When the Dream Gets Bigger and the Climb Longer December 30, 2010

It’s like climbing a mountain and you don’t know exactly what lies ahead. The cliffs have jagged edges and are very steep with the rocky bottom no where in sight.   You reach one peak and discover there’s another one looming even higher in front of you.  Are we being told to stop, turn around, go back?  Or is it a test of will power, inner strength, perserverance, confirmed craziness?   You trip and fall, dragging yourself through the murky water.  What’s that old Buddhist proverb? “Fall down 7 times, get up 8”.  Good thing I’m not counting.  Brush the dirt off your bloody knees and get back up!   Like at a railroad track, STOP and LISTEN for signs that you’re on the right track, or shift tracks and keep puttin’ one foot in front of the other.  We don’t need to know how we’re going to get there but it would be alot more comforting, for sure!    Sometimes a dream can feel like that mountain with a winding path that seems endless at times and questions our own sanity…or should I say mine?     

This is when the gift of a qualified Mountain Guide is important…even with dreams.  Ageless Dreamer is grateful they have perhaps found a Mountain Guide to help them over their own mountain and through the jungle of tigers and bears, Oh My!   I’m going to lean on a quote that George Seaton said and is used in the the movie Miracle on 34th Street: “Faith is believing in things, when common sense tells you not to.”   Call me a dreamer with faith, I guess.  Thanks, George.
