You see, action has a totally different frequency than wishes, dreams and all other though processes. Action is raw, primal, effective. It requires for the energy to be expressed into the psychical world. Without excuses, without intermediaries, without delay.
So we continue to play down our dreams, we start convincing ourselves that our dreams are not really that important, that we should focus on more realistic or achievable ones. This is also good for our sense of self-worth. It is a protection mechanism that protects or fragile Ego from being confronted with disappointment. We must also understand that this brings us nothing, except for the same old circumstances that we are claiming that we want to escape. But do we? Do we really ?
