A King Is Not Measured by the Heft of His Crown | Heavenletters

God said:

How are you today? Who are you today?

Are you your mood? Are you the dress you wear? Are you the house you live in? Are you your household conveniences? Do they make your life easier? Do you collect objects, or do you divest? What do you really want? Tell Me, what do you really want?

Express what you desire, not as lack or complaint. Rather, describe what you like about your desire. What is it that makes it desirable to you? What does the object of your desires represent to you? What field do your dreams play in? Who said that dreams must be modest and easily attainable?

Dreams are good. Farfetched dreams are as good as any skinny dream. Dreams are good. Farfetched dreams may not be farfetched at all. Who has the right to decree anyone’s dreams?

Nor do you have the right to curb the dreams that enter your heart. Play with the dreams that walk into your heart. Give your dreams a good time. No more being strict with your dreams. No cutting them off. No kicking them out. Beckon dreams to you. May your Life be the stuff that dreams are made of. Give your dreams a chance. Even if your dream is the most unlikely thing in the world, give it a chance.

Of course, do not dream of becoming a scalawag.

If you are a pauper who wants to be a King, you can be a Prince in your Life in the world. A King is not measured by the heft of his crown. Are you or are you not descended from Me? A Prince falls not far from the King.

Dreams ready you. They loosen you. They prepare the way. Who dares to say that dreams must be low key? Your dreams must be what they are. Dream on. May your dreams flow like rivers.

A dream is worthy to exist whether it comes true in front of you or not. Behold your dreams. Spread them before you.

May your dreams be like steeds that race free across hill and dale. Let your dreams be like jewels that sparkle.

All this on the surface of Life in the World is a dream anyway. We can say the more dreamy your dreams are, the more the merrier. Why not? Have fun with your dreams. Feel their fulfillment.

Of course, dreams have a will of their own. Dreams may or may not appear full-grown in front of you. Whether dreams come true in front of you or not, dreams culture you and ready you for greater dreams.

Having dreams is like taking your car out for a ride. Even a ride around the block is a ride. Enjoy it. Enjoy this whole dream of living on Earth. Dreams are the songs you sing. Sing for the joy of it. Sing for Me!

Dreaming is like reading a travel book or looking at the illustrations in a mouth-watering cookbook. You don’t have to travel to Zanzibar. You can have a good time as your mind travels there. You don’t have to bake the marvelous moist cookies pictured in the cookbook in order to enjoy the cookies.

In one sense, what difference does it make whether a dream walks into your life perfectly dressed and shows itself to you and the external world, or a dream does not? Coming true and being true for you are not so far apart. Treasure your dreams. They are made for you to explore. Dreaming takes you somewhere.
