We live life with hopes and dreams at a certain stage we are told that this is not how the world works. That you'd have to have a job you hate, buy a huge house you don't need, but sh*t to impress people that aren't even an important part of your life, then when it's finally over you look back and wonder -

Where did you go wrong?
Where did you stop dreaming and aspiring to become who you wanted to be?
Why did you allow someone else to dictate your life?
etc.

Then in the middle somewhere like your parents or any other killer lurking in the shadows, you will teach your kids the same lesson and the cycle will continue. The cycle that it is wrong to really dream big, that you should not try and leave the pack of society, that what you believe and want to do is crazy.

Many people say inspiring things and those that listen nod away in agreement. However, How many truly make the realization and take the U-Turn?

Me, personally I always wanted to write, to talk, to share, to tickle your brain and get that box of atoms you call your brain and give it a shake! And, What? I'm finally living my dream, I write fun articles for small businesses, I'm planing on launching a website(s) and I'm going to travel the world while doing a travel blog. Some of you will say where will the money come from? This is going to sound silly! But, I really understand now that when you open the first door and take the first step, the Universe, God, It, Manifestation etc really does provide. I can't explain it! It's as simple as that!

So, I want to ask you:
What was your dream?
Who was your killer?
Why did you allow them or it to kill it?
Why did you give up so easily?

And remember! I won't take - "Life" as the answer! We've had people with their last dollar not give up and become millionaires!

So are you going to be a Dreamer or be a Killer just like all those before you?

Follow your dreams and don't sell your souls

I think a lot of Obama's dreamers have turned out to be killers.
Yeah god forbid one thread doesn't get turned political.

Never underestimate the fear of failure. Way too many people would prefer not to try something "big" than to try it, fail at it, and be called a failure, a loser, or the such.

And that same fear of failure extends to their loved ones, who they'd rather be "safe" than try something they may fail at.

What if you had already ...
1) seen your entire mortal life in an ink bowl vision
2) confronted and destroyed demons in dreams
3) the killer of your dreams had infact made you so paranoid that not even Lucifer could come up with a cunning plan to outwit a psycotic, paranoid, cynical daemon ?

As mentioned by eNumbra what if the mortal life span on this world was simply training to become a defender of life and killer of all chaos demons ?

Spot on!

I don't believe that trying and failing is failure. The only failure in this world is to stay with the herd, pick a "team" and swallow their BS, hook, line and sinker.

Everything else is just steps towards learning, and growing in a positive direction.

I simply treat each "failure" as a lesson. So I try to figure out why I didn't succeed, stand back up, and keep moving forward.

I love your post, just I have one remark here. Are you 100% sure that this is your dream, not theirs?

This is the best attitude towards life and to have understanding and compassion towards everyone, while still being on guard and protecting loved ones.

They (threads) are all infected by the insidious virus "We are Frightened by both Candidates if elected" (should have run on same ticket) let others fill out a less frightening alternative (Libertarians).

I thought failure was a baseline, normal (to be expected).

Also since I've become what others would consider more awake, I realized that other people seem to notice it and react aggressively or do something negative. It's almost as if they are trying to reel you back into the so called herd, seems people that remove the doubt, the fear of failure, stray from the herd are almost like a threat to the others.

NOPE, I am an awake warrior addicted to the fight, it's only PERCEPTION that you are projecting.
I KNOW my ferocity has an effect, its a tool, as is wit.
If they are aggressive it means THEY DON'T AGREE or they don't like you.
FEW people outside of your family maybe a ....COMMUNE of some type give that much of a damn about other people enough to want others to be like them as the sole objective.
I don't want ANYONE to even TRY to be like me...it 's WAY too hard.
I'm not telling you what to do here I'm arguing...don't read into it...you're JUST that wrong.

First, I really enjoyed your thoughts. Thanks for posting this.

I think 'reality' is the 'dream' killer in many if not most cases.

Someone who wants to be an artist but lacks the talent needed for their work to sell. Can't pay the rent, can't feed themselves, have to be dependent on the fruits of others labor to survive; dream killed.

I suppose we likely all had dreams in our youth that were irrational and not achievable, while still being able to do our share in this world and be independent. We all need the wisdom of more experienced people in our youth to guide us and I think using the word killer may be a bit much and unfair to people giving good advice.

For a parent to be concerned if their child is headed down a path, due to a 'dream' that would likely result in a life completely dependent on others supporting them, is in fact good parenting and an expression of love.

I think it's sad that is a reality, but it is what it is.

As long as a person can pursue their dreams, support their own needs and not become a burden on others, I'd say go for it.

For most I'd think pursuing a dream in a reasonable fashion, would include first putting themselves into a position they can go for it without reliance on others. Dreamers need to learn to do something else that will support them plus a little to set aside for the dream. Like all good things, it requires a good solid foundation for dreams to succeed.

Or maybe people who think they are awake come off as assholish.
