Are we awake or dreaming? Perhaps we are dreaming we are awake? Maybe yesterday we were dreaming or tomorrow we'll be awake. Whether awake or dreaming our consciousness as an integral part of existence goes on. Here is where I try to sort out my understanding of what just is. Namaste!
You can try to map out every single detail of a goal, mitigate every potential failure and upset and even develop multiple contingency plans to ensure you have complete control of a desired outcome and it can still go wrong. Sometimes it isn't the destination that matters, it's the journey...it's the dreaming...it's the planning...its the focus and determination to learn about yourself in the process. So, when life comes along and upsets your plans, find the love within to guide you and trust yourself to realize your truest dreams regardless. Don't ever give up and realize you can't plan for every contingency but you can be open to suggestions the universe will inevitably throw you for your highest growth. Stay positive. Be positive. Love yourselves no matter what it is you face and you cannot really fail.~Blessings!!!
