In the Time of Dreamers

2 Jan

The world, as we know it, is coming to an end. It is time to change: to let go of what once worked, but no longer does. Maybe some of those things that we have been taught are antiquated philosophies with little relevance for the present and are irrelevant in the days to come. Maybe it is time to realize that the life we seek does not exist in the way we have always done things…otherwise we’d already have it. Maybe we have to walk out into the unknown to find the world we have been seeking.

For many years we have scoffed at dreamers and believers with blind faith. We have mocked their beliefs, we have shook our heads at their lofty affirmations, and we have allowed our cynicism to prevail. We have been delending upon what we already know and what has already been proven, trying to twist and shape it into what we had hoped it would be. That is a perversion of the truth. And I submit to you that the real solution to any problem will not be found in a facade. It is time to accept our losses, admit our failures, and let go of the certainty of our own misery- which has gained us nothing- to pursue the uncertain possibility of achieving everything.

Now is the time of the dreamers. Everyone’s dream will not be the same and it does not have to be. It is not about the dream as much as it is about the dreaming. When we are brave enough to dream out loud, we declare that something inside of us is stronger and greater than the world. When we are brave enough to dream out loud, we realize that everything that has ever been created was a thought that was driven into creation by the will of some dreamer who dared to see the world not as it is, but as it could be; a dreamer with a fool’s hope to believe that what could only be seen by them could become tangible reality.

So dream on dreamers. Let the dream killers and nay sayers mock you, let them judge you, let them crucify you. Your shame and suffering will be well worth it. Remember that it is the fear and ignorance of their limited perceptions that keep them from understanding that which you have already discovered: the future is but a dream and only those who believe in the power of dreams shall inherit the future.

Dreamers have Violet Ambitions.

    […] In The Time of Dreamers, people will begin to exercise the power of their wills until their will becomes a creating force. That force will grow so strong that it will overtake reality and what was an intangible thought will come into existence. That is how dreams come true. […]
