Dreamers see what is possible, but have difficulty implementing what is needed to succeed. While we see a much larger picture of life, we experience problems making things real, because many of the tools needed are not yet available. This creates stress, as problems emerge that were not anticipated. By Idealizing our goals, we underestimate what is actually needed to make things happen. We also discover that just because someone has a similar goal, it does not mean we have a similar process for achieving that goal. We seek affirmation and confirmation believing we are the only ones who can see the bigger picture. We lose our Passion or it becomes strangled by the conflicts.
Dreamers tend to follow their own path. We are willing to take risks by participating in start-ups, or we fight the world independently by demonstrating the novelty of our solutions. Some of us are social change-agents; we are seeking to shift the way things are done. This opens up opportunities for greater engagement. Foundations or charitable contributions fund some of us in our work. As the capitalistic system keeps evolving, it is because the Dreamers are expanding the social context. Externalities, such as global warming, are demanding the changes Dreamers seek.
In the third stage, our Primary Creative Expression emerges and we discover that our contribution is more about a state of being than what we actually do. It becomes clear that releasing Attachments to safety, Positions about security and Projections about self importance are ways we expand our Authentic Life Expression. By rebalancing ourselves, others cannot create doubt in us. We start to break-though and become the person we know ourselves to be. What we are seeking is a wholesome and authentic way of being that does not distance us from accomplishing our goals. We learn the lesson of Transpersonal Intimacy, where we open ourselves up to rejection, knowing it will lead to deeper, more complete relationships.
Like the second stage, there are seven lessons that help us to progressively actualize our Primary Creative Expression. Each successive level increases our comfort with complexity and allows us to deepen into an appreciation of who we naturally are. Exploring contributions with our constituents can guide us to find ways to engage our power in alignment with our creative Intent. We no longer sabotage our Primary Creative Expression and can be seen in ways that do not automatically provoke reactions in others.
