have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the
true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red
hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave
owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I
have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert
state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be
transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that
my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be
judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their
character. I have a dream today."
Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a
dream based on the true meaning of our nation's creed: "We hold these
truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
Do you realize
that in prosperity terms we are all created equal and it is every
person's birthright to access the abundance in this very rich Universe?
Do you think that
the color of your skin or your gender or the social or economic status
to which you were born determines your ability to attract abundance
into your life?
Yes, injustice and
oppression have existed throughout history and in modern times. We
cannot deny the fact that human error thought - man turning away from
his spiritual light - has caused unimaginable suffering and limitation
in this world.
But I would like
to say that if you are reading this today, you are most likely not
bound by that limitation. The only limitation that exists for you is
your own error thought - your own reliance on your personal history to
determine your potential.

have overcome personal and societal limitations to shine their light
and bring beauty, invention and change to humanity - or to their
On a radio show
recently, I was asked if prosperity consciousness were cultural. This
was my answer...
"We know there are people from every culture that may have been born
into poverty or raised in poverty who have become wealthy. So it's not
that the law is not working culturally. They just haven't learned to
work the law. They haven't become aligned. So it can be cultural. It
can be societal. But I have a saying..."One with God is a majority." It
doesn't matter where you come from, what your cultural background is,
what your conditioning is...when you're ready...if you're ready and
when you're ready to advance...somehow you will attract the right
teacher...the right knowledge...the right wisdom... to get you on your
path. So I think it's an individual...maybe a soul decision, but I
don't think "cultural" is an excuse to hold us back."
There is such an abundance of information available today about the
laws of mind and spirit that there is no excuse, cultural or otherwise,
that can keep you from expressing your potential and fulfilling your
19th, we are celebrating one great man's dream. Will you use that as an
inspiration to break
the chains of limitation, seek your freedom to prosper and to dust off
your own dream?
Can you put aside
all excuses based on personal and cultural history, past experience and
past conditioning and state, "I have a dream"...
go for it?
