An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Yesterday across our country it was Martin Luther King, Jr. day. It is also the birthday of Benjamin Franklin (1706), American printer, journalist, inventor, philosopher, philanthropist, diplomat, and author. While our hearts and minds are appreciatively focused on the power of holding to our ideals I suggest we take a conscious few minutes today to merge with the energy (consciousness) of these men as we place a new President in office. These two souls spent a few eternal moments as Martin and Ben, coming to inspire us with the ideas of Freedom, Equality, and Unity. Their lives were the action of the consciousness they embodied. The ripples from what they believed was right and true still reach us today and is evidenced President Obama.
During this time of such rapid evolution in consciousness on earth we could look at the lives of such men and women and follow their example. And I'm not talking about going public and championing a cause. In the present Now we are required to simply be that which we are in every given moment of our day. So if we say that we believe in Freedom, Equality, and Unity then we must demonstrate these principles of being in every part of our lives. To do that requires awareness and consciousness -- that is where each of us comes in. I believe we hold these qualities with the utmost integrity and so I am asking you to Focus and Concentrate your "thought power" today in order that a few more hearts open to the vibration of where we are going. Throughout the day embody the Namaste attitude and allow an exchange between Souls, not personalities.
I am certain we are the architects of the next grand cycle of life here on Earth and I believe that our missions, our purpose, and our design is the same of that of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Benjamin Franklin; to remind everyone around us that our dreams can become a reality and that We are far more, and capable of being more than we presently know ourselves to be.
Go on now, give it a go,
I am created out of the One source of infinite life. All that I am comes
from this one God, one life, one mind, one intelligence. This One is the
source of all power to create, to heal, and to bless. It is a powerful
source of healing and of restoration. There is nothing that cannot be
accomplished by the power of this One.
Every idea I've ever had has come from this one perfect Source. Every desire
has arisen from it. Every dream has its roots deep in this source. I choose
today to realize that my dreams and desires for my life, whatever they may
be, come from this source with all that is needed to bring them into full
fruition. I'm never given an idea without the accompanying power and
ability to bring it into full form.
Today, I reassess the dreams I hold for my life. I think deeply about what I
would have my life contain. Knowing that Spirit can accomplish anything I
truly believe in, I set my sights on a higher vision, and know that the
power of Spirit can and does fill this potent vision with its creative power
and wisdom. Today I accept that this infinite power is right now flowing
through the ideas I have for a life of love, compassion, abundance, and joy.
Whatever my vision, Spirit now fills it with itself. I am also filled with this
powerful spiritual presence, and I know it. And it is good. And so it is.
