WE CAN BE THE DREAM!
January 21, 2013Dear Editor;
I have a dream. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream. America’s Founders had a dream. John
Lennon had a dream. Our ancestors had a dream.
We all have dreams. Why aren’t we everythingwe dream we can be? Is it “The Impossible Dream?”
Walt Disney once said
“If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing wasstarted with a dream and a mouse.”
We are dreaming it, and we can do it. We can become The American Dream
a dream of liberty, justice and abundance for all. It is not an impossible dream. Don Quixote of La Mancha fought theunbeatable foe, he reached for the unreachable star, ran where the brave dare not go - all to right theunrightable wrong.Does it seem, as humanity apparently moves into more and more fear, more and more inequity, moreand more senseless, irrational behavior, that we are fighting an unbeatable foe, reaching for theunreachable star when we stand up for life, liberty and justice
for the hearts and spirits of our children?Martin Luther King, Jr. whose birthday we are celebrating on January 21, had a dream of freedom beyond simply the freedom of the blacks from oppression. He included all people in his vision:
when we allow freedom to ring
from every village and every hamlet, from every state and everycity, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jewsand Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"Albert
Einstein once admonished humanity “No problem
can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it
.”Martin Luther King, John Lennon, America’s Founders,
Einstein, all the visionaries and prophetsthroughout the ages transcended the prevailing level of consciousness of their times and saw what was possible when humanity opens it
heart and moves to a higher vibratory level. The dream isimpossible in the frequency of fear, scarcity and separation. The dream is inevitable when we each actfrom our higher conscience.There is a new science that has proven the interconnectedness of all that is. Separation is an illusion.We are One. The prevailing behaviors of greed and war are simply the result of an outmoded operatingsystem
an erroneous set of assumptions a
bout the nature of the universe and humanity’s place in it.
We will be free, free at last, when we release ourselves from the prison of our own minds. We will befree to become everything we dream we can be.Sincerely, Connie Baxter MarlowWoody Creek, CO
