How I Deceptively Turned Some Dreams Into Reality

Updated on May 8, 2015

Here lately, we have been reading and studying the Biblical book of Ecclesiastes. The reading has my mind spinning about life and the quality of it. The writer of this book was King Solomon. Solomon was very wise and this wisdom almost overtook him.

Consider some of the words written in Ecclesiastes:

Chapter 6, Verses 1 and 2

There is another serious tragedy I have seen under the sun, and it weighs heavily on humanity. God gives some people great wealth and honor and everything they could ever want, but then he doesn’t give them the chance to enjoy these things. They die, and someone else, even a stranger, ends up enjoying their wealth! This is meaningless—a sickening tragedy.


I believe somehow or somewhere early in life I may have had this scripture in my subconscious. That is why I write this hub; to explain to you how I deceived myself to reach dreams that I felt I couldn't reach unless I did it my way.

See how I deceptively reached some of my dreams after the video.

To The Moon Or Mars

Very early in life I had these dreams of being an astronaut. I watched as Apollo 11 touched down on the moon, and Neil Armstrong stepped out of the spaceship and uttered the famous words heard by many: "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." It was at this single moment back in 1969 that I decided I wanted to be an astronaut.

I didn't work towards achieving this dream too much, but in a way I did.

I found drugs and I deceptively became an astronaut.

I started with flying around the atmosphere of Earth by smoking marijuana.

I reached out to circle the moon hoping to see Neil and Buzz by using pills that would keep me awake called speed.

I rode the rocket that led me to the planet Mars when I ate little pieces of paper that contained LSD.

The planet Neptune was amazing until the rocket crashed into the sea when I tried Cocaine.

The last trip to space I made kept me orbiting the super-hot sun when Methamphetamine entered my bloodstream.

Many other astronauts died attempting these flights in space. By all rights, I too should have died, but I believe God allowed me to live so that other want-to-be astronauts would learn.

Do Not Deceive Yourself-drugs are not the answer to your dreams.

I am very happy that I am no longer an astronaut. While being one, I found I deceived myself into the answer of another dream.

Arguing The Law

As a child, I watched a television show almost daily. It was about a lawyer that won every case he took. he defended many people that were innocent and made sure they were treated fairly by the justice system. This lawyers name was:

Perry Mason

I longed to be a lawyer just like Perry.

I found that by reaching the deceptive dream of being an astronaut, I also found a deceptive way to become an attorney. Finding myself in trouble with the law because of drugs, I tried to tell my lawyer how to do his job. This didn't work out too well and soon I was in prison.

In lockup, I found myself trying to explain to other convicts how to "beat" cases. I read law books trying to get myself out.

Why wasn't the justice system like the one Perry Mason worked for?

It finally sank in, well kind of; that was T.V. and this is real life. I still get caught up in trying to be a lawyer at times, but I have realized that life just isn't fair. There is no such lawyer in this world. Perry Mason was just a made up character and the law system doesn't work the way it worked there.

The Whole Point

We sometimes have dreams and that is fine. What isn't fine is trying to find the easy, deceptive way of making those dreams come true.

We need to work and go on the correct paths to attain those dreams. By setting goals and objectives, we can make dreams come true.

You know, I once had another dream. I dreamed of having my own deserted island and being on it with the woman I loved.

Guess what?

I am on that island; it isn't deserted...there are nearly 4,000,000 people here, but I am with the woman I love.

Oh, a wonderful dream come true!!

      I just now saw this; I wonder how it slipped by.

      I still believe in dreams coming true. You are an amazing and beautiful butterfly that I adore.

      Thanks froggy. I thought I had comment, sorry! We all have dreams, some will come true, others will be there just to have us on that wonderful feeling of flying high. You are the frog that became my blue prince.

      The thing is to feel happy with what you have even if dreams do not come true.
