What an interesting quote. Do you think this is true? What are your dreams – you know, those “crazy” ideas you have for living the life you desire – fulfilling your deepest wishes. Do you feel that they are much too hard to attain, or have you slowly but surely been working on them all along? I remember reading the story of a man who had always wanted to obtain a higher education, so he decided upon retirement that he was going to go to college, but couldn’t afford it. His solution was to go anyway and audit the classes (this simply meant that he could do the work, but not receive any credit). His friends gave him a hard time, telling him that he’d be too old when he finished, but his response was that he’d be that age anyway, so what difference would it make. Some ten years later, he was still auditing various courses, doing the course work and passing every class. The college finally gave him an honorary degree for his dedication to learning. Needless to say, he was the same age he would have been anyway, only now he’d gotten the education he’d always wanted. Life is to be lived, after all.
See, if someone really is courageous enough to follow through on their soul’s wishes, they are often able to find a way to fulfill them. The problem, I have found, is finding the courage to follow through. Turn your dreams into actions and fulfill your wishes!
