Why Pursuing Safety Is a Trap!

When we renounce our dreams and find peace, we go through a short period of tranquility. But the dead dreams begin to rot within us and to infect our entire being. We then become cruel to those around us, and then we begin to direct this cruelty against ourselves. That’s when illnesses and psychoses arise. What we sought to avoid in combat – disappointment and defeat – come upon us because of our cowardice.Paulo Coelho

kill dreams –> hurt self & others

We all want to be safe and in seeking that safety we often sacrifice our dreams! We’re all afraid of life and of death. This fear is what burrows deep inside us and creates long lasting issues that emerge in different ways. When we can’t surface those fears, anger and other frustrations are the result which in turn hurt us and others.

the antidote

It’s a major travesty when we suppress our dreams and force them to become meaningless. The dreams arise from a deep creative place inside us, a place that itself springs from the divine. Many of our dreams are dreams of the divine. When we push such dreams away we deny God, we deny Universal Intelligence and we deny our own selves. So let’s rejuvenate our lost dreams; let’s rescue them from the abyss and let’s give them a new lease to life!
