The Magic of Dreams
Today is January 16th, 2012. It is my birthday. It is also Martin Luther King Day, as it is a Monday. Also Dragon Appreciation Day and the day before Benjamin Franklin's birthday. (His birth certificate says Jan 6, 1706 but a calendar change happened in there somewhere) Each day alone would be a time to think about the importance of having a dream, of working for worthy goals, of identifying and following one's passion. When they all come together it must be mandated to look to a higher vision. MLK is famous for his "I Have A Dream" speech, among other things. Dragon is a word that comes from a Greek word 'to see'. I'm up there in years, a time when people tend to look to what good things need to be encouraged to come about. Franklin was a very forward looking man, full of ideas and willing to work to bring forth our nation, among other good works. Surely this is a day when dreams will seem to be possible. Take advantage of this and look to what is unique about you, what your special dream is. What joy, tolerance, clarity will you nurture into being? Today I wish for all wise magicians that they will experience the joy of having a dream, that they will experience the power of standing for a cause. That sense of higher purpose will bring goodness and magic into your life. May the spark be with you.
