The Power of Dreaming...
Dreams show us what once was, what undeniably is, and what could be. They show us what us what is possible and give us glimpses at what is thought to be impossible. And that's a scary thing. While there's the potential for greatness and of the most heartbreakingly beautiful things, there is also the possibility of horrors and atrocities. And that's where dreaming can be a dangerous power. For dreams can turn into nightmares and can crush the spirit and warp the heart. They can poison and seduce. They can isolate and possess. One can lose themselves in dreams and fly free without tether.
All powers, great and small, come with a price. And the potential for dreaming darkly is one of them.
But what can be gained by this gift, this talent, this special thing that to so many seems inconsequential or frivolous... is so much more. Sure, it might not be easy. It can be downright terrifying, but the rewards of opening up to the power of dreaming are far richer and more abundant than if one tries to close themselves off from this active form of imagination and creativity.
