Hope you enjoy this week’s catch-up episode, talking about the dream world.
Happy New Year, amigos!
Hey guys, this is Alejandro, and this is the catch up ride, welcome back!
Ok, quick update, been really running against the clock to catch up everywhere, the business, updating the web, new suppliers, ad campaigns, blog posts here and on canicarte.com
so, I really have no time to cut some slack or even thinking about it!
“And that’s gooooooood!” like Clement Stone used to say and curious enough, the other day I came across another cool quote that really struck me by J W Goethe and he said that “The lazy always talk about what they think they will do; those who really do something have no time to talk even about what they do” I just thought, “Hey that’s so true!”
Been reading a lot too, and that’s always good for me, you know, keeping healthy.
This week I’d like to address the relation between the visible and the invisible worlds. And how those worlds can work together constructively or destructively, how they cooperate or don’t cooperate with our intentions. I’m talking about the real world and the dream world, here folks. And let’s just stop, really stop and think about it. Ask ourselves, is there a connection between the dreams and reality, physical matter??
Talking about quotes and dreams, let me bring the lines by Mr Herbert Kaufman, directly from the intro of Part 13, talking about those rare fellows who just see no division between these two worlds, think about those great geniuses you admire, famous or not. He wrote about the dreamers:
“They are the architects of greatness, their vision lies within their souls, they peer beyond the veils and mists of doubt and pierce the walls of unborn Time. The belted wheel, the trail of steel, the churning screw, are shuttles in the loom on which they weave their magic tapestries. Makers of Empire, they have fought for bigger things than crowns and higher seats than thrones. Your homes are set upon the land a dreamer found. The pictures on its walls are visions from a dreamer’s soul. They are the chose few — the blazers of the way. Walls crumble and Empires fall, the tidal wave sweeps from the sea and tears a fortress from its rocks. The rotting nations drop off from Time’s bough, and only things the dreamer’s make live on.”
Really, when we stop and think about it, and we see it, is almost like the lights turn on. –Really. We cannot see the difference from that point on, our lives take a different, richer taste. The device through which I’m recording this right now was dreamt by a dreamer, the one you’re using right now was also dreamt by a dreamer, the clothes we are wearing, the building we are in, the furniture we have…
Everything we see was first dreamt upon and then it came to existence. And yes, even fractals, folks. Remember those from 2 videos ago? It is said that Gaston Julia, the early twentieth century mathematician who inspired the work of Benoit Mandelbrot at IBM back in the seventies, used to dream about those equations, and if you check out his drawings, we was pretty spot on. It only took like 50 years for men to develop enough computing power to explain the true depth of what Julia was dreaming. Ok, I’m not saying Julia nor Mandelbrot “invented” fractals, but they really came upon a human interpretation in relation to a law in Nature, you know? They were able to relate and translate for the human mind, what that other “Mind” is dreaming about when it indeed creates those realities, do you follow me?
People criticise and try to bring down those with big, hairy, audacious dreams. It is really sad because most of the time they win by injecting their fear based questions and beliefs. Much like adding drops of ink make a glass of water undrinkable. But you want to know the worst part? Even though they think they won, they’re so spiritually confused that they don’t see how terribly bad they failed, and they let their own dreams die in the process. Having dreams of another human being doing bad is the symptom of the spiritual confusion in the first place, and those who know about the Law of Karma and specially the Law of Forgiveness know that hatred and rage are only self-imposed blocks on their way to the life of their dreams.
Another quote by David Ogilvy –one of the actual Madison Advertising guys who inspired the sitcom MAD Men– comes to mind and makes me dream of the possibilities.
“Don’t punt. Aim it out of the ballpark. Compete with the immortals!”
After a close observation, the trained eye simply can’t deny the reality that is biting our nose: the world of the dreams is what we see. It’s all around us.
I invite you wake up to the world of your dreams this next year, amigos! What could happen?
Please be bold and share with the world one of your dreams for this next year.
Thanks a lot for your time in watching this video and following my ramblings on the bike. Hope you got some value from all of this and don’t forget to check out next week! I, mean, next year!
And, here’s to all the dreamers out there.
