Stop Dreaming and Start Digging!
Key Lesson: Waiting for the "right time" to come, when you'll clean up your act and finally make some real changes in yourself, is like spending all your time complaining about the unkempt condition of your neighbor's garden while your own is overrun with weeds!
The Freedom to Change Your Life Experience
Our present experience of life, for its happiness or sorrow, is nothing more or less than what certain unconscious parts of us tell us it is. This means that before we can hope to change our life experience, we must stop trying to re-write the Book of Life and work instead to awaken ourselves from the dreams of the unseen storyteller within us.
We cannot change what life brings to our door until we learn to change the way in which we answer it!
The reason perfect love casts out fear is because any unwanted condition willingly embraced loses its power over us. No one is a captive of what is agreed to, nor does he wish for a time to come when he will be free. Only when we are no longer driven to imagine a freedom apart from what the moment holds for us, will we find that we are free now.
Trying to make yourself feel better by imagining a happier time to come is like hoping to make the pain of being hungry go away by reading a menu.
The best time -- in fact, the only time -- to make a real change in your life is in the moment of seeing the need for it. He or she who hesitates always gets lost in the hundred reasons why tomorrow is a better day to get started!
