Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Another year, another Dr. King holiday. As usual, profiteers don’t miss an occasion to make a $. The travesty is, many of us will fall for the trap. Dr. King dedicated his life in service to others. As a lightworker, that is the promise you made prior to this incarnation. You promised that you would work in service for the greater good. How many of you have forgotten your promise?
Looking at the world we currently life in, it is a wonder anyone would volunteer to come to this God forsaken planet. But, has God really forsaken us, or have we forgotten what is ours to do? I bring this up today because Dr.Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his life to improve the lives of others. He gave up his family, his legacy, his world in order to push an agenda of peace and love forward. How far have we come?
The divide between people right here in America has become greater than ever. I call it the blacklash. Since Barack Obama was elected president, it has been open season on minorities and women. While I seldom delve into politics, Dr. King was a politician and a pastor. He was a leader, but make no mistake that he employed strategy in all he did. His oracle gift gives us much to think about. If you have the time, really listen to some of his speeches and teachings. Wise a man he was, ahead of his time to be sure.
I implore you to use your gifts and talents in service to others. Yes, it is a pain in the ass because it seems people always want more than you are willing to give. That is why you must define and HOLD your personal boundaries. Your gift is what you came to share. Are you living up to your potential?
Do not let another year pass without taking the time to learn more about you. Trust your intuition, listen to your guidance. After you receive your message, you MUST ACT!
Happy belated Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We could sure use your voice of reason today.
