“Manifesting your dreams begins with the difficult task of discovering what they truly are. As children, we follow the footsteps of our parents and teachers. Most of us accept their guidance and wisdom about what classes to take in school. They influence our choice of hobbies, sports, and clubs that fill up our free time. As we get older we often choose our careers and our mates based on ideals established by our elders. But at what point do we stop listening to these external voices and tune in to our inner guides? When do we decide that perhaps the path we’re on is not really our own? Could this be the reason we feel something is missing in our lives?
These are the kinds of questions we fear most because they require us to second-guess what we’ve been taught. Have you ever questioned your belief in God? For some, to question holy doctrine is a mortal sin. But if we don’t challenge our most basic beliefs we won’t grow as spiritual beings. Our lives will simply run along lines established by our parents, and we’ll never go beyond those boundaries that were set when we were kids.”
