“We need (wo)men who can dream of things that never were.” Keats

DecPost2_Mission On Earth

A client* was telling me about someone laughing at her for being very excited by the Paulo Coelho quote I posted last week. She was upset and shocked by the strength of reaction from the person she had been talking to, especially as it was something that really resonated with her and had given her happiness so it was very upsetting to her that this person who is meant to be a supportive presence in her life was so aggressive.

She asked me how I am always positive and happy, and how I am able to give an honest answer about how I view the world when talking to someone skeptical or whose beliefs and outlook on life revolves around the ‘3D’.

It’s a question I have been asked many times, in many forms, by people starting their journey- how do I hold to my Truth, my Self, my alternate way of living in a world full of cynics?

Firstly, as I said to her and say to you all now: I am not always happy! But no matter what emotion is going on, I am always positive- or at least, most of the time!

I used to fluctuate a lot between joy and despair when I was younger. I was diagnosed with depression at 17 and was on medication for that until I was 29. In the approach to 30, I knew I wanted my life to change. I knew I was at a crossroads: I could keep living the life that felt like a lie- being in a world where money and superficial stuff was deemed the most important and I constantly felt lost and out of place, or find a new way of living so the part of me which had been crying since I was little, could be free, could be living a life of truth. My Truth.

I went to an osteopath, the wonderful Jessica Hartup, and realised that she didn’t think anything I had to say about the world as I saw it was mad. She also agreed that the worshipping of money, items, how people look, violence, aggression, bullying, non-supportiveness were all totally contradictory to her worldview too.

This simple yet profound conversation changed my whole life. That was the last day I took medication. It was the last day I felt alone. From that point on, I knew I was not alone. I knew that the answer to living the life I wanted was simple. I just had to live it!

I don’t acknowledge the cynical worldviews as part of my world!

I see and know a lot of people that build their world around those 3D beliefs that the system, no matter how much they may despise and rant about it, is as it is and cannot change. How reality is the strange world where we have a lot of ‘shoulds’ and little power or control over our lives- or even our actions!

This ‘reality’ is just not true for me. I acknowledge there are a lot of people tied up in these beliefs but to me, it is a self-perpetuating reality. I, like all of us, can only go by my experience of the world. And from my experience, I know we can move outside of that system- and that actually it’s a lot easier than we are conditioned to believe! We are here to dream up our own world- it can be whatever we want it to be.

This quote from John Keats is on my notebook that comes with me everywhere, as I find it a great source of inspiration:

“The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need (edit: wo)men who can dream of things that never were.”

John Keats

Know that we need more dreamers. More people following and actioning their dreams. We need people to unite in intention for a beautiful life for each and every person on this planet- starting with ourselves.

Many scoff at the idea that group intention can make a difference. Some get really angered by it. If you are at a point in your journey where you don’t feel ready to talk about your thoughts in an environment that’s not supportive: don’t!

It is important that we all become self-sufficient again. You need to nurture your Self, nurture your dreams, have your utopia (whatever that looks like) firmly ingrained within, before you go talking to others about it. We are the creators of our own lives, of our own world- and we are most definitely the only one able to live the life we are born into.

We all know that alternative ideas to the collective consciousness way of living can cause huge reactions in people- not because people are aggressive, mean or rude but because people are fearful. It is scary having your worldview threatened. And a lot of people can’t hear “I would like to live differently” without hearing “how you are living is wrong” because so many people are caught up in judgment. It is really important to remember this- and really important to try to be conscious enough not to judge others!

We all have the right to choose how we want to live, so long as we don’t infringe on anybody else’s life. Nobody has the answer for anyone other than themselves. We can look to others who seem to be living a life similar to what we would like and talk to them. Ask questions. Take the answers that resonate and leave the rest.

Trust in your Self. Trust in your dreams- guard and nurture them. Surround yourself with people who will support you on your journey through this life. And when in doubt, find inspiration in Keats:

“The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need (edit: wo)men who can dream of things that never were.”

With love and light,
