Dreams are a reality …

Dream Together

“Great acts are made up of small deeds.”
Lao Tzu

We were all born for greatness, even though only a few individuals will be recognized by name in history. That does not lessen our contribution, nor does it signify that our participation did not change the course of world events.  Our dreams are ever renewed when we act with compassion and optimism.  And when our voices merge with others, every thing is possible.  John Lennon once said, “A dream you dream alone is only a dream.  A dream you dream together is a reality.”

 “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.”

Robert F. Kennedy

    Learning to do and to give with no thought of return is a key element of creating reality from dreams.
    In response to the question “What do I owe you?” after helping another with changing a tire or cleaning up a mess I’ll say “Put it into the account of mankind.”

      I agree – what we may consider a small, to someone else there is great meaning. I remember the nursing staff’s compassionate care for my father at the end of his life. It was the small things that made the difference.
