August 29--Dreams

Don't be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams. 
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

    We can't fix a problem with the consciousness that created it, wisely stated by Einstein. We can become mired in difficulties, battered by problems, focusing on what we don't want, which just brings more of what we don't want. Being led by one's dreams, however, brings the focus on creating what we do want. I have found that when focusing on my dreams, what I choose to create, that problems tend to resolve themselves and fade away.  
    During 2020's pandemic time, I have been fairly successful at focusing on consciously thriving (dream) rather than succumbing to fear, anxiety, and loneliness (problems). I've used the time to do a lot of online learning, developed a painting process I love, expanded my meditation practice, taught MELT and yoga online twice a week (keeping me in shape as well as my students), and cleared a lot of clutter from my home. We have invented safe ways to have fun. I believe the majority of humanity is dreaming of a better world to birth from all this upheaval. 
    In joy, expansion, freedom,
