Are you a dreamer? Do you frequently find yourself gazing off into the distance getting lost in a world of "What If"?
Back to work. You can't daydream forever.
But what if you could? What if you had the freedom to daydream when you felt like daydreaming? To work when you felt like working?
Humans aren't supposed to spend their days in office buildings. We're not supposed to spend large amounts of time moving ourselves from one place to another in giant hunks of metal while our bodies slowly deteriorate and our relationships slowly fade.
We're not supposed to spend gargantuan amounts of time plopped down in front of electronic devices moving our fingers and eyelids, absorbing radiation, and spending more waking time in the virtual world than in the real one.
We not supposed to arrive at home and focus our attention on a box that has been pre-programmed to brainwash us while simultaneously allowing our bodies to atrophy.
We're not supposed to spend most of our life communicating with our loved ones using a digital representation of their voices. "Raam to the Enterprise, I love you mom!"
Damn it Jim, we're not digital lab rats! We're humans!
We're meant to be free!
We're meant to move. To run. To breathe. We're meant to interact. To communicate. To laugh. To smile. To learn.
We're meant to live in the real world.
We're meant to follow our desires; our passions; our dreams. We're meant to coexist with nature and to nurture a sustainable, symbiotic relationship with it.
We're meant to eat when we're hungry and to sleep when we're tired. We're meant to have fun when we're feeling playful and to daydream when we're feeling dreamy.
We're meant to work like humans, not like ants. We're meant to be more than an address book entry, a Twitter username, or an Avatar on the screen. We're meant to be creative. To explore. To think. We're meant to dream. To have ideas. To create. To be unique.
We're meant to be friendly. To give. To share. We're meant to be kind. To help. To heal. We're meant to care and to love.
We're meant to feel the wind against our skin, smell the earth under our feet, and be inspired by the life and the natural beauty around us.
When was the last time you felt the earth under your bare feet? When did you last have fresh dirt underneath your nails?
Go! Experience the real world. Reconnect with your body. Develop a healthy relationship with Mother Nature. Listen. Breathe. See. Touch. Smell. Taste. Use your senses.
Walk barefoot. Use your legs, if you're lucky enough to have them. Feel the individual muscles move. Use your voice. Move your eyes.
Embrace who you are. Find the courage to be yourself.
If you're a talker, connect. If you're a musician, create. If you're a writer, share. If you're an artist, do art. If you're a builder, build. If you're a healer, heal. If you're a teacher, teach. If you're an explorer, explore. If you're a dreamer, dream.
You're not who society tells you to be. You don't have to be. You shouldn't be! Break free of any self-imposed limitations and experience life to its fullest. Break new ground. Get out of the rut. Explore. Try something new.
If you find yourself daydreaming, then let yourself dream. If you find yourself in a position you don't fully enjoy, or one that holds you back from experiencing life to its fullest, then make those tough decisions and change your life.
If you don't wake up every single day and look forward to what's ahead, then something isn't right. You're not living.
But you can change it!
You already have the freedom inside you. Living free is a conscious decision.
