never really matters with dreams

dream you must

======

 

“Besides, it doesn’t matter if it’s real.

It never does with dreams.

 

They aren’t anything anyway but lifesavers to cling to so you don’t drown.

 

Life is an ocean, and most everyone’s hanging on to some kind of dream to keep afloat.”

 

 

Tim Tharp

======================

 

Well.

 

I have never seen this quote before. Awesome. Fucking awesome.

 

Sure.

dream hands

It’s kind of a tough world out there today for dreamers and dreaming … in a world where pragmatism, outcomes and measurement are put on the pedestal of Life.

 

 

In fact.

 

I could argue that today’s world not only discourages thinking about dreams but it fucks up how we do think about dreams when we actually think about them.

 

Dreams used to be … well … dreams. Sometimes it is difficult for me to find the right words on this.

 

Dreams were more about wishes and desires and imagining what could be in some intangible sense. I don’t mean unicorns or rainbows type stuff but it also wasn’t always pot of gold at the end of some rainbow.

 

Today?

 

In today’s world dreams are more often about something tangible.

 

I dream of winning something.

 

I dream about having gobs of money.

 

I dream about some outcome or something received.

 

I dream of an award.

 

It is no longer dreaming something intangible.

 

Like.

 

I dream of being an Olympian <not winning something>.

 

I dream of being on the front cover of Time magazine <not gobs of money>.

 

I dream about being the best I can be <no reward or award attached>.

 

I actually believe I am on to something <for once>.dreams key

 

That said … I started thinking about dreams and dreaming and went out and I researched exactly what a dream is:

 

=======

Dreams (imaginings, desires) are the potentials that are too intense to be imperceptible. Having intensified to the objective reduction threshold, a desire collapses into an action.

The nobler an individual, the higher the objective reduction threshold and the more organizedly complex the imagination.

Wikiquotes

========

 

Step one:

potentials too intense to be imperceptible.’

 

 

Step two:

‘a desire collapses into an action.”

 

I point that out because in our outcome driven world inevitably a dream is pushed into a corner being bludgeoned with “what are you going to do to attain that dream !!??!!

 

Look.

 

I am all for taking steps to attain your dream but the definition suggests that the intense dreams <think the ones that are truly worth paying attention to> inevitably collapse into an action.

 

In other words.

 

I don’t make a plan the dream begets a plan.

 

In other words.

 

Reality is shaped by a dream <we don’t shape reality to ‘force’ a dream into being>.

“Thats the problem with dreams” he said, “Reality just can’t compete.”

============

 

Bad one less CorruptDreamLife, and reality, pushes and pulls us in many directions.

And, more often than not, Life, and reality, places more stop signs in front of us then ‘this way to your dream’ signs.

 

That means … to have a dream that is big enough to reshape reality is … well … uhm … means that the potentials that are too intense to be imperceptible.

 

It isn’t about money.

 

It isn’t about some sating some ego driven idea.

 

It is about having intensified to the objective reduction threshold, a desire collapses into an action.

 

And that is where dreamers know something that non dreamers do <part 1> … nowhere in this definition or Life equation is ‘fear.’

 

Far too many times dreams get attached to thoughts like ‘not pursued due to fear …”

 

And that is where dreamers know something that non dreamers do <part 2> … nowhere in this definition or Life equation is ‘courage.’

 

Far too many times dreams get attached to “people who had the courage to pursue …”

 

Dreams have nothing to do with fear or courage.

 

In fact … dreams … the real meaningful ones … are out of our conscious control. They are a force in and of themselves. They beget the action by sheer force of intensity.

 

Big, small or in between dreams, the meaningful ones, may have more power than anything else in the world. And while much of the world looks at dreamers as wistfully delusional … it is more likely than not purposeful willfully delusional.

 

We dreamers dream with purpose. Not for outcome but of what can be. And when we get a dream right … or maybe better said … when the dream is right for us … well … there is no obstacle too big … no fear too great and no courage is needed … for the dream itself is the energy forward.

 

=========

 

“Well, maybe it started that way. As a dream, but doesn’t everything.

Those buildings. These lights. This whole city.

 

Somebody had to dream about it first. And maybe that is what I did. I dreamed about coming here, but then I did it.”

James and the Giant Peachold thoughts dream big

======

 

This is really hard to explain to non dreamers.

 

But.

 

It doesn’t really matter … never does with dreams.

 

======

 

The dreamer dies, but never dies the dream,

Though Death shall call the whirlwind to his aid,

Enlist men’s passions, trick their hearts with hate,

Still shall the Vision live! Say never more

That dreams are fragile things. What else endures

Of all this broken world save only dreams!
