The Dream: To Get Along

(If we all dream the same dream, it will come true…)

If we let go of the past, new dreams can come true.

If we let go of the need to judge, we feel accepted.

If we don’t need to control, we feel more relaxed with uncertainty.

If we let go of our individual stories, we can appreciate the big story.

If we do not blame, (but understand) we begin in the present.

When we establish clear boundaries and are respectful of others, we understand how-we-do-not-need-to-take-things-personally.

When we listen patiently, thoughtfully and kindly, we hear what is being said and can respond, rather than react.

When we let go of the need to make someone wrong, we lose the need to be right.

When we validate another’s personal sorrow and loss we discover our compassion and empathy for them.

When we redefine a relationship, we sometimes redefine love.

When we forgive the past we find that the past had positive lessons in it for the present.

When we pause our apprehensions and suspend our doubts, we find safety in the moment.

When we remember:This Conversation is between you and I, not you and I and Others, then the dialogue stays pure.

We must all remember:There is no High Road for any of us to take.There is only The Road and it is made of tracks, laden with yellow bricks and-we-are-all-on-it—together.

We can all create our peace wherever there is discord when we are able to redefine who we are in each other’s lives and not need a relationship to be based on a history, society or any past conditioning.

With every Happy Ending there is always a New Beginning!

(so let’s start now…)

So, when that Clock is about to strike 12 and that noon train is approaching around the bend; the tracks are laden with golden bricks pointing in a Direction and your life is asking you: Decide, Decide, Decide...who are you going to listen to? Your heart or your mind?

(only time will tell...)
