You are in a frightening situation, one that you have never been in before. You try to catch your breath as you take stock of the circumstances. You know that if you can call up a certain smell, it will make you feel safe and protected. You also remember there is a certain memory that always erases your worries when you recall it. What is the ”safe” smell? What is that life-saving memory? Let it come back and protect you now.
”I, frankly, don’t dream, because I want to remain happy,” the late film actor Om Puri from India told a newspaper. ”When you dream too much and the dream doesn’t come true, you hurt yourself. And I don’t want to hurt myself. So I don’t dream. I take things as they are.”
Do you agree with what Om Puri says? Could you live your life without dreams because you were afraid of getting hurt if they didn’t come true?
