A Plea for Expansion


“Dreams are the Universe’s plea for expansion.”

~ Don Francis

Do you have a dream? Of course, I am talking about something that you wish to bring about in your life – a change that you wish to make in your world. Your dreams, of course, are more than mere tasks. They are more than easy goals that only remain goals because you haven’t gotten around to doing them yet.

The dreams that I am talking about are much bigger than that…the possibility of them is uncertain, and you usually don’t know what to do to make them come about. Sometimes they are clearly thought out, and sometimes you haven’t spent enough time thinking about them yet, so they remain vague, lacking clarity. But no matter how clearly you see them, they are something that you truly want, something that you are passionate about.

Have you ever stopped to think about where that dream comes from? What is it that makes this particular thing, circumstance, relationship, or event so important to you? What makes you desire this above (or in addition to) what is already in your life?

My answer to this comes from my core beliefs about the true nature of our lives.

I truly believe that we are pure positive energy (called many things – Source, God, Higher-self, Higher Consciousness, the Universe, etc.) A part of that energy comes to this physical plain to experience life. Each experience expands the Universe. When we come here, we have made choices about the general types of things that we wish to experience. We choose the circumstances and location of our birth which will best facilitate our experience.

Many people believe that we are on this physical plain to learn how to be like Source, or God, or whatever term you choose for it. I have a different view. I believe that we are Source. I believe that we come here to expand Source, to make it more than it has ever been before.

The way we do this is to experience life. We experience contrast in our lives – good and bad. When we see something that we don’t like, it makes us think about what we do like…what we do want…what we want to change about the world…and voila…a dream is born.

We are not here to become like Source. We are source, and we are the creators of everything in our lives. We are on the leading edge of thought. We expand the Universe through our thoughts, our feelings, and our actions.

It is through the pursuit of our dreams that we travel the journey which allows the expansion of the Universe.

The Universe (and thus ourselves) wishes to expand…our dreams are the Universes Plea for expansion. It is through the pursuit of our dreams that we travel the journey which allows the expansion of the Universe. Even if we are pursuing the same dream as somebody else, we are still expanding the Universe because our experience will be unique.

I encourage you to answer that plea for expansion. Allow the dreams to form, no matter how “impossible” they might feel to you, no matter the size or how important you feel it is to the rest of the world. There are no small dreams. What you might think of as small may have a ripple effect through all of space and time, creating vast expansion. All dreams are worthwhile pursuing.

Get involved! Leave a comment and let the rest of our community know what dreams are important to you. You might end up inspiring somebody. You might end up collaborating with other members to bring something about that none of us can even imagine at this point in time. One thing is certain, you have nothing to lose. You should also join in the discussion on the forums. A good place to start would be in the discussion “What are your dreams?”
