“So I wasn’t dreaming, after all,” she said to herself, “Unless – unless we’re all part of the same dream. Only I do hope it’s my dream, and not the Red King’s!”
When Alice plaintively wonders whether everything she is experiencing is part of a great dream … the same dream, shared by many beings … she wonders whose ream it is. Just like Alice, we ought to be concerned about whether we are living our own dreams, making our own mistakes, following our own hearts, or simply doing what others believe we ought … and thus making their mistakes, following what their hearts think is best for us and living their dreams.
Some people and some societies are very powerful. Our culture would like us to live a certain dream – to marry, to have a home, a good job, and then die peacefully. But that dream, the collective dream or the dream of our rulers may not be your dream.
Remember your own dreams and wishes, and set about making sure they are governing your choices.
Many people will encourage you to head in a certain direction and live in a particular way that nearly everyone will agree is ‘right’. But you have your own dream: a life in which you will live a little more adventurously and strangely than many others. It is time to break free of the collective dream and live within your own. Belong to only one dream, magickal soul – belong to your own.
Finding you have been following a plan and a path that is not truly your own. Deciding to take steps to live in a way that is authentic and truly your own. Rebelling. Wishing to live in your own world. No longer making decisions, staying with people or in jobs that are not part of your dream. Not being directed or governed by the desires and dreams of others. Deciding to make some big changes toward following the path that is your soul’s true dream for its evolution this lifetime.
