Dreams can be a powerful motivating force for change within individuals. People continue to transform themselves and their circumstances by turning their day dreams into reality. The practical application of a personal idealism upon ourselves unleashes enormous power of the individual.
Yes, this mighty sword is double edged. We may turn our dreams into reality and reality into our living nightmare. The choice is always our own even as we lack understanding of our motivations and our reasons for speaking, thinking and taking action.
The inward turning of our idealism creates enlightenment and an enlightened human cannot stay contained only within herself. One does not speak of her enlightenment nor profess it to others. Her fully realized self will swell up and out beyond her self containment. Her unspoken radiant being-in-itself will cause others in her orbit to become aware and perhaps take note, maybe even beginning their own inner journey towards the glowing light.
In this unfolding process of the centuries lies the way to redemption for humankind.
