dreaming & life

If we don’t dream, we are not living!

Take five minutes to savour this delightful and inspiring video clip of Pope Francis speaking earlier today about the importance of dreaming as a method for more abundant and loving living. He also makes a suggestion for a bed-time examen of consciousness: did I dream today?

  1. Thank you, Pope Francis. To dream with the gentleness of love, is to let go of my own agenda, and allow myself to be steered by God. I think we all know how this works. At night, my examen of conscience is about gratitude for everything that has happened in the day, especially the challenges, the times when I have messed up, for these bring two gifts: they are my teachers, and they bring me to greater awareness of my dependency on God. I believe this kind of dreaming, belongs to what Jesus called “The Kingdom of Heaven within.”
