A Million Dreams

A Million Dreams…

This great song by Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, and Ziv Zaifman expresses dreams of a new world.

A new world that we are creating, together. All the time.

Every day we are creating reality – our reality, which contributes to the collective reality.

What are you contributing?

Here are a couple posts I’ve written about dreaming, to help you begin:

The Power of The Dream

Your Dreams Are Yours

& here is the beginning lyrics of the song A Million Dreams🎶

“I close my eyes and I can see,

The world that’s waiting up for me

That I call my own

Through the dark, through the door

Through where no one’s been before,

But it feels like home…

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy,

They can say, they can say I’ve lost my mind,

I don’t care, I don’t care, so call me crazy,

We can live in a world that we design…

‘Cause every night I lie in bed,

The brightest colours fill my head,

A million dreams are keeping me awake..

I think of what the world could be,

A vision of the one I see,

A million dreams is all it’s gonna take..

Oh a million dreams for the world we’re gonna make…”

I prefer Pink’s version, here.

To Blame or Not To Blame

“They blame those who remain silent, they blame those who speak much, they blame those who speak in moderation. There is none in the world who is not blamed.”
– Buddha

This Buddha quote reminds me of an Aristotle quote: 

“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.”

We live in a hyper critical world of insecure projections. 

^This makes it hard for any of us to live. 

Because when we go against the grain – when we don’t conform to how they say we should live – we get criticized & blamed.

The crabs in the bucket try to pull us back down into the bucket with them – for whatever reason – mostly fear.

But we weren’t meant to live in that bucket. 

We we meant to live free.

We Are meant to live free.

So let’s do a little less blaming, and a little more living.

Live With Purpose

“Live with purpose. Don’t let people or things around you get you down.”
– Albert Einstein

This world is filled with people blindly bouncing off each other – reacting to stimuli.

Then there are people who break out from reacting & are able to live with purpose.

We are here to live with purpose.

Less reacting – More responding.

With purpose.

Integration

The definition of integration, from Oxford dictionary is “the action or process of integrating.” & Integrate is defined as “combine (one thing) with another so that they become whole.”

The process of integration can take time, but it’s always happening. 

Within these CoachT posts I bring to you what inspires me – ideas, people, places, experiences, and dreams. 

One experience that highly influenced my life was my first experience with psilocybin mushrooms. You can read about my first psilocybin trip here.

I’ve also been involved as an activist towards legalizing plant medicines, because I know their healing qualities firsthand. 

I’ve created a pen name, Psil Silva, where I share my experiences & add my two cents into life, in regards to the area of natural plant medicines like psilocybin mushrooms.

My name, your name, these aren’t as important as what is beyond our names – the peace beyond understanding.

& this is why it’s hard for many to understand – because it’s literally beyond understanding. 

It’s an experience. 

Anyway, I hope to integrate my websites, books, & ideas, to share the best of what I learn, with you.

It may be useful & it may not, so, as Bruce Lee says “absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is essentially your own.” 

It’s all related, all connected, and one of the short books I wrote that you may like best is titled The 7 Psychedelic Meditations.

Check it out here on Amazon & please leave a review. 

Let me know what you think! 🙂

Persevere

“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.” 
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

You lost the game.

You won it next week.

You fell down.

You got back up.

You’ve been hated.

You’ve been loved.

Why is it easier for people to cling to the negative?

It could be, like Tupac said, that “fear is stronger than love.”

Or it could be the result of societies current dogmas.

Societies change, history shows us this, but it always begins at an individual level.

You may have been defeated once, or even hundreds of times, but life is not done with you yet.

Don’t confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. 

Persevere.

Direction

“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.”
– Lao Tzu

The direction of your life depends on you and your vision.

(if you aren’t happy with your life currently, a new vision might help) 

Dream.

Pray.

Dream some more. 

Pray some more.

And now you’re on your way.

Do It Today

“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
– Lao Tzu


What dream do you have?

Are you taking actions towards your dream?

What is one thing you can do today to begin turning dreams into reality?

It won’t happen overnight, but it won’t happen until you first have the dream.

4 Important Pieces Of Career Advice I Learned While Interning With Ryan Holiday

When I landed an editorial internship with Ryan Holiday in 2018, I felt like I made it. Fame and wealth were on the way!

At the time, I felt like I had accomplished what was necessary and was on my way to the top. What I didn’t know at the time was the heroic responsibility that comes with this type of work, and I momentarily lost sight of my purpose.

What I learned is that the life-changing writing work we do as authors, writers, transformers, and creators is why we do it

It’s not about getting famous and wealthy. It’s truly not. 

It’s about becoming the best version of ourselves and creating work that helps others do the same. The fame and wealth, if meant to be, are by-products.

Now, as you adventure toward your purpose, your why, here are four things I learned while interning with Ryan Holiday that may serve as guides.

Where are you going?

“If you don’t know where you are going any road can take you there” 
― Lewis Carroll

Alice wandered around wonderland for awhile, not knowing where she was going. She experienced extraordinary wonders beyond belief, but she didn’t know what they all meant.

She didn’t know where she was going – she didn’t have a planned destination, so that is exactly what she experienced in wonderland.

Once you realize your dream, keep them with you. Your dreams are roadmaps on route to your destination, and they are yours for a reason.

Believe in your dreams, and watch them come true.
