From the book of the prophet Jeremiah 29, 11:
For I know the plans that I have formed for you, says the Lord, plans of peace and not of calamity, to give you a future and hope.
At some point in our lives, it is not uncommon to see specific desires arise in our hearts. We look at the world and the people around us, and we say to ourselves that we would really like to achieve this or that thing. This is entirely legitimate since dreams propel us and allow us to move forward on the path of life. However, a dream that is not aligned with our current energies can be difficult to achieve… What’s more, a temporal alignment is necessary here: « There is a time for everything, a time for everything under the heavens « , says Qohèleth in the book of Ecclesiastes (3, 1). There is therefore a time allocated to each dream and as soon as this time expires, the dream becomes obsolete. We have moved on, we now live in another dimension with its own realities… and its own dreams. But if we bring back past dreams, will they be in line with our true aspirations of the moment?
Things from the past are, in general, quite heavy attachments to carry around. And if we’re not careful, these things can easily take our energy and exhaust us. Thus, the Lord asks us, to avoid the frustrations of an old dream that is difficult to achieve, to align ourselves with his plans. “The plan of the Lord endures forever, the plans of his heart endure from age to age.”, says King David (Psalm 33, 11). And why ? Because the Eternal is timeless. He is always in the present moment and therefore the plans he formed for us are still relevant today!
Our projects must be in line with the wishes of our biological clock, the Lord tells us. Whatever desires spring from the depths of our heart, they must find their roots in the present moment in order to be synchronized with what we release here and now. This is the condition for increasing the chances of their achievement. Otherwise, where can we find the resources to get there? When our dreams are aligned with God’s will, He always provides us with the resources to make them a reality! But for this we must forget our old dreams. We must meditate to learn to detect the vibrations of our heart.
