Dream weaving – Blog No. 8

Cat in the Hat

It makes sense to turn your dreams into your reality, otherwise what is the point in having them?  It is not easy to realise your dreams – you need first of all to have had some, and the word ‘had’ infers that your dreaming for your future should have started the day your first breath was taken, and second of all you need the stamina to maintain those dreams in their pure form for the duration of their development.  That development can take decades, centuries.  Lifetimes.  Especially when your dreams are for the betterment of everything.  It is empowering when you see your dreams begin to manifest your actuality.  It is proof – if you should require such from yourself – that your path is right on track and your efforts have been worth every depredation.  It is proof, too, that those self-same efforts have been greater than every single one of the disappointments encountered along the way.

When dreaming, remember that it is not helpful to dream up shit that can never be realised.  Dreaming up and believing in bullshit is the most efficient way to destroy the striving of your soul.  A soulful sense of worth is nurtured by the setting of achievable goals.  The size of the dreams you have depends on the capacity you have to see them through.  If you give up after five minutes then you must understand your dreams will be pea-sized.  If you equip yourself to stay the distance, your dreams will have no ceiling.  It is difficult to explain this concept to small-minded idiots, but try anyway.  They may still fold after five minutes because they are weak-minded, or simply not equipped with what it takes to build sky castles – or climb them – but at the end of the road when they are faced with their failures they will know not to bitch and whine.   Blame for their failures can be ignored entirely – they own their weaknesses and are wholly responsible for their defeat.

Warp and weft.  This way, and that.  How you weave your dreams is obviously vital to you and your particular environment – and to those close to you.  With this in mind, it is essential to ensure that what you dream has broad-spectrum benefits.  That way, should any of your dreams get waylaid or ‘led astray’, you can be sure that their far-reaching effects will still reach you, no matter where you happen to be.  Dreams are personal.  They resonate with your destiny.  That means stolen dreams – hijacked lives – will, by their very nature of being, still be delivered to the right recipient when the time is right.  In the meanwhile – until the thefts and thieves are exposed – dreams that belong to another may well wreak havoc on the lives of those thieves, and the lives of those close to them.  Remember that.  And don’t bitch and whine when you get what you deserve.  In this world – we all do.  Eventually.

Temperament – Blog No. 74

553595-24219-18What is your temperament?  Do you like who it is that you are?  If you should like yourself some of the time, that is a start.  If you like who you are a great deal – yours is the right space.  You cannot like yourself when you behave badly, try as you might.  Your knowing, your moral fortitude will not allow you to.  If you have no moral compass, it must be said that no one can help you.  A moral compass (or the lack of one) is inherent.  Remember, too, that it is your choice how you behave – not another’s.  Another’s bad behaviour towards you is not permission for you to act like an arsehole.  Try not to let yourself drop your standards – or your guard – in the name of petty retaliation.  Choose your reactions; ensure that they suit the occasion.

You can lie to your heart’s content, you can make excuses for yourself and your short-comings, you can find reasons to justify your bad behaviour.  All of this is possible – and very do-able.  We all do it and we are all good at it.  Have you heard how adept you are at justifying your actions so that you can feel less responsible for bad behaviour?  It is natural to try and allocate blame somewhere – or delegate it – the need is almost instinctive.  It takes a dedicated human being to treat blame as your own bedfellow.  How often do you sit with yourself and accept responsibility for your strained relations with others, your rudeness, your intolerance?  How often will you apologise for your misdemeanours?  And I am talking about apologising to yourself, as well as to others.

Your temperament is not only your nature.  It is not just your personality.  It is your whole, your calling card in this world.  It is the reason people will find you attractive, or not.  It is why you will be successful, or not.  If you have a shit temperament, do something about it.  Your reactions are within your power.  Each of them.  If you do not like how you behave in certain situations – either avoid putting yourself in those situations or transform the way you feel about what is happening to you.  You change your viewpoint – particularly when it comes to the how and why of your behaviour(s) – and you change the way you are perceived in this world.  That can make all the difference.
