Dreamers

“Here comes that master dreamer! Come on, let us kill him….

We shall then see what comes of his dreams.”

(Genesis 37: 19-20)

We kill a dreamer when we say to a hopeful person, “Nothing will ever change.” Cynicism is the bitterness of disappointment and the cowardice of giving up. It is a dead faith. We can’t be both cynic and believer, so a choice must be made.

If you kill the dreamer in you and the dreamers around you the wildness of universal reality will be taken from you. Then what will you have but toil and the barren and hopeless landscape of failure? Dreams are not unreality, they are seeds of faith and the hope for a better future. Kill this and you kill what is best in you.
