Seeing The Dream



The wherewithal to do anything and everything my little heart desires is there, just waiting for me to tap into it with the power of my attention to bring it into physical manifesta­tion.  (I have been asked why I always say "physical manifesta­tion?"  If "manifestation" in and of itself  implies a  physical appearance. The Teachings speak of every thought becoming made manifest. Since it is a well known fact that not every wish, thought or desire that we have we see with the physical eyes, I choose to see the difference by stating it in that manner.)  The knowing that all is provided, and all means physical, spiritual, mental and emotional. This leaves me with a sense of security and well being.   

We have been taught, by the social consciousness, that in order to feel content­ment, which is what the feeling of security boils down to; we must have much of the world's goods, and no area of concern in our experience. That is a little less than the truth. In order to feel contented, one must be self accepting and self forgiving. The errors and foibles of everyday life are not enough to take from us our God given peace. If we were not so identified with what we see and feel, we would know this all the time. Thus to claim contentment and security, and to know that is the truth about my emotional state, is to acknowledge that everything within the universe is in the care and keeping of the All Wise Creator, and that makes everything in their rightful place.

I can hear the protestations now! Does not that make for a state of complacency, where there are no goals, no ambition, no striving, merely a flaccid, placid do nothing existence.  No, a thousand times no!   

What a feeling of security and contentment does is allow one to pursue one's dreams from a calm state of knowing that the dream and its fulfillment are one. To have the dream, or desire is to have gotten it from the Father in the first place. Thus every dream comes with the energy to fulfill itself. Why then are there so many unfulfilled dreams?  And what about that old saw, that God does not want you to have whatever it is that you dream of having?  

I say there are unfulfilled dreams because we hear imperfectly. When the perfect dream is placed within the physically oriented aspect of consciousness by the Greater Self, it is filtered through all the gunk of our beliefs about how things should be. And there is a lot of gunk in most of us. This gunk so colors the dream that we think more of the how than the what. The what is the completed dream, and all The Teachings on visualizations emphasize seeing the finished dream. Seeing the finished dream aids and abets the feelings of security and contentment, and provides that feeling with the fertile soil in which to grow and flourish.
