Readers of this blog know that I adhere to don Miguel Ruiz’s “The Four Agreements” (search in the blog for past posts on this topic) and I found the following quote to be of special interest:
Our dreams overlap and we each dream a part of the entire dream, the dream of the planet, which is made by the projection of billions of dreams. – don Miguel Ruiz
While Ruiz talks about our reality being the manifestation and interpretation of our mind, and tells us that we are all always living in a world that our mind “dreams”, I consider that what we seek to become (traditionally thought of as our goals or our “dreams of the future”) are part of our personal dream.
Along these same lines is The (what you wish will come true if you really believe it) which gained popularity as a book/CD/DVD called The Secret.
The basic premise of the Law of Attraction is this: What you dream/envision/truly desire in your mind’s eye will manifest itself in your life – and all you have to do is put your goals out to the universe and watch them unfold before your very eyes.
So, my question is this: if each of us individually has a dream for our life (love, prosperity, wisdom, health, etc) and we truly believe in it, what happens if these dreams collide or compete with those of others all vying for attention and fruition from the “universe”?
Is this hokey? What do you think? Can your mind manifest the future? If I envision a future of my dream job/career, living in a place of great natural beauty, in fine health, and surrounded by wondrous people who accept me unconditionally – is yearning for it enough to make it come true? Call me cynical but I just do not understand how the billions of dreams in the world (with conflicting goals and often at odds with each other) can all come true.
What do you think?
Have a great week,
