"It is of the nature of desire not to be satisfied,
and most men live only for the gratification of it." ~ Aristotle
"Don't Worry Be Happy." ~ Meher Baba
"And so in the strife of the battle of life,I probably don't need to explain that I have had a soft spot for the underdog. I was an idealistic kid. I have never been in many fights, and no physical ones, so there really isn't a reason that I loved and remembered this poem, yet it appeals to my soul.
It is easy to fight when you're winning;
It is easy to slave and starve and be brave
When the dawn of success is beginning,
But the man who can meet despair and defeat
With a cheer, there's the man of God's choosing;
The man who can fight to Heaven's own height,
Is the man who can fight when he's losing."
What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we've learned as we've moved toward that dream. That's the point at which most people give up. It's the point at which as we say in the language of the desert, one 'dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon."

Ernest Holmes writes: "When we find we are without friends, the thing to do is at once to send our thought out to the whole world; send it full of love and affection. Know that this thought will meet the desires of some other person who is wanting the same thing, and in the same way the two will be drawn together. Think of the whole world as your friend,but you must also be a friend of the whole world." Science of Mind, p.298Do you have enough love in your life? Have you been sending your love out to the entire world?
Ernest Holmes writes:"All is Love yet all is Law. Love is the impelling force and law executes the will of Love. Man (human) is a center of God-consciousness in the great Whole. He cannot deface his real being, but may hinder the Whole from coming into complete expression through his life. Turning to the One with a complete abandonment and in absolute trust, he will find that he is already saved, healed and prospered."." The Science of Mind,p. 323It seems that Ernest agrees that Love is a stimulus; he says love is the impelling force.

Alice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said: 'one can't believe impossible things.'
'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the queen. 'When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'
"To realize your destiny is a person's only obligation. And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."The first question that comes to mind is, what does it mean to have a recurring dream? Metaphysically, it means Subconscious Mind is telling you to pay attention. there is something of value in that dream. Look beyond the literal meaning. Ask yourself what the dream means to you. Only you can determine what it means even though it is often tempting to go to an outside "expert."
"And when you want something, the Universe conspires in helping you achieve it."What are the dreams of your heart? Are you living your divine purpose? There is an alchemist within you; it is ready to transform your life, when you cooperate with it.
