3 January 2020 | Dream and Desire are different. The difference between these two often-used-interchangeably concepts is so critical.
Dream is often happened while a person is sleeping. Most of dreams are forgotten after the person wakes up. And since it is a dream, the person usually, if not always, believes what happened in the dream never happen (again) in real life. ‘A dream becomes true’ is magic. Therefore, a dream does not really motivate the person in action although the dream should help the person think positively.
Desire is what wakes the person up. Desire pushes the person into moving onward. A desire is not only happened while sleeping. The desire is always in the mind of the person. Wait..
Why is desire something important? It is because a desire is the beginning of a long journey to success in our lives – our real lives.
Buddhism and Judaism both teach that thinking about doing good things then good things come to you. Napoleon Hill asks you to define first your desire then let the desire leads your way. Colonel Bradford tells you if you want to be young then start to think and believe that you are young. What do they say? They all mention the universal law of attraction.
The Law of Attraction is the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person’s life. The belief is based on the ideas that people and their thoughts are made from “pure energy”, and that a process of like energy attracting like energy exists through which a person can improve their health, wealth, and personal relationships.
The stronger the desire the more attractive it is. How to measure the strength of a desire? The strength of a desire is measured by the impact of its fulfilment. The more people gain benefits from its fulfilment the stronger the desire is. Sir Moses Montefiore – who calculated how much his wealth by how much he gave to charity – agrees with this measurement.
Positive thinking increases the strength of desires. Meanwhile negative thinking decreases the strength of desire. Fortunately, the “Clean Methodology” of Ho’oponopono offers an effective and easy-to-practice solution of saying “I thank you. I love you. I am sorry. Please forgive me.”
