Your Own Great Dream

Your Own Great Dream
This week we are commemorating the life and death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his dream. Dr. King, like other individuals such as Gandhi or the recently passed Nelson Mandela, did not dream of fame, money, or power, although he became famous and wielded the power of having many supporters. His dream was to help the world.

I believe these men had very pure minds, hearts, and spirits. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was indeed a great soul, and great souls transcend religion and nationality. When people miss him, people miss his spirit. But while his physical body is gone, his spirit still exists everywhere. Dr. King’s dream is still alive in his spirit. That’s his legacy that lives on.

However, when I see people mourn for Martin Luther King, or when I watched the news coverage of Nelson Mandela’s funeral, I feel anguish in my heart. Many people, while expressing their grief and condolences, forget or don't realize that they have also have a great soul inside of them. Each person is no less great or beautiful than Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In not realizing that important truth, that important energy principle, many do not realize their important value.

Commemorating Dr. King’s passing is not enough to make his dream come true. We cannot solve the problems the world faces simply by honoring great people. Dr. King was able to live a life recognized as great by millions of people because he chose to remain true to his soul. He acted on his dream to help the world.

I hope every person can feel their own greatness in every cell of their body, and I hope each person has the courage to honor that greatness within themselves by the choices they make in their lives. We who are still living are the hope for the future. We can carry on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy and make a great one of our own.
