If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Your life has become an accidental progression of things. One event or experience is followed by another, but with no power, with no joy, with no fulfillment, with no particular relevance. Your life has become a shadow cast in unawareness. And this is because you have lost track of the first dimension, and you have not yet searched for the fourth. And now some days you have peace and other days you do not. Sometimes it is there and sometimes it is not there at all. It was there; somebody insults you – and it is not there. Somebody “steps on your toes” – and it is gone. Anybody can take it and destroy it very easily. You were perfect in the morning; an email, text message comes and something is in the email, something is in the text, and suddenly your entire day is bad. All is disturbed! A single word creates a great disturbance in you. You have become angry, bitter, and you have lost even the tiniest ray of hope. This is why you cannot grow beyond the third dimension. You are still looking for wars to fight. You are still looking for a job that will give your life meaning. You are still looking for a church or mosque that will bring your life to the threshold of salvation. You think that if you simply win the lottery and become rich your life will then have meaning. All is false! For if you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream. . .
God has already lived in 2009! He knew we would be living in a downturned economy. He could foresee a job market that looked abysmal. So He fully understands why today it seems impractical to dream, but just the opposite is true. Now more than ever this society, this nation, this world needs your dream. But first you must surrender your darkness and your lifelong affair with this dimension. Then allow a single moment of God to arise through you and touch the earth with His dream. Because now even the works of Jesus are losing their meaning for modern science has replicated most of his miracles. If simply curing the physical eyes of the blind or making the lame walk is all God has to offer humanity today then sooner or later He will be forgotten. Fortunately, God has called us to do greater things than these. And this is why God is dreaming through you. God is challenging you. And those tests look like mighty mountains and strike you like mighty winds, but they are good tests that will prepare you for your dominion.
God is trying to get you to make something in timelessness. To make something beyond your consciousness, so death cannot destroy it. To make something built on rock, so all agony, all misery, all suffering and fear, all hell disappears. He is trying to get you to usher into this dimension beauty and benediction.
So don’t lose hope. . . keep Life moving. . . maintain the courage to be. . . and in spite of it all. . . still have a Dream.
