Living the Dream………….

” Living the Dream”? What exactly does this mean? I have been hearing this a lot lately, now I know this saying has been around probably for as long as Mankind? But seriously what exactly does it mean, especially when we all have different dreams from each other.

For me living the dream would be on my own little Island with all I need and away from all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, that is within this society of today. Maybe for someone else it might be, being free to do whatever they want to do and whenever they want to do it, just maybe someones dream would be like the American Dream? Which consists of, a house, a white picket fence, a family and a pet, now what most take for granted is, they both still are a dream and we all dream differently, with no two dreams being alike.

Do dreams really come true? Well……………… The jury is still out deliberating on this one, only because everything that comes to us, is there for a reason, everything that happens to us happens for a reason, it is just that we have to find that reason, so we than can move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger than ever before. It’s the reason part that we take for granted and most of us, never truly understand this part, so we usually skip this this and move on to the next part of the journey, which then has us all never finding any kind of reason for anything at all. As we walk through this journey. People and things come across our paths, they all have a reason for crossing our paths and will just never…. Just happen, for instance………… Someone wins big on a lottery scratch ticket, this doesn’t happen just because you picked the right ticket, it happened for a reason and it’s up to you to find that reason, so you than can truly understand the phrase of ” Living the Dream”.

True that living the dream is a form of reality for us all with different outcomes for each of us, so now the next time someone says to you ” hey how are you doing”, you can respond in a different way with the same words of living the dream, as now you actually mean what you say, with a true reasoning for whatever dream you are living.

Most dreams usually happen at night while we are sleeping and when we wake, we usually do not remember what we dreamt of while we slept, so as we say to each other the words of, ” living the dream”, how can we actually live a dream if we are awake within reality? With a dream we either do not remember, or it is something fictitious that never really happens. I think maybe we all get so caught up within our own little worlds, with these worlds becoming our own little safe havens, that we then look at them kind of like being on our own little islands, as we try to escape all the ugliness and hatred that is around us today? We can day dream of something, but mostly of what a day dream is, we are escaping the ugliness of what is around us at the present time, either way we look at what a dream is, it is still something fictitious, so we than can escape whether for a short time, the reality of our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

” Living the dream is something we say to each other as it is only a fictitious reality and not true reality”

” Some may be fortunate enough to actually remember their nightly dreams, as most do not, a dream is still just a dream and not true reality”

” A day dream is our way of escaping our realities even just for a short time”

” Everything that comes to us and happens to us there is a reason for it, it then lies on us to find that reason so we can understand better our realities as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

Trekking through the Wilderness

 

As we wake at the crack of dawn and get ready for what lies ahead in the days journey, we first take solace, listen and look at what is around us. We then put a couple logs on the hot coals from last nights campfire, so we can put on some coffee and make some breakfast to fuel our inner tanks for the coming journey. It’s a beautiful morning with the morning sun reflecting off the branches and landing in spots along the Earths floor, as I put the pot of water on the fire to heat up for coffee, I suddenly hear some crackling of branches in the distance from where I am, Hmm!!! What could it be as I thought to myself? I stepped away from the immediate area of the campsite and became one with the surroundings around me, as I waited for whatever was there to show their head, I continued to hear the crackling of the branches getting closer and as they got closer I knew whatever it was was bigger than a little Critter like a Chipmunk. I waited still to see what was out there and as I waited i could see the steam coming from the pot of water on the fire, signaling that the water was ready for the coffee, but I didn’t want to give away my location to what was there and stayed put for now. What seemed like eternity of a wait, was in reality about thirty minutes of waiting and then out of the brush comes this thin legged animal, maybe about 150 to 200 pounds, and had its head down sniffing all in its path, it was a Deer, a female Doe to be exact, what a beautiful site and to think she didn’t know I was there, as she hadn’t sniffed my scent cause the breeze was going in the other direction, so I sat there and watched as the Doe did its thing before it headed back into the thick brush of the Wilderness it came from. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful way to start the day, as you get ready to take on the days journey yourself.

We all walk our paths along this journey of life, true there are some things that will derail us along our paths, but there are many more beautiful things that will have us in awe as we walk these paths of this journey. unfortunately when we get derailed along our paths, we lose sight of what is in front of us and we don’t look deeply into what we see. Instead we wander out of focus until we address what we need to, so we then can continue forward and truly look deeply into all that we see.

You don’t have to be within the Wilderness to see any beauty at all, you simply have to look deeply into what you see, so you than can see beauty, no matter where you are, or whatever you are doing. True beauty is all around us everywhere, but unfortunately through all the ugliness and we ourselves not looking deeply into what we see from the parts of the path that derailed us, we never give ourselves a chance to see this beauty and move forward blindly, with no true direction of where we are going.

We trek through the Wilderness to see all of Natures beauty, but everything that is around us, is the creation of God and he created all this, so we all can see true beauty everyday, as we walk our paths along this journey through life.  This ugliness we see today is the creation of we the people of this Society and we the people can stop this ugliness, just by stepping back, viewing all that is around us and instead of just glancing at what is around us, look deeply into what we see, fix what we need to fix, so we to like the Deer can continue along the path, through this journey of life.

 

” Beauty is everywhere around us, we simply have to look deeply into what we see”

” Waking at the crack of dawn to some is unthinkable, but it is where we focus on the true beauty of what is around us”

” When we don’t fix what we need to fix, we then get derailed along our paths we walk, which then creates all the ugliness we see around us”
