I just had to repost this...a student of mine sent it to me. This video is a culmination of just about everything I am attempting to shed light on in an effort to help others become more enlightened. I think there are two central themes or messages in this video: personal growth and awareness. Both of which have become a mission of mine to not only attain and cultivate for myself, but also to assist others in doing so. It is only through the development of these two aspects of our life that we will attain enlightenment, and overall progress as species.
In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered his "I have a dream" speech. That speech is considered one of the most famous speeches in American history. However, Kings speech was about more than just some random dream, it was about his vision for the future. I recently travelled to Washington DC and on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in front of the Lincoln Memorial I took a moment to distinguish the difference between "dreams" and "vision", and how that distinction is relevant to you and your personal life.
