Choosing our dream

When it comes time for us to choose between a cherished dream and a lousy current drudgery, we often choose to ignore the dream and blame our continued misery on God. We act like it’s God’s fault we didn’t go to Europe, take that painting class, go on that photo shoot. In truth, we–not God– have decided not to go. We have tried to be “sensible”– as though we have any proof at all that God is sensible–rather than see if the Universe might not have supported some healthy extravagance.

If you are still dealing with a God consciousness that has remained unexamined since childhood, you are probably dealing with a toxic God. What would a non-toxic God think of your creative goals? Might such a God really exist? If so, would money, or your job, or your lover remain your higher power?

What dream can you choose today?
