Why Not Take Heart in a New Day? The Hopes and Dreams

Jul 7, 2008
How many people awaken in the morning hoping to be renewed--only to unhappily discover that instead--it is their suffering and despair that has been renewed? They think "My God--another day without hope--a day of drudgery--a day without any pleasure or satisfaction." Will anything ever make a positive difference in my life?

If you are one of those unfortunate souls my heart goes out to you. However, did you know it doesn't have to be that way? It is possible for you to create a world--a world that is vastly different from the one you're currently suffering through.

Enya sings the following verse from the song "Once You Had Gold."

"What is the dark shadow around you,
Why not take heart in the new day?
Ever and always. Always and ever.
No-one can promise a dream for you.
Time gave both darkness and dreams to you."

Just the beauty of the song is enough to unleash a person's most sublime feelings and emotions. The wisdom is timeless.

The Dark Shadow

Many people live their lives with the dark shadow as their constant companion. They are surrounded by the darkness that has replaced the brilliant light they may have once shined forth. The gloom and despair generated by the dark shadow envelops their whole being.

Has the dark shadow become your constant companion? You are no doubt suffering much pain and torment--if the morning sun that rises so gloriously in the east doesn't dispel the dark grey of your existence.

Have you asked yourself why it has to be this way? Or are you too depressed to think about it? Maybe the pain from self-analysis or introspection outweighs any benefits you might gain. At least that's what you believe. And what you believe is a self-created delusion. Underneath all your pain and suffering is a beautiful person--an enlightened soul who would love to soar the heights of existence with the eagles and sing songs of inspiration with the angels.

If you are involved with a person who feels this way--it is frustrating because you know if they would only open their heart, mind and soul, they would begin seeing through the illusions that control their life--and begin releasing the blocks and obstacles to the joy and happiness they so desperately need..

Taking Heart In A New Day

If you can't take heart in a new day--you can't hope for a day of joy, pleasure and ecstasy. Without heart there is no hope--no chance for feelings of fulfillment that are the result of a successful day.

When the alarm goes off in the morning do you automatically wish you could return to your slumbers and escape the stark reality of your existence--of your life? Or do you think about your mission in life and all the steps you can take that move you closer to your ultimate goals and desires? Do you joyously anticipate some of the pleasures you will indulge in today? Do you realize that even the little things in life are experiences you can delight in?

It's possible to regain your power or to rediscover the power you thought was lost forever. You may believe others possess all the available power--since they seem so adept at using it against you. What an illusion. The power you need to transform your life into your dreams, desires and fantasies is within you. You own it. Yeah, it's likely that you extinguished its fire--but it is also possible for you to re-ignite it. And how do you do that? You take heart in a new day. There are many effective methods to help you take heart in every new day.

Creating Your Own Dream

Enya is correct. No-one can promise a dream for you. You must create your own dream. You know what your fantasies, goals and desires are. It should be obvious that it is up to you to manifest them. If you are waiting for a knight in shining armor or the manna from heaven to fall in your lap you will be sorely disappointed. Heck--most people have enough difficulty creating and manifesting their own dreams. They certainly aren't concerned about yours--unless, of course, yours and theirs are intertwined

You can create the life you desire. You can do it. Here are several immediate steps you can take.

1. As soon as you awaken in the morning force yourself to smile and begin stretching your arms and legs. Feel the power your body possesses.

2. Meditate at least 24 minutes every morning. This is one minute for every hour of the day.

3. Begin an exercise program. Take up Yoga. Do whatever helps you feel better.

4. Get off the television, junk food cycle. You know that they go together to form a deadly combination that destroys--destroys your fantasies, dream and desires. Read books that stimulate your mind and spirit. Eat healthy foods. Your body needs the correct combination of fats, carbs and proteins.

Yes, tomorrow is a new day. And tomorrow will be today--a day of hope--and maybe a day of _________________________________. You fill in the blank. You decide.

Take heart in a new day--and the day may very well return the favor and supply you with your heart's desires.
