Yesterday we celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For the last few years I’ve taken this opportunity to watch the inspiring “I have a dream” speech he gave in August of 1963 in Washington DC,
MLK understood the importance of having a vision. He knew that, if held firmly, consistently and clearly, a strong vision has the power to influence those around you and to shift the very fabric of the physical universe.
Martin Luther King saw his dream and he made it real, first within himself, and then, slowly, in the world around him.
To many around him this dream of equality for African Americans, must have seemed impossible. But he held so strongly to his vision that others began to “see” his vision as well. His dream became so real for him that he attracted men and women of all colors and religions to help him spread this dream.
Martin Luther King believed in his dream with such strength, determination and courage that, ultimately millions of others took up that dream.
His dream, while not fully realized, continues to grow. We continue to benefit from the blessing of this man’s vast vision as we stumble towards a world in which all men and women truly are created equal, a reality in which people are, as he said, “not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
That day in Washington Martin Luther King said, “With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.”
I believe YOU hold the key to transforming the “jangling discords” of our world.
They are, after all, not so different from the jangling discords Martin Luther King felt when he was spreading his dream.
As a Modern Day Mystic, you understand the power of Vision. You understand how a clear vision empowers you to live into these words from another great visionary and help you to… “be the change you wish to see.”
I too, have a dream that one day, everyone on this Earth will have the chance to remember, learn and live the truth that the power to change their lives comes, not from outside of themselves, but from within.
I have a dream that, one day, our children will be shown how to stay connected to the great creative power they carry with them into this physical world. And that they will be shown how to use this power with clarity, integrity and joy.
And I have a dream that, soon, there will be millions of us consciously harnessing the infinite, creative powers of Life, and together we will co-create the end of suffering and open the door to a world of peace, prosperity, joy and love for all.
