So I’m still moving toward a goal in my life….it also seems pretty lost in the mist at this point, though I’m running toward it the best I know how. I think the main idea is to have a job I love to work at, that provides for my needs, while I begin a campaign to sell my art and writing, and develop my skills.
The night before last, I had a dream–it seemed so unusual. I was seeing a beautiful bay horse running along under a blue sky. And I really wanted to catch him! There were people around me who saw what was going on. They even said “you really want to catch that horse, don’t you?” But the same people started poking at my longing to ride a wild horse as a foolish dream: “why do you want that?” They discouraged me from pressing forward with my goal.
When I woke up, I realized that the practical life application was super clear. I keep surrounding myself with my own fears (aka the people in the dream).
The horse is the dream I want to catch, or the next level of the career. Perhaps he’s even a complete change of fortune(the word here meaning quality of life, not just riches). I can see him, but he’s moving faster than I am.
How to catch a wild dream?
I think I have to begin with separating myself from the fears. I think the dream won’t come near me while they are around.
The nest step may involve luring the dream to me, rather than relentlessly pursuing it.
Maybe this could be the basis for a new way of thought for me.
It certainly could be a way of career hunting that I hadn’t tried. Breaking away from the crowd and attracting the right match.
Well, if I write a book about it, you heard it here first! :)
