Time to Wake Up

"Jacob woke up from his dream and said, 'Surely the Divine is in this place, and I wasn't aware of it.'" Genesis 28.16

Dreams seem real when we are having them. Eventually we wake up from our dreams, and no matter how terrifying or ridiculous or sad the dream was, we can always comfort ourselves by remembering that it was just a dream. Now awake, we are free to choose thoughts and make choices that will create the sort of life we deserve and desire.

Some of us have been living a dream...the dream of being disconnected from our divine Source, of being separate from the rest of the Universe, of being fragile, alone, and not good enough. In our dream, someone told us we were bad and in the dream, it seemed real and frightening. But we can wake up from the dream. In the dream, our sacred value may have been hidden or denied, but in Reality, we are the children of God, filled with the spirit of God, part of the creation that God calls very good. It's time to wake up and affirm that the Divine is in this place, in our lives, in our hearts, it is expressing in, through, and as us. We may not have known that Truth in the dream, but once we wake up, we do know and can live in the power and the joy of the divinity that surrounds and fills us.
