 I Have a Dream Today

Do You?

by Marilyn Jenett

 Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered a speech on August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Washington, D.C. Lincoln Memorial during the march on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. In 1964 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

What does his speech have to do with YOUR prosperity consciousness?

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.” I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream.  A dream based on the true meaning of our nation’s creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

But the human race is governed by an even more authoritative creed. Do you realize that in prosperity terms we are all created equal and it is every person’s birthright to access the abundance in this very rich Universe?

Do you think that the color of your skin or your gender or the social or economic status to which you were born - or your past - determines your ability to attract abundance into your life?

Yes, injustice and oppression have existed throughout history and in modern times. We cannot deny the fact that human error thought – man turning away from his spiritual light – has caused unimaginable suffering and limitation in this world.

But I would like to say that if you are reading this today, you are most likely not bound by that limitation. The only limitation that exists for you is your own error thought – your own reliance on your personal history to determine your potential.

Many great successes have been born from the ghettos. Many disadvantaged people have overcome personal and societal limitations to shine their light and bring beauty, invention and change to humanity – or to their communities.

On a radio show, I was asked if prosperity consciousness were cultural. This was my answer…

“We know there are people from every culture that may have been born into poverty or raised in poverty who have become wealthy. So it’s not that the law is not working culturally for most people. They just haven’t learned to work the law. They haven’t become aligned. So it can be cultural. It can be societal. But I have a saying…'One with God is a majority.' It doesn’t matter where you come from, what your cultural background is, what your conditioning is. When you’re ready…if you’re ready to advance…somehow you will attract the right teacher…the right knowledge…the right wisdom…to get you on your path. So I think it’s an individual...maybe a soul decision, but I don’t think 'cultural' is an excuse to hold us back."

There is such an abundance of information available today about the laws of mind and spirit that there is no excuse, cultural or otherwise, that can keep you from expressing your potential and fulfilling your dreams.

Today we are celebrating one great man’s dream. Will you use that as an inspiration to break the chains of limitation, seek your freedom to prosper and to dust off your own dream?

Can you put aside all excuses based on personal and cultural history, past experience and past conditioning and state, “I have a dream”…

And go for it?

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
