that dream…my next dream is finding someone who publishes it. πŸ™‚ But even if that dream is never realized I still have one printed out copy that I can hold in my hands and be proud I accomplished what I set out to do. πŸ™‚ My fav pix: 1st in 3rd row and 3rd in last row. πŸ™‚


    1. You know when I was between work I explored things that normally I wouldn’t and that experience helped me more than I could ever know at the time. It was only later in my new job that things moved in a direction that I was able to understand better due to that experience. It is amazing how things work! I am sure your book will be on shelfs for all to read when you least expect it to happen.
      I love the Wizard of Oz picture, it is my brothers favorite movie so I had to include it! πŸ™‚

      Take care Alan.


  2. I’m living my dream today. Great article. I found that I’ve held several dreams in my life at different stages of my life. Once accomplished, a new dream then emerges. It’s a wonderful thing.
    I use the tag, FaithDream just for this reason.
    Thanks for writing another brilliant article.

    1. I knew you would comment on the bookshelf. Actually when I saw it, as I was browsing online, I thought to myself,”I know who will like this!”
      The wall art is incredible!!
      I believe in your dream
      Take care Alan.


  3. Very well said. Dreams and aspirations are great. They make us feel good and give us motivation and direction. They can often become challenging, but challenges are what we live for. I believe that it is possible to make (maybe not every one) your dreams/wishes come true. One just has to decide how much effort they are willing to put forth to achieve them. Blood, Sweat & Tears, right?
