Little did I know that when I created my Dreambook, the book itself would start teaching me things. Perhaps I should have known based on my impatient motivation to complete the book. As you can see in the picture, time is ticking.
My first realization is that much of what I dream for is already taking place in my life. It’s a matter of deleting the mental models or long-outdated thoughts about how I view myself. For example, on one of the pages in the Relationship section, I jotted the names of just the people I feel closest to, and the page got so full! I was jolted awake to see that even though I am basically an introvert and sometimes think of myself as a hermit, albeit an artistic one, this is really not the truth of the matter. Relationships that have rhythms of their own keep me inspired, uplifted and comforted.
And secondly, now that the book is completed for the time being, I don’t have to think about it anymore. I look at it once in awhile or share it with a friend and elucidate the dream. But in terms of desire, or working towards the goals, I’ve turned it over to Spirit. My order is in with the Universe, and I can be at peace. It’s actually brought me right back to the present, living life daily and often asking, “What’s next?” rather than feeling an obligation to work on those dreams. They are already being worked on! And my assignment is to live as authentically as possible, only guided occasionally by a word or image that has been part of this process. It reminds me of a Tibetan sand painting – create it and then let it go, sending the message to Heaven.
Keep dreaming my friends!
