** Determination's Demise - The Tragedy in Dreams Coming Alive **Sunalie Ratnayake Salem-News.com
[Determination - Dreams – Realities]
(LOS ANGELES) - It’s rather easy to dream a dream, and it may not even be a ‘task’ by any means, to do so.
True enough, that great notions, discoveries, and all significant and worthy entities saw daylight, as inceptions, in the form of dreams in one’s mind. Nothing may have arrived by means of “magic”.
There are abundant dreamers that have dreamt many a dream at ease, yet, void of advent of thy dreams. Regrettably, the same practice may recurrently follow through, until the end of time.
Nevertheless, to make a momentous dream alive in this world, one has to cling onto “determination” with copious guts to never let go of that “dream”, until it materializes into reality.
Through rough rides and hard times, one may abandon their dreams, like leaving one’s ‘possessions’ when leaving this world. Yet, to make a dream alive, one should cling onto it, like clinging onto ‘possessiveness’, as one may do so, even after leaving this world, travelling a concealed excursion.
‘Possessions’ could be left with ease, yet ‘Possessiveness’ is rather inseparable, as it is attached deep in one’s mind.
~ So should be one’s “dreams”, until they are turned into “realities”.
A dream does not become a reality via magic. It cannot be brought into existence via chanting for its emergence.
It takes profuse sacrifices - blood, sweat, tears, agony, anguish, sorrow, dedication, and perhaps even humiliation, in making a ‘DREAM’, a ‘REALITY’.
But, the ‘outcome’ for not giving up on your dream, until it has been turned to a reality, shall remain ‘outstanding’. You shall be rewarded inimitably, even via obscure forces, for that diligence alone.
Hence, do not simply dream the dream, and let that dream submerge in deep slumber, at times of high tide. But walk it into reality with diligence and tolerance, irrespective of hindrances along the way.
And in doing so, be mindful that “determination is omnipotent”.
