Becoming a dreamer is huge, and it seems as though when people grow up after childhood they lose much of their creativity and imagination that allows for them to dream. A dreamer is someone who is able to visualize and create dreams while they are awake so that eventually they will be able to act. One thing about this world is that though it is full of those who are able to formulate dreams during times that they are awake, there are only a certain few who are special enough, and bold enough to follow the dreams that are given to them by their hearts. To be a success, you not only have to be able to dream, but you must be willing to go forth towards your dreams as well, never letting any obstacle that life is willing to put in your path stop you from being where you want to be and accomplishing the dreams you have in your heart.

The earth is too full of beauty to not be able to love one thing in it. Even in the loneliest times of our lives we are never truly lonely. Not only do we have God with us at all times, but we have his creations as well. Including the beautiful animals like dogs, cats, horses, and so on, who are able to offer us a level of companionship that sometimes our own peers cant. Of course we also have our peers, including family and friends that may not love us as we would like for them to, but still love us all the same. We must also remember to engage ourselves with other beauties that life has to offer in things like nature and exercise as well. In any given moment of any given day chances are there is at least one thing in your environment that you love, and know that it may be hard to live without, never take these things for granted

In our lives one crucial element of living that we must all embrace is that we must learn to be ourselves no matter how others around us may feel about it. Of course we should treat others with kindness, and we should always try to be a blessing to others, but the only true way to do this is by living and being ourselves without compromise, without apology, and without regret. Accept everything about yourself, and realize that though everyone should have the incentive to continue to grow throughout life, your integrity should never be compromised in doing so, because if in fact it is, it is not growth at all. Don't settle in life for being comfortable as living as someone who you are not, be who you are, and be the best you that you may possibly be, because no one else can and no one else will!

In life though it is very important for us to be able to dream, it is also important to note that the dreams we have will not work unless we are willing to work towards them as well. Without starting an engine and actually going from point to point, having a car is actually pretty useless. This is also true with the dreams we have and what we are able to do with them. We must be willing to not only dream and be imaginative, but we must also be willing to go courageously in the direction of our dreams. We have to be willing to give ourselves a chance to live out the life we conceived we might possibly be able to live in the future. Commit to acting on your dreams, and the more that you are willing to commit, the more near our dreams will become to us.

Arjuna's Conversion:
Dhritarashtra said:
1. O Sanjaya! What indeed did my people and the followers of the Pandavas do after having
assembled in the holy land of Kurukshetra, eager to join battle?
Sanjaya said:
2. Then seeing the army of the Pandavas arrayed in battle order. King Duryodhana for his
part approached the teacher Drona and spoke to him the following words:
3. O Teacher! Behold this great army of the sons of Pandu, arrayed in battle order by your
talented disciple, the son of Drupada.
4. Here (in that army) are many brave bow-men of note who are equal to Bhima and
Arjuna in battle - great car-warriors like Yuyudhana, Virata and Drupada;
5. Dhrishtaketu, Chekitana and the brave king of Kashi; Purujit, Kuntibhoja and Shaibya
the best of men;
6. The powerful Yudhamanyu, the brave Uttamauja, the son of Subhadra, and the sons of
Draupadi - all these are indeed noted car-warriors.

Yoga of Knowledge
Sanjaya said:
1. To him who was thus overcome with pity and whose eyes were full of tears and bore a
bewildered look, Shri Krishna spoke as follows:
The Blessed Lord said:
2. O Arjuna! Whence has this loathsome stupidity come upon you in this crisis? It (this
attitude) is unworthy of a noble personage; it is a bar to heaven and a cause of much
disrepute.
3. O Partha! Yield not to unmanliness! It befits thee not. Abandoning this base faint-
heartedness, rise up, O dreaded hero!
Arjuna said:
4. O Krishna! How can I attack Bhishma and Drona in battle with my arrows? They are,
indeed worthy of worship, O destroyer of foes!
5. It is indeed better to live here in this world on a beggar's fare than to prosper by killing
these venerable teachers. The enjoyment of pleasure and power obtained through the
slaughter of these teachers and elders will surely be bloodstained.

Yoga of Action
Arjuna said:
1. O Janardana, if, according to Thee, discriminative insight is superior to action, why dost
Thou enjoin on me this terrible action (of engagement in war)?
2. By seemingly conflicting words, Thou art confusing my understanding. Speak to me only
about that which will definitely lead to my highest good.
The Blessed Lord said:
3. In times of yore a twofold spiritual path was taught by me, O sinless one - that of
knowledge for Samkhyas (who are pure contemplatives), and that of action for Yogis (who
combine detached work with devotion).
4. By non-performance of action a man does not gain the state of spiritual passivity (or the
state of egoless actionlessness called Naishkarmya). By mere external abandonment
(Samnyasa), he does not attain to perfection.
5. No man can ever remain even for a moment without performing any action. The
impulses of nature deprive him of ... Read more »

Renunciation of Action in Knowledge
The Blessed Lord said:
1. I imparted this immortal Yoga to Vivasvan, Vivasvan to Manu, and Manu to Ikshvaku.
2. O scorcher of foes! This Yoga handed down from teacher to disciple in succession, was
known to the Rajarishis (royal sages). But owing to long lapse of time, it was lost to the
world.
3. You are My devotee and friend - thinking thus, I have today declared to you even that
ancient Yoga. For, it is a noble secret (imparted by a teacher only to a worthy disciple).
Arjuna said:
4. Thy life-time is later, that of Vivasvan was much earlier. How then am I to understand
that Thou didst impart this doctrine to him?
The Blessed Lord said:
5. O Arjuna! You and I have passed through many births; I remember them all, but you do
not, O scorcher of foes!
6. Though birthless and deathless, and the Lord of all beings as well, yet I (the Eternal
Being) ta ... Read more »

Yoga of Renunciation
Arjuna said:
1. O Krishna! Thou praisest in one breath both abandonment of works and communion
through their performance. Now tell me with certainty which of them leads to one's good.
The Blessed Lord said:
2. Both abandonment of works and communion through works lead to liberation. But of
them, communion through work excels abandonment of work.
3. O mighty-armed one! Whoever hates not, nor desires, should be known as one
established in renunciation. Indeed, one who is above such contraries is easily liberated
from bondage.
4. It is only the childish and not the wise that speak of Samkhya (or Knowledge
accompanied by abandonment of work) and Yoga (or communion through detached and
dedicated work) as different. A person well-established in even one of these, attains the
end that is the common goal of both. (That is, in the means they employ, they look
different, but the ... Read more »

Communion Through Meditation
The Blessed Lord said:
1. It is the man who performs his duties without dependence on the fruits that deserves to
be called a Sannyasin (renouncer) and a Yogin, not the one who keeps no fire or avoids
works.
2. O son of Pandu! What is called Sannyasa or renunciation know that to be identical with
Yoga or disciplines of selfless action. For, whoever has not abandoned subtle hankerings
and self-centred objectives, can never become a Yogi, or a practitioner of spiritual
communion through works.
3. For one who desires to ascend the path leading to the heights of spiritual communion
(Yoga), detached work is the means. For one who has ascended it, quiescence is verily the
means.
4. When one ceases to be attached to sense objects and to one's actions, then that one, who
has thus abandoned all subtle hankerings and self-centred objectives, is said to have
ascended the ... Read more »

Communion Through Knowledge
The Blessed Lord said:
1. Hear now, O son of Pritha, how one resigned to Me and absorbed in love of Me, attains
to full knowledge of Me through the practice of spiritual communion.
2. I shall now declare to you in fullness that Knowledge along with Special Knowledge, (its
higher development), by means of which there will remain nothing more for you to
understand.
3. Among thousands of men, there will just be one here or there striving for spiritual
perfection. From among the aspirants so striving, one perchance knows Me in truth.
4. My Nature is divided into eight categories - earth, water, fire, air, sky (ether), mind
(manas), understanding (buddhi), and I-sense (ahamkara).
5. This, O mighty armed, is My lower Nature. Know that, as different from it, is My higher
Nature forming the source of all Jivas and the support of the whole universe.
6. Know that all beings have ... Read more »

Way to Brahman
Arjuna said:
1. O Supreme Lord! What is Brahman (the Absolute)? What is the Spirit (the Adhyatma)?
What is work (Karma)? And what is that which underlies the material manifestations
(Adhibhuta), and what, the divinities (Adhidaiva)?
2. O Slayer of Madhu! Who is the Adhiyajna (the spirit underlying sacrifices) that resides in
this body, and how does he do so? How should a man of a self-restraint meditate on the
Supreme Being at the time of death?
The Blessed Lord said:
3. Brahman is Akshara, the Immutable Being than whom there is none higher. Brahman's
power manifested in every body as the transmigrating self (the Jiva), is the Adhyatma. The
creative act (identified with sacrificial offering), which brings all beings into existence, is
Karma (work).
4. O noble one! The perishable Nature is the material aspect (Adhibhuta). The cosmic soul
is the basis of all divine manifestati ... Read more »

Sovereign Secret
The Blessed Lord said:
1. I shall now declare to you, who are endowed with reverence, that profoundest of all
mystic doctrines and the way to its experience, by which you will be free from the baneful
life of Samsara.
2. It is a sovereign science, and a profound mystery. Supremely sanctifying, demonstrable
by experience, and yielding imperishable results, it is also easy to perform and is in
agreement with the moral law.
3. Men without faith in this sacred doctrine (who continue to look upon the body as the
self) fail to attain Me. They remain caught up in Samsara, the eternally recurring cycle of
births and deaths.
4. All this world is pervaded by Me, the Unmanifested Being. All objects subsist in Me, but
not I in them.
5. And yet objects do not abide in Me! Behold My mysterious Divine Power! Source and
support of all objects, and yet not abiding in (i.e.not limited by) t ... Read more »

Divine Glories
The Blessed Lord said:
1. Hear again, O mighty armed one, My words on the Supreme Truth. Desirous of your
good, I want to declare it to you, who are so beloved of Me.
2. Neither the hosts of gods nor Maharishis (great sages) know my origin, for I am Myself
the origin of all those gods and great sages.
3. He who knows Me as the beginningless, the unborn and the Master of the worlds - he
among mortals becomes undeluded, and he is freed from all sins.
4-5. Intelligence, knowledge, sanity, patience, truth, sense-control, mind-control, pleasure,
pain, birth, death, fear and also fearlessness; non-injury, same-sightednsss, contentment,
austerity, benevolence, fame and obloquy - all these diverse modes of the mind seen in all
beings proceed from Me alone, their ultimate sanctioner.
6. The seven great sages (beginning with Marichi) as also the four earlier ones like Sanaka
and the rest and ... Read more »

The Cosmic Form
Arjuna said:
1. Thy instructions on the grand Mystery, the highest spiritual Truth, imparted to me out
of Thy abounding grace, have dispelled my delusion.
2. O lotus-eyed One! From Thee I have heard at length about the origin and dissolution of
creatures as also about Thy greatness that knows no decay.
3. Thou art, O Lord Supreme, even as what Thou hast declared Thyself to be. (I understand
and accept it.) Yet I now desire to see that form of Thine as the Lord of all.
4. If, O Lord, Thou thinkest me worthy of experiencing that immutable form of Thine, then
deign to reveal the same to me, O Thou Master of all Yoga!
The Blessed Lord said:
5. Behold, O Partha, My manifold forms in their hundreds and thousands - all divine and all
of varied hues and shapes.
6. Behold the Adityas and the Vasus, the Rudras and the Ashvins, and the Maruts likewise -
behold these marvels unseen by ... Read more »
