do you want to wake up?

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” (Carl Jung)

I’ve always found refuge in calling myself a dreamer–it takes me places and lights up my eyes, instantly. And other self-hailed dreamers also make for easy (sometimes lasting), instant friends…

Last year, I saw an RCBC billboard that said “Dreams should have a deadline” (read here). Was very moving for me, because it necessarily pushed and snapped me out of the floating comfort zone that was “looking outside”.

When we go inside ourselves and ask the questions that need to be asked, what happens? And what do we lose when we don’t?

Let’s wake up… it’s time..
