We all have dreams.
Our dreams can contain simple or magnificent places,
things, people and occasions.

And over time, our dreams can change.
But, it’s important that we dream,
because dreams can come true.

What if one day
you woke up to discover
you were everything
you could have ever dreamed to be?

Today I woke up!!!
Today
I woke up
and
I was everything
I wanted
to be.

I forgave
myself
of everything
that had ever
made me
feel ashamed.

I loved
everyone
everywhere . . .
even
those who hurt me.

I sent love
to those
who have lost their way.

I wasn’t afraid…
of anything
anymore.

I realized…

I was endowed with
all the power
of the Universe,

to think…
to feel…

and create,
and to love
all that I have created.

I reveled…
in the realization
that this…

is the sum total
of all I have intended
for myself to date.

I realized…
that right NOW
is the only moment
there ever really is,
was, or will be.

I knew…
that all my past,

-except what was good-
was gone.

I made a pact with myself
never to forget…

to hold this feeling
as if it were a little child…
for indeed,
it was.

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life,
the very Life of Life.

In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;

But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

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