“If you limit your actions in life to things that nobody can possibly find fault with, you will not do much!” Lewis Carroll wrote. Carroll warns us from living in fear and invites us to dare living life to the fullest. Indeed, if you lead your life to please others, well, stop. No need to apologize for being you, for doing things you like to do, and doing them the way you like to do them. If you want to dye your hair red or green, do it. If you want to take a belly dancing class, go do it. If you want to go swimming with the dolphins, plan a trip. If you have a secret passion, go live it. If you hate your job, imagine a different one.
It is so easy to find excuses. And sometimes it takes a while to fulfill a dream. But dreaming (with intent) is not only fun but the groundwork for fulfilling your dream (see a previous blog post "amazing intent" on this). We are often not so good with the imagining part. But that's the part that sets things in the universe into motion. The better you imagine what you want to manifest the more real it becomes in your mind.
Lewis Carroll's Alice asks the Cheshire Cat: "Where should I go?" to which the cat replies "That depends on where you want to end up." That's the whole point. If you can imagine where you want to end up you can get there. But you must imagine your goal. Otherwise the universe doesn't get a clear message. Dream on! That's the beginning to getting from here to there.
