“Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.”
It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power.
And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals.
Just keep being friendly to that person.
Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long.
Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning.
They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes
they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period,
but just keep loving them.
And by the power of your love they will break down under the load.
That’s love, you see.
It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love.
There’s something about love that builds up and is creative.
There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive.
So love your enemies.”
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am the dream that King had,
the dream that Gandhi saw,
the dream that Joseph interpreted,
the dream that Jesus resurrected,
the dream that Buddha released,
the dream that Allah embodied,
the dream that Krishna loved.

I am the beginning and the end and all in between,
the alpha and the omega and the breath of life
recreating as Spirit moving in all directions at once.

My name is everywhere, everything and everyone.
I have no restrictions, no boundaries, no walls,
no apprehension, no fear, no pain, no hatred.   .   .    .
King 5I am the dream that King had, a dream without borders,
a dream of even greater things than the mere confines of the universe could ever imagine.
I am unlimited.
