When it all stands still and you come to the end of the line you have the opportunity to reflect. At this point you have the privilege of 20/20 vision. You can look back and realise that life is a process of becoming and that your dreams guide you to becoming you. It is not necessarily at the end of it all, but it can be at the end of the current part of your journey. It is the time between times.
Dreams are the guideposts to your true self. It is not about achieving your dreams, but about becoming the most beautiful version of yourself. As an acorn grows to become an Oak tree you have inside you the same beauty that desires to grow into fullness.
Unfortunately so many people become distracted with having rather than being. In order to understand that things make being alive possible you have to let go of the importance of stuff. You learn it again and again at different levels of growth in life. Let go and be. So simple; so difficult.
