The Wisdom of Dreaming

“Sometimes dreams are wiser than waking.” – Black Elk

What does it mean to dream?

What does it be to awaken?

How can you know the difference?

Good question – you might find the answers within yourself one day.

For now, here are a few more quotes about dreams and the power of imagination:

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.”
— Albert Einstein

“Imagination rules the world.”
— Napoleon Bonaparte

“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.”
— Carl Sagan

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
— Einstein

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
— Buddha

“Thoughts are but dreams till their effects be tried.”
— William Shakespeare

“Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.”
Mahatma Gandhi

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.
