I was deeply moved by watching Martin Luther King deliver his 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech.
I found myself immersed in inner work in response to it – in between my tears from being moved.
Aided by the buoyancy I felt from listening, at that moment, the penny dropped for me on what Archangel Michael had asked of me on Nov. 26, 2020. (1)
Previously I had no context for his remarks, could find no power within myself that would take charge of a task not understood, and felt confused and impotent. I searched for what he could be asking of me.
Rev. King’s speech re-awakened the human-rights decision maker in me and I remembered all I knew then. This was again a huge missing piece for me, one that I had all but forgotten.
Now I had a context to interpret what Michael was saying. The “me” that was called forth on the refugee bench is the “me” Michael was speaking to: That “me” gladly lived by a higher standard.
Oh, yes, someone else would get the realization in their own way. And maybe I only got ten percent of it, but it’s what I’ve called a beachhead of understanding. I have a small bit of dry land I can stand on now.
Yes, the person who sat at the head of the room had to respect the claimant’s rights in all ways. All proceedings were recorded. Any decision could be appealed and overturned by a higher court.
The laws was requiring me to be the best possible person I could be.
Reflecting on what that brought out in me allows me to both access that side of myself and update the file in all respects.
Realization seems to begin with remembrance.
What Michael was asking of me in November was: Live up to a higher standard. Thank you to the spirit of Dr. King for reminding us what a higher standard looks like.
