I Can Dream

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere

Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue

If I can dream of a better land

Where all my brothers walk hand in hand

Tell me, why? Oh why, oh why can't my dream come true?

~~ If I Can Dream sung by Elvis Presley

I have now seen the new Elvis movie twice with two different friends. I still have the same opinion after watching it again – absolutely phenomenal! One of my favorite Elvis songs of all time was included in the movie which is “If I Can Dream.” The song was not written by Elvis but was written for him in response to the killing of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., an event which touched him deeply as it did so many of us. Senseless killings always stir up the questions that this song raises. Do we have to wait for more of these and other traumatic tragedies for us to decide to “dream of a better land” and go beyond dreaming to figure out what we can do to live in a world that works for all of us?

Dear Angels, I know it is of no use to ask why when there is a tragedy and they seem to be occurring more frequently these days. Just today there was another horrific event where innocent lives were taken. You have taught me to not ask why but instead to ask what can we do going forward. Please help us understand more about how our dream, our vision of a better land, can come true.

Dear Ones, there is indeed an equilibrium in the universe guided by the universal Law of Harmony. This law works simply by removing all the arguments, conflicts, and negativity from all parts of your life. Piece of cake, right? It is easier than it sounds. What this calls for is emotional intelligence, getting control of your emotions for the good of all. Your energy vibrates within and around you all of the time, connecting you with each other and with the constant flow of universal energy and events. This energy is influenced by your thoughts; thus with your thoughts you become a creator. As one of the creators you are partly responsible for shaping and forming the energy of the universe. Universal Oneness, Dear Ones, means that everything in the universe is living for everything else. What is happening on the inside determines what’s happening on the outside. Your world is shaped by your thoughts. Therefore, everything is possible. The energy of your thoughts transforms into the energy of your reality. As human being, you are much more than a body, or emotions, or mind. Your inner core is indestructible as part of the spiritual consciousness of the universe. You see, Dear Ones, this is the short version of this immutable law. It is up to all of you to delve deeper into it to figure out how you can incorporate it into your life to effect the change you wish to see in your life.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to continue to dream of a world where we all get along and help each other the best we can. My commitment is to do my part to usher in more peace in the world.
