How Dreams Become Reality

How Dreams Become Reality

Nonlocal mind is pure soul or spirit, known as universal consciousness. Operating outside the boundaries or normal space and time, it is the great organizing and unifying force of the universe, infinite in scope and duration.

It requires no attention, no energy, no approval; it is whole unto itself, and therefore attracts love and acceptance. It is imminently creative, the source from which all creation flows. It allows us to imagine beyond the boundaries of what local mind sees as “possible,” to think “outside the box,” and to believe in miracles.

The creative leaps taken by nonlocal mind have been supported by science. Gaps in the fossil record during evolution suggest creative leaps of imagination in nature itself, a hypothesis known as punctuated equilibrium.

For example, there are ancient fossils of amphibians, and ancient fossils of birds, but there is no fossil record of a connecting creature between amphibians and birds. That suggests a quantum leap of imagination, where amphibians wanted to learn how to fly, and birds manifested as a result of that intent.

Scientists believe primates evolved into humans, but there is no fossil record of the phase in between, the “missing link.” First there were only primates, and then suddenly human beings appeared. In between? Nothing.

These leaps of imagination are constantly evolving into what we see as the universe. In our lifetime, we’ve seen the development of television, the Internet, e-mail, nuclear technology, and space exploration. Imagination leads wherever we go. And although imagination is a property of the universal consciousness, it gets conditioned through all these localized expressions.

Human beings have the ability to go beyond that. They have the ability, through the local mind, the local “I,” to make choices through intention. And the nonlocal mind, the nonlocal “I,” takes care of the details synchronistically to fulfill the intention. That is how dreams become reality.

Deepak, you need touch ground once in a while.

Amphibians evolved into dinosaurs and reptiles, and dinosaurs evolved ino birds. Birds today are the only remaining descendants of Dinosaurs.

Thank you. I suppose if you are rich and materialistic you could make your "dream" of a fancy car and house come true with money. I am neither rich nor materialistic so I have intentions and connect to the Cosmic intelligence for help.

Even if not all our dreams come true, it is still worth keep on dreaming and dreaming...
