“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.  Who looks outside, dreams.  Who looks inside, awakens.”

— Carl Gustav Jung

As another Monday stares us in the face, I am once again elated by the possibilities that hang in the air.  There is so much potential in the beginning of another week — so many opportunities for growth and fulfillment and realizing dreams.  Who looks outside dreams.  Dreaming is a good thing, because our dreams visualize the change we might want to bring to our world.  Who looks inside awakens.  It is in looking within that we find our courage, our passion, and our capability to effectively bring change and fulfillment to our world.

Dreams are good preparation.  They help us to find direction and shape our intentions; but only when we awaken are we able to make our dreams come true.  When your alarm goes off this Monday morning, resist the urge to hit the snooze button.  Ask yourself what dreams you have for the coming week, and then look within.  Find the dreamer who sleeps inside you and call her to consciousness.  Awaken the one who dreams your dreams.  Until your dreams meet reality, they will exist only for you.  In awakening, you can become the change you would like to see in  your world.
