Happy 50th anniversary to the iconic Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
May we increasingly make the dream our reality.
Part of MLK’s stirring speech, made 50 years ago this week:
The full text of MLK’s speech, from the National Archives.
* nb. It is not particularly ‘Buddhist‘, or ‘Spiritual‘ to stand aside when injustice is done.
Like MLK says, anger isn’t best.
Forget the resentment; by holding a controlled mind we have a powerful weapon.
Mentally stepping back from the situation gives us emotional space. Allows us the power we need.
Then just standing for justice promotes it; and those who are oppressed have a valuable friend. (times by however many stand by them).
“If we are one consciousness, then anybody else’s injustice, becomes our injustice!
NO more looking the other way.”
Davis Icke (via We Are Change):
Conversely, if we do stand aside and look the other way, then evil will flourish; because good men have done nothing.
Now is the Time
to Let Freedom Reign.
“Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.”
