My Dream

I have a dream –
to end all tyranny.

A new dream? No!

Humans of olden times
have had this dream.

I am sure of it!

Some few lived it well
and died for it.

Some few only hoped for it.

Some few were troubled
by its presence,
and knew not what might come of it.

Many fought against the dream.

Most, it seems, did call it nonsense
that could never work
in life’s reality which needed more control.

(A few with such conspiring thoughts
did lead the way to tyrannies
too terrible to think about –
when humans suffered so
that lives they once had lived
would not be spared.
But, oh, the “good life” of the despot!)

On every level of existence,
most of us have felt injustice
sting us from a bully.

How then can we end such tyranny?

Not by force for certain!
For that would be no better
than the problem.

At best, we might defend
the right to live our dream
against an unjust thief.

But joining forces in rebellion?

(Give that much thought!
There is a difference.)

So what then will succeed?

Look to the presence of the dream!
It holds the answer.

It is this dream that mirrors a divine Presence
within us.
It is this dream that defines humanity.
It is this dream that yearns for freedom.

It is a dream of loving compassion.
It is a dream of acceptance and forgiveness.

It is a dream that knows no bounds.
No! Absolutely none!

It is unconditional, and it is a gift.

It requires no payment, no sacrifice,
no sacred rituals to follow,
no middleman to explain it,
not even a “saving faith”
to secure a sacred reward.

The dream only hopes
to be discovered within
and to be shared without.

The dream only hopes for change –
the world around –
to bring justice through love for all.
And for humanity to be its instrument.

This has become my dream too.
This has become my hope as well.
This is my gift to you.
May we live this dream together!

May we enjoy the liberty and the benefits
of our dream!

May we love ourselves enough to mirror
the love our Dream has for us!
Then it will spill out and over others.
