Martin Luther King's Birthday

This could be a day of freedom for all of us.

Are we free from slavery?

Are we indentured servants of our jobs, of our financial obligations, of our beliefs?
Are we still imprisoned in prejudices which divide us as separate cultures and classes?
Are we claiming we are equal to everyone on the planet?
Have we given ourselves inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

While any one of us is limited, lacking and belittled, are we not all enslaved?
Have we allowed the media, advertising, authority figures to tell us what is true?
Are we believing it is better to conform than to make independent choices?
Is our debt to the past or to building a future for ourselves and our children?

This could be the day we speak out.
This could be a day we step up.
This could be a day we grow into the society of Trust in God and Divine Good.
This could be a day I personally wash myself clear of the illusions fear has made.

I am choosing to clear, cleanse, let go with forgiveness and gratitude.
I bless my right and freedom to forgive and choose again.
So it is given me as Divine Birthright and I claim it for us all.
Forgive and Choose Again. Today.

Thank you Dr. Martin Luther King and the many street saints who have gone before us.
I am loving you,
Betty Lue

Yes, I have had the flu for a few days and all is well.
