Dr Doris E Roberts, PhD (Metaphysics), Dec 2004
“We become and are continually becoming that which we think, not what we think we are. We are provided information daily that makes a big difference in what type of thoughts are flowing into our minds moment by moment. What we believe to be true is true for us. We really do contribute to what comes next in our lives in more ways than we can even imagine.”

My mother and I are both 71 years old in these photos. I love and miss my mother’s ‘Mona Lisa’ smile, so very different from my toothy one.

CAN YOU PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE? …OF DREAM VALUE (continued from Part I)
When Dr Dris thought of the so-called real world around her, she felt her dream needed less real details and more emotional loving experiences. Also she found, during these dream times, that she was searching deep within her soul for answers. Dr Dris had many unusual dreams and psychic things happening around her throughout her life. She was much too sensitive to the pain that existed all around her and often felt very weak and drained. If there was a cold cruel world her parents believed was waiting, she would need a strong protector.
Occasionally, Dr Dris would think she had to dismiss finding a strong ‘protector’ as a choice not worth dreaming about … no man would desire her for she was nothing special. As a girl and a young woman, Dr Dris was too shy, too sensitive. She thought, “Can I even begin to feel I could love anyone I didn’t really truly know. He would have to love me so much and truly love to answer all my questions and want to teach me all that he knows. Was there any man out there who would even want to take the time to teach me some things that most everyone else already knows?”
WHAT HAPPENED? DID YOUR DREAM FIND YOU?
Yes. Dr Dris met that man in her hometown wearing a Naval Academy cadet uniform, eloped, and had a long happy life together. After over 30 years of marriage, they eventually separated for both Doris and Lou had an additional path to follow to complete their missions in life. Each, in their own way, had to work out for themselves what was next after raising most of their children to adulthood. It was one of the most difficult things Dr Dris ever had to do, but she realized they have a double path karma. Doris often related memories filled with Lou’s intelligent and loving worldly thoughts. He was her first Great Spiritual Teacher and she loved him always. But he was a Vietnam Casualty and drove his family away when love became a burden he could no longer carry. Unfortunately, he was part of and a witness to too much killing and suffering.

EXPLAIN DREAM VALUE.
Dr Dris discovered that if a person can dream it, she/he can live it. She received and conceived the ideal conditions that would make her feel real and whole by serving a purpose this lifetime. So as expected, she was told she was a Dreamer like it was something terrible to be, and it could be, especially if people do not recognize the dream they’re looking for is right inside them and start to begin to actively participate in it as reality. It helps to look around for the good to guide your way and ignore the not so good. When Dr Dris paid too much attention on what she didn’t want, that was what was attracted to her. She discovered her dreams could work the same for the good she desired in her life at any time.
CAN YOU PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE?
Just before graduating from high school one of her dreams came true. Dr Dris was concentrating on what she didn’t want — she was lost in sadness and depression. She also knew she was the only one who could change her life. It came down to deciding what she passionately desired in her life from that moment on. Passion is the key.
The following is an example of Dr Dris’s persistent determination to reach an educational goal: “When I turned 16 my whole life changed. My mother forced me to drop out of school to help bring more money into the household. I dreamed no matter what happened nor how long it would take, I would obtain the highest kind of education I could so I immediately enrolled in night school to graduate with my High School class. Also, I set my mind on a life I wanted; I wanted a husband, an exciting life of travel and service to others, and children to love (circa late 1940s/early 1950s).”
Dreaming assisted Dr Dris in understanding what Love truly was. She wanted to be a part of something bigger than herself. Dr Dris also wanted to be protected as a woman with a strong man loving her, and together give birth to children she could love and provide a loving childhood she never had. All this may seem very insignificant and very basic for any woman, but she wanted hers to be something unusual and different. Dr Dris wanted her life to be filled with romance and adventure.

A life of existence on Planet Earth is our destiny. Those of us, who are aware of the choices we have made, need not carry our well-learned lessons with us further into this new millennium. Essentially this means we do not have to keep learning the same lessons over and over again as we have done in the past. We have only to choose to come from Love not Fear. It is not easy but it is possible and in all likelihood, probable.
Love is indeed the best known traveled road in mankind’s search of inner transcendence, whether or not we realize it is the path we selected to be on.
Love, as most of us think of it, is often attached to a person, place or thing outside of ourselves. It comes disguised as a form of possessiveness, which was emotionally provided at birth as the way to survive until adulthood.
Childhood, unfortunately, is a very traumatic experience for us all. Consequently, it is the loss of what we term possessions that create grief and rage during childhood, which spills over into adulthood.
Until we come to terms with the concept of prosperity and realize that once created experiences and things can be created again. But true love often remains outside our grasp.
Love, we discover, is not a possessive ownership of anything or anyone. It is the base foundation necessary to experience free choice. We are no longer in bondage. With love comes our freedom to be.
