What if everything I am is a culmination of the hopes, fears, dreams, wishes, nightmares, success, and failure of everyone who came before me?
If I can believe that, then how many of my desires, aspirations, hopes, wishes are mine or someone who came before me? How many of my fears, worries, limitations, and so forth are mine or someone who came before me?
What if I am living a wish or a dream of a grandmother or aunt or someone I’ve never known? What if I am not only living my own dream come true but someone before me?
If I can believe that, then whose dream is it? Whose nightmare? Whose pain? Whose fear? Whose anxiety?
What if I am the seed of those to come? What if they are the culmination of me and all who came before me?
If I can believe that, then is my purpose to dream the dreams I want my grandchildren to live? Is it to face the nightmares and fears so they do not have to?
Or, most importantly: Am I to live my life so fully, so completely, that they don’t need to live my dreams? Is my purpose to choose my life so that they and all those around me, are free to choose theirs?
The one who asks questions, plants seeds that grow trees of possibility.
No one has ever found a new flower by growing the same trees.
The way to learn something new is to question.
The way to ignorance is to know.
How do you know what you do not know?
Those who know the most often ask the fewest questions
Those who ask few questions have no seeds and grow weeds of impossibility.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Don’t be shy with the comments ❤️
Inspired by this:
“The So-called ‘Black Sheep’ of the family are, in fact, seekers of liberation roads for the family tree. Those members of the tree who do not adapt to the rules or traditions of the family system, those who were constantly seeking to revolutionize beliefs, going in contrast to roads marked by family traditions, those criticized, tried and even rejected, those, by General, they are called to release the tree of repetitive stories that frustrate entire generations.
The ‘Black Sheep’, those who do not adapt, those who scream rebel, repair, detoxify and create a new and blooming branch… countless unfulfilled desires, unfulfilled dreams, frustrated talents of our ancestors manifest themselves in their rebellion looking to take place .
The family tree, by inertia, will want to continue to maintain the castrating and toxic course of its trunk, which makes its task difficult and conflicting… that no one makes you doubt, take care of your ‘rarity’ as the most precious flower of Your Tree.
You are the dream of all your ancestors”
