Pops was feeling itchy this morning. It was a cross from being stuck inside his room with the work he had created for himself and wanting to go outside with the beautiful blue skies and sunshine, just after a surprising dusting of snow yesterday morning. He wanted to get started but his work was not quite complete yet and so he pressed on with his work. He at least knew he would be spending the afternoon with family. He read chapter 5 of his Shaman book and got a couple more quotes about dreams:
“Think about how quickly a nighttime dream can change, how one moment you can be at the beach and the next you are walking through a green meadow in the mountains. We have the ability to change the waking dreams as quickly, but only when we realize that they are no more true than the sleeping dreams. I know this is a big bite of alternative reality that I am asking you to chew and swallow. After all, if it’s so easy, why can’t we change the war in the Middle East, or violence in America, simply by dreaming it differently? The answer is we can, but enough of us have to be holding the new dream of peace.”
“To wake up and transform the dream you first have to find yourself in the dream.”
“When you understand that your safety is no longer dependent on others or on external circumstances, on gated communities or armies, on forever vows or love or friendship, then you can transform the dream of security.”
“Our dream of reality is forged by these three fundamental human needs – security, permanence, and love. We all want to live forever, safe and secure, loved unconditionally, never aging or having to face our mortality. We try various ways to keep our daydreams from becoming nightmares – sometimes creative, sometimes hilarious in retrospect. Inevitably, we are faced with having to admit the daydreams have reached their sell-by date. Then we open up to the possibility of a new dream: the sacred dream that at the beginning may not seem real, but is absolutely true.”
After Pops read his book, he went to search for videos for his daily post. He noticed a video posted by Boho Beautiful celebrating their one million subscribers. Pops took a look into their channel and found it uplifting. He found this message from Julian and Mark, the creators of Boho Beautiful.
Our journeys have somehow intertwined right here... And even if its just for this fleeting moment. Through these pixels, through our finger tips. We are still fire. We are love. We are not only living, we are trying to explore what it means to be alive. We create content that we hope will inspire others. To change and motivate people’s perceptions of possibility. The possibility of themselves, their life, and the world around them.
Pops thought their message and their video titled “I Believe” would tie in perfectly to the sacred dream that so many others and Pops were dreaming.
Do they see what we see?
