“Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to…”~Miracle on 34th Street
I think that we all struggle with demons. These demons live in our minds and occupy corners and lay in wait for a weak moment and destroy our dreams and ambitions. They are assisted by those who want to share “realities” that are uniquely theirs…not yours and certainly not mine. The demons move from person to person in this way.
If you look at the quote from Miracle on 34th Street, you can see that belief is a strong characteristic and we all have it. We believe that we can or we believe that we can’t. It’s a choice. What do I choose to believe…for my life…for this day….in this moment? Don’t I really control my destiny? Do I relinquish my control to something or someone else?
In my own life, I know now that who I am and what I have become up to this day is my default position when I don’t consciously follow my dreams or my desires simply because someone else has appeared to make sense. At some point, I have to decide, and I mean really decide what I believe. My actions then have to bear that out.
I must be careful to guard these beliefs or my destiny will be lost in The River of Dreams. This really shouldn’t be…uncommon sense…but, it is.
