Dream the Impossible Dream

By Saleem Rana

To think of riches, when one is in the condition of poverty or lack, requires sustained and concentrated thought; but he who practices this disciplined thinking inevitably becomes rich, and he can have whatever he wants.~Joseph Murphy

How do you seize courage when your whole world is collapsing around you?

You do it by picturing the opposite.

You ignore what is before you and you focus on what is within you.

When you create a dream, you must nourish it. This nourishing has to happen in good times and in bad times.

Rather than suspend your belief, suspend the value you place on what you see before you. If for example, you dream of making money in your own business but all you see around you is the harassment and poverty of your circumstances, choose to nourish the inner and take no value from the outer.

What appears around you as lack is but the outcome of your past thoughts. Your current thoughts of belief in plenty are the ground on which you will form the architecture of your abundance. The emotions that you invest in your dreams are the rain that nourishes the seeds of your desires.

It takes a strong will to think in a way that is contrary to sensible thought. Yet the reasonable person makes no progress, settling always for the obvious. Progress and the future of the world depend on the unreasonable one, who believes visions over actuality.

The dreamers of the day are dangerous, for they bring their vision into creation.

How often we rob ourselves of our dreams, ransacking them like bandits, savagely denuding ourselves of our own power.

When Martin Luther King raised his voice against the oppression of his race, he did not see what was before him but what was within him. His dream was so vivid, so powerful, so convincing that others shared it with him. It became such a force in the world that even his death could not stop that dream of equality from taking shape.

Similarly, when Nelson Mandela dreamed of a better world for his race and for his country, neither imprisonment, humiliation, and prolonged exile could staunch the flow of his vision. Today because he held the dream, sharing it with other freedom fighters, the impossible happened and apartheid collapsed in South Africa.

When the British Empire seemed the only great power in the world, a puny, skinny Indian man dared to dream a different dream. While his eyes saw the stranglehold of his native land by a power that embraced the world, Mahatma Ghandi dared dream

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
