Infusing more life into life

SABBATICAL STATE OF MIND

Honoring Dr. King

January 15, 2018

We understand the physics of energy. 

 

“A body in motion will stay in motion, a body at rest will stay at rest.” 

 

We know, what it takes to change direction, right?

 

"Energy, aka a force of nature"

 

So, what gave Dr. King the courage to harness enough energy to move a nation at rest?  And to create enough energy to create to move the nation into a new era?  Here are 3 practices that I believe Dr. King did more consistently and skillfully than most of us.


1. Dr. King believed that the best way to challenge a pervasive reality is to own the narrative on an even bigger, better, more livable one.

 

2 - Dr. King challenged an imagined reality with a better dream. The dream that we could live together with our differences and still live fulfilled lives.

 

3 - Dr. King trusted that on the fringes of a very constrained reality, we could dream outside the lines to believe another life was possible.

 

I HAVE A DREAM....

Today's Reflection

I plan to celebrate by spending time today to reflect on: 1- What dreaming is meant to do and 2 - What courage looks like in the face of a reality that is so stubborn about taking a new form. 

 

No matter how still change feels at times, I believe Dr. King would be pleased that so many of us are able to live in a dream that he thought was possible.

 

Still work to do but we are headed towards the Promised Land.
