Yesterday, I stumbled on this video from Celine Dion duet with Elvis Presley. While I was amazed by the technological performance of this improbable duet, the lyrics of this song suddenly grabbed my attention and reminded me how fragile we are regarding our ability to believe in our dreams and use the beautiful and strong emotions, they procure to us.
Doubts or hopes, light and dark, joy and pain —All these mixed colors and feelings seem to assault our minds and souls as if life was testing the foundations of our dreams.
If you are subject to this continual battle deep inside of you, take courage; you received the divine ability to dream and author the pages of your life, whatever your questions, doubts or fears.
As this song says:
“…But as long as a man as the strength to dream, he can redeem his soul and fly…”
If you have the ability to dream you have the power to achieve your dreams. Yes, you can fly!
A dream, as improbable as it may seem, eventually becomes a reality if it is fueled by the strong and positive feelings generated by the anticipation of its achievement.
Don’t ask yourself “why can’t my dream come true?” however:
If you can positively answer these questions with determination, then you can sing, write or ask with power:
“And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true……Right now”
And your dream will inevitably come true.
