The deepest form of Community is to join with a brother in a purpose higher than your own. Let today be a reminder there is much to be done and bust out the Love, open your heart and turn up the volume to an eleven.
Martin Luther King’s words from his historic “I Have A Dream” speech reveal more than a dream, his opening remarks offer up a deep truth and a reminder that the moment is now, not tomorrow, not next week, it is always and only now, as we move into this era of global transformation.
“We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.”
The issue of equal rights is part of a larger statement about human rights. About the practice of humanity. Martin Luther King Jr’s dream exploded and became reality. As Michael Beckwith says MLK didn’t go to Washington D.C. and say ‘I have a complaint.’ He went to Washington DC and said “I have a dream.”
See today where you are forgetting your dream and pick it back up and share it with a brother. Join together. As ACIM says an idea grows stronger when shared and there is nothing stronger than an agreement between two people.
It is time to join together. It is time to practice the principles of Non Violence in the pursuit of a global practice of humanity.
On the planet today there are one billion people who live in poverty. Who struggle to feed themselves and their families.
THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE.
When a brother is in trouble, we are all in trouble.
Hiding in the bosom of the cult of culture is not going to do it. No more living in the delusion of separation and being different. No more blinders. It is time for the truth. Recognizing our commonalities. Recognizing our note in the song of the universe enabling the harmony of our practice of humanity, that connection we yearn for to truly resonate. Until all of us on this planet are peaceful, none of us can experience true happiness.
Starting here. Starting now. Make a choice to practice humanity. Make your “fierce urgency of now” flourish in brilliance and connection and Love.
