Here was the great discovery: while dreaming, I discovered that I had not lost my freedom. I could do anything. I could live any kind of life I wanted—in my mind.
Then I realized that God is there, and he does love me. He gave me the gift of dreaming, and I discovered that I had the freedom to choose my thoughts.
This was a profound moment in my life because, yes, we have the freedom to think; but sometimes we fail to realize the power we possess because we fail to realize that we have the freedom to choose the thoughts we have.
We can think negative thoughts, or we can think positive thoughts. Irrespective of the outcome, irrespective of the circumstances, we control our thought choices, no one else; and we can live within that. That was exciting for me to realize.
