Dream the World to come (2)

Dear Todung,

Those who can dream – the dreamers – are the builders. People
working with facts alone, they never achieve anything in life. Even
if they achieve something, they get to some heights, such
achievement, such heights would be very short lived. Temporary!
This is the law of nature, because when you talk about facts, you
talk of time and its limitation. A scientist makes a discovery,
this is a fact. But tomorrow another scientist makes another
discovery, greater than the previous scientist. He will go out of
his way to prove that his predecessor had overlooked some facts and
that his discovery is greater.

This is crazy, this will never come to an end. If Darwin can be
opposed, an Einstein too can be rejected. This is what happens to
people working with facts, the so called scientist. This is where
logic finally leads you.

No, I don’t put any value to facts. Dreams are more important.
Dreams are infinite, endless, and abstract and the heights that
they can take you to would also be infinite, endless and abstract.

Don’t attempt to build a multi-storied skyscraper without a proper
blueprint. Without a blueprint, you can build a thatch roofed
house, yes, but certainly not an Empire State Building.

Dream then, dream you must. Dream the blueprint of your life and
once it is ready, start working towards its realization.

You will find that you don’t have to run after success anymore.
Success comes to you, kisses your feet. And then, only then you
will appreciate what I am saying. I want you to succeed, I want you
to go down in the pages of history as builders. But, builders of
what? Certainly, builders of skyscrapers. If you are satisfied with
building thatch roofed house, then you can do without dreaming.
Then, you need not dream. Then, you are okay as you are.

This world today is in need of a few dreamers. A team of expert
dreamers who can dream the blueprint of the world to come. Others
will join them in giving shape to such a world. These are the
people who work with facts. Not that they are not important, they
are. They are the workers. We cannot do without them either. Yet,
you must remember the architect of such a world-to-come, the
project officer, the leader, must be a Dreamer.
