Don’t open your eyes; don’t deprive yourself of this moment. Let yourself drift to the farthest corner of your imagination, and don’t try to suppress the faint sigh that wants to slip from between your lips. No one can touch you here, in your dreams. Dreams can outweigh reality if you allow them to breathe, to stretch, to grow. Worries are pushed from your conscience, replaced by a kaleidoscope of your favorite and most desired moments. Here, you are invincible, and no one can tear you away from your passions unless you allow them to. So let your breath calm and soften; let your imagination sigh in the splendor of this moment; and remember not to open your eyes.
