What is YOUR dream?

“Life is a difficult assignment. We are fragile creatures, expected to function at high rates of speed, and asked to accomplish great and small things each day. These daily activities take enormous amounts of energy. Most things are out of our control. We are surrounded by danger, frustration, grief, and insanity as well as LOVE, HOPE, ecstasy, and wonder. Being fully human is an exercise in humility, suffering, grace, and great humor. Things and people all around us die, get broken, or are lost. There is no safety or guarantees. The way to accomplish the assignment of truly living is to engage fully, richly, and deeply in the living of your dreams. We are made to DREAM and to live those dreams.”


So, what is YOUR dream?

  1. Love those stones. Do you keep them or leave them in random places for people to find? I love leaving a little surprise for someone who needs it. :-)

    My dream has always been to be happy in a whatever I do. I like to leave it open like that because it gives me a lifetime of dreaming and believing.

  2. Dreams change or if you’ve been fortunate enough to have one come true, you dream some more. Now that I’ve lived one dream, I’ll need to conjure up another. It will most definitely involve retirement and enjoying life to the fullest. I’m hoping it will exclude writing and photography, but whatever makes me happy is the goal.

    1. Interesting, and I sort of understand it. I once took a seminar on living the life of your dreams, and I flunked the intake quiz because I couldn’t come up with my “dream life.” I suppose, in many ways, I’m already in my dream life. How about you?

    1. No…actually I don’t. There will be no unhappiness, no depression, no deaths, no tears in jannah…. I dream of that. But why do you think it’s everyday?

    2. For me, when I walk in the woods, or spend time in nature, or allow my thoughts to quiet – that is where I find my paradise. Unhappiness, depression, death, tears – they are as much a part of my paradise as joy, happiness, life, smiles. I find that there is beauty in all of it.

    3. True…and deep. Really, but the real paradise…that’s the one I dream of. The one that exists above the sky :)
