There’s A Thin Line Between Being A Dreamer And Being A Fool

We all want to be the next Jim Morrisons, Hemmingways and Obamas. We want to live in mansions and flats along a Paris canal. We all want to see the world, change the future and leave our mark. So how come some of us are taken more seriously than others? When did some of our whimsical childhood illusions become bases for contempt and admonition? What separates the dreamer from the fool?

It all boils down to one simple idea: Dreamers are more awake than the fools. In their world of fantasy and “what ifs,” they have another bit of reality stored away. Their eyes are open and they are ready to face whatever challenges come with realizing those lofty ambitions. They understand that dreams will only ever stay dreams if they don’t take action, if they don’t have enough passion and determination to realize those dreams.

Fools, on the other hand, are asleep. They are wrapped up in their fantasy and the idea, refusing to leave any room for the rational. Their eyes are closed to the world around them and the realities of making their dreams attainable. They make no steps towards realizing these dreams and aspirations, but just spit them out into the world like lost pennies.

They are the ones who have no sense of sacredness and provide no protection for their dreams, but let them die out with their words. They get tired after realizing some minimal effort is required and usually back down easily when asked about their plans. Their motives are skewed and their passions are always limited.

You know you’re a dreamer when you can’t live without your quiet ambitions and hopeful futures. You do not sleep well at night because you want to be out there, achieving the impossible. You keep jobs but never let your real passions die. If you’re a dreamer, you’re alive; if you’re a fool, you’re just sleeping.

Mr Galaxy - Sheryn Binks

Hey there Mr Galaxy,
You’re spinning all around me
Hey there Mr Planet,
Do you know the plan for humanity?

And I wanna see the way we look from up there
And I wanna see the world turned upside down
Restoration, when will you come to us?

Hey there Miss Destitute,

I don’t think we’re looking after you
Hey there little orphan
Can I sit with you and hear your message for them

And I wanna see the way we look from up there
And I wanna see the world upside down
Oh and we’re gonna see the way we look from up there
And we’re gonna see the world upside down

…starin back at me…yeah…

"Which would you choose: a world with pyramids or a world without?"

-Caproni

"…the dream mentor of Giovanni Caproni asks Horikoshi if he would prefer to live in a world with or without pyramids. The implication is this: would you rather live in a world with beautiful things that are rooted in hardship, or would you want to live in a world where our dreams remained untainted by the outside world and therefore unrealized."
