Ken Donaldson Introduces: The Dream

The Dream

A man lay on his bed at the end of his life waiting to die.
His dream came to pay his last respects, and bid farewell
to the man who had never used him.

As he entered the room he looked down in shame.
“Why did you not realize me?” Dream asked.
“Because I was afraid,” the man said.
“Afraid of what,” said Dream.
I was afraid I would fail.

“But haven’t you failed by not attempting to use me?” Dream asked.
“Yes I did, but I always thought there would be tomorrow…”
“You Fool!” said Dream.
“Did it never occur to you that there was only ever today?
The moment that you are in right now?

“Do you think that now that Death is here that you can put
it off until tomorrow?”
“No,” said the man, a tear gently rolling down his cheek.

Dream was softer now, because he knew that there were
two types of pain: the pain of discipline and the pain of regret,
and while discipline weighs ounces, regret weighs pounds.

Dream leaned forward to gently wipe away the tear and said,
“You need only have taken the first step and I would have taken
one to meet you,for the only thing that ever separated us was the
belief in your mind that you couldn’t have me.”

Think about it…what are YOU waiting for?!!
