Joseph had a dream, where stalks of wheat bowed down to him. Telling his brothers about his nocturnal drama got him in one great big heap of trouble. But we all know— it turned out just fine in the end.
If you give voice to your dream, like Joseph, it’s possible others will be offended. Chances are you’ll get eye rolls, yawns or other facial gestures to let you know— they don’t much care. And then there are the times when you’re taken seriously. You find encouragement to talk about your dreams and ways to make those dreams a reality.
Viola swears that she can see her reality in a dream, before she even lives it. She subscribes to the theory that in order to activate your dreams, it must be seen vividly in all its dimensions.
It’s up to you to hear it, see it, touch it, feel it, and then decide whether or not to own your dream. Dreams can be noble, nonsense or self-serving. Sometimes a dream is nothing more than a fleeting thought. Other times, it is God speaking to you, and you’d best be listening.
Now Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers they hated him even more.
