We Are All One...

"We all live within the same illusion and are, in our own way and in our own time, trying to understand the truth behind it all. Some may not be looking at the moment or even in this particular life, but ultimately we will all wake up from the dream and remember who we really are. Ultimately, we will all become one..."

I Had A Dream...

I had a really vividly profound dream the other night that I was Martin Luther King Jr. and that I was giving my first speech ever in a small night club that had an open mic for poets and musicians. The club was strictly for those of color and the MC who introduced me enthusiastically was a black woman who had no idea who I was or what I was about to say. I was planning to speak out about all of the inequality that I had seen in the world and about the ignorance and prejudice out there and the lack of rights that we had as individuals with dark skin. I knew how taboo that this was at that time and I could feel the deep fear of what I was about to do before I went up on stage.

Once on stage, I meditated to myself for a moment in silence and then began to speak out fervently from the depths of my heart. As I did this, I began to feel more and more deeply how truly important that speaking about this was. I could feel the burning passion that I had inside for spreading this message of love and equality for all beings on Earth and, as I continued to speak, I looked out and saw the woman who had introduced me. For a moment, I could see the fear that she had in her eyes of the potential consequences of allowing me to continue speaking in this manner and I could tell that part of her wanted to take me off stage. I understood this fear deeply, but I was driven to keep speaking anyway. After another few minutes, I could sense that she had begun to understand, as I had, the crucial nature of this message, as she sat down to listen. Slowly, I felt the hearts of everyone else there as well begin to embrace a sense of unity with one another as they began to acknowledge themselves as the beautiful human beings that they were who had just as much right to live and breathe and love and be free as any other beings had on this planet. As I saw the sheer beauty and intensity of this incredible, pivotal, moment unfolding before me, it brought tears to my eyes.

The next morning, when I awoke, I was completely awestruck and felt indescribably privileged to have had such a dream and to have been able to feel like I had been there to witness a be a part of such a beautiful and defining moment for humanity. I know that it was just a dream, but it was so deep and meaningful that I can't help but feel that to have experienced it was, perhaps, one of the single greatest and most beautiful sensations of my life...


  1. The dream sounds like a blessing... a gift!! Why do you imagine it was given you at this moment? What to do with it ...hmmnnn? :) maggie

    1. I think it was meant to show me how beautiful the world can be, the depths of my own potential and that, no matter what stage we think we are at in our lives, anything is possible.. :)
