Here is an important word. It’s about being present, now.
Life becomes even richer when there s also a there, usually followed by a there to there to … .
Here is now. There is about journeying into the unfamiliar, the new, the future.
Because we can.
Because we can dream in the daytime as well as at night. Some feel this to be a curse: please leave them be, forget the becoming.
Hugh Macleod captures the urgency inhabiting our ability to dream.
‘Thought leadership should be about taking what you know and using it to help people around you. To innovate. To make your world a more meaningful place.’*
This thought or dream or hope is where it all begins:
‘Creating the future does not begin with a plan. It begins with a dream. And when someone acts on a dream, it creates a spark.’**
Cometh the spark, cometh the fire.
No-one dreams or hopes for what they already have. It’s about the future, the journey from there to there.
I’m hopeless for remembering nighttime dreams. And those I remember, I don’t pay much attention to. I don’t know why. Perhaps because they’re about my brain thinking about and sifting the past, but my daytime dreams are about the future.
To be human is to find me here and to find me there.
