I Live my dream and sometimes my dream lives me.

Excerpt from Living Life as a Sacred Practice ~ www.Balboapress.com
“I am a dreamer who constantly dreams. The dream of Life mocks my reality and pushes me further in search of my awakening.”
My awakening is the flip side of life sometimes called reality. The sleep/wake stage outside of this dream state mimics reality.
The following quote from The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran refers to his dreams “And his soul cried out to them, and he said: “Sons of my ancient mother, you riders of the tides, how often have you sailed in my dreams. And now you come in my awakening, which is my deeper dream. Ready am I to go, and my eagerness with sails full set awaits the wind.” (Gibran, 1923)
The Poet awakens from his wishful dream for the mariner’s return. As the ship comes in He sees this as his ‘deeper dream’ and his longing to travel.
Is your consciousness your deeper dream or awakening?
Practice quiet sitting and reflection daily with the goal of emptying your mind. Begin after arising, find a quiet place, sit and focus on your breath. You will begin to feel relaxed. Sit in this relaxed state, as images or distractions enter your mind, dismiss them. Remain in this state of quietude for as long as you can.
Repeat, during the day and in the evening before bed. After a three-week period, you will begin to form a pattern. This practice will begin to help you live life from an awakened state of consciousness.
“Life will begin to live you and you can truly say “I live my dream every day and sometimes my dream lives me.” This means your dream and your reality ARE one.
