I have a dream…

I have a dream of a world without boundaries, without money, without leaders… I have a dream of a world where we are all allowed to pursue our talents, our passions, cultivate what we are truly good at and where every talent receives its due respect. Where someone who is good at building houses is treated with reverence because without them we would have no roof over our heads, where someone who is good at making clothes is held in highest regard because without them we would all freeze to death, where someone who is empathic and insightful is treated with admiration because without them we would have no one to help us solve crisis and sort out problems, where someone who farms the land is considered to be the most important person of all because they feed us.

I have a dream of a world where you grow, not where you are planted, but where you choose to grow based on your own needs. Where you can settle down, build a home where you know you will truly bloom. Where a farmer is understood to have a bigger piece of land to farm our food, where a doctor is welcomed to a plot in the town because we all know they need to be close to their patients, where an artist is encouraged to build a house on a cliff overlooking the sea to soak up the inspiration pouring in from the ocean. Where we take no more than we need. And happily let other people do the same.

I have a dream of a world where pursuing your talent is considered to be a gift and practicing it a chance to hone in on your skill and evolve your craft, where making a garment, treating a patient, building a house for someone, giving someone council, telling a story, playing music, fixing a tool, planting a tree, is a way to do what you love the most, a gift to yourself, not something you do to make money and accumulate wealth and building status.

I have a dream of a world where kindness, empathy, creativity, exploration, generosity and spirit are the only leaders we need to guide us, and finding a way to discover this leadership within ourselves the only road to morality we need to walk.

Am I dreamer? Yes. Do people laugh and me and call me naΓ―ve when I talk like this. Yes. Do I believe it is one day possible? Absolutely! And today, tomorrow and the day after that I am going to do my best to live as though this dream was already reality. Believing in it bravely and audaciously.

  1. I used to think like this in my teenage years! Since retiring from work 6 years ago, I’m beginning to dream again. Lovely to meet you here. Ashley πŸ’πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

  3. This is my dream too and you expressed it so well Trini. I guess we ought to keep dreaming and start making it real too, even at our own level. Because one drop added to another and another, this is what can change the world.
    And it’s not naive but a true blessing to me. ❀️❀️

  4. The one’s that rule us guide us by fear, be it based on greed, lack of something or even good old ego. They are the least informed of wisdom and so create from that place and attract the same. All we need is those wiser heads who have gone beyond their fears and can see and feel the empathy from it and would guide us from that place within them. They too would create from where they are and attract accordingly.
    The first are angry in themselves and don’t know it, and project that way of being onto all around them. Those around them don’t want to be hurt so distance ourselves in which they take as acceptance as there is no resistance to what they do.
    The second are quiet because they have faced and understood their fear and they project this out into the world. These people attract many who wish to be as them so learn from who they are and are quite accepting in anything that is asked of them, to the point that those around them offer help willingly simply because that acceptance of them is trust, the building block of the love we have always searched for.
    This world based on the first system can only, eventually, collapse as they all do. It is like our lives, we go through that pain and anger in many things until we understand the wisdom in our journey. I think this system too is that painful path until we reach what you spoke of Trini, a system built on that beauty we have found within by experiencing the other and knowing where our hearts want to be so that when it arrives we will gladly embrace it and set ourselves free πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

    • Oh, my apologies kind lady. That is not a dream but a heart reaching out to create that truth it holds within. And the more it touches the more it will become a reality. Beautifully written, passed on and seeded in another. Thank you for sharing a hope in us all ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

    • Thank you, Mark, for sharing your wisdom here. I hope you are right, that a world built on empathy will one day naturally emerge. We just have to keep hoping and living by example audaciously and bravely!

      • Well said dear lady, and it will be because hope and trust have great power behind them…love. The other is just blocking what is naturally there…always πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  5. Believe in your dreams and accept them as reality manifesting. I can really sense the passion and confidence in your words (dreams). Have an inspiring day, Trini! πŸ’«

  6. Such a nice thought ,,, still its possible if not whole world then in your own world, you can start respecting farmers, cloth makers,, rather than who sell them to earn profit,, you can make a start,,πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

  7. I like your dream, Trini. Coincidentally, I was just talking with my spouse over dinner and pondered something similar. The economic and social disparity in this world is insane. Keep dreaming! ❀
