“Every great dream begins with a dreamer.”
Imagine a city where common annoyances are nonexistent.
Instead of standing in long lines, you take a number and a comfortable chair waits from which to make a phone call, write an overdue letter or enjoy some pleasure reading.
Traffic flows; gridlock is ancient history; parking spaces are plentiful; and when you go into government offices, city and county officials are polite, helpful and efficient.
Imagine a United States where politicians are immediately held accountable if they break their solemn vow to uphold the Constitution; where members of the CIA, IRS, FDA, FBI, police, etc. are held fully accountable if they trample the freedoms of law-abiding citizens; and where executives of the food, tobacco, alcohol, pharmaceutical and any other industry are held accountable if they lie, mislead or withhold information from the public about the harmful effects of their products.
Imagine a world where kindness, decency and human rights are valued; where our environment and planet are safeguarded for the benefit of all; where the inhumanity of war, murder, violence and bigotry are but shadowy dogmas of a distant past.
Envisioning a better world, simply envisioning it, must be a first step in making it happen.
Harriet Tubman (1820-1913), in her fight against slavery said, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer.” She went on to make her dream of freedom a reality, not only for herself but for many others as well. In our country, such visions were paramount in dissolving the evils of slavery. As then, we the people have the means to improve our lot.
Individual-by-individual, each person in his or her uniqueness has the power to foresee a more benevolent world. When we think about an area of life we want improved, when we visualize it as we wish it to be, we start the wheels turning.
First it is a dream, a bright idea; next it requires the application of some elbow grease; then it grows by tiny steps or giant steps, but always carefully tended; in due time it reaches full stature1; finally, the dream, the bright idea, is a reality!
My dream is that all children have within their grasp a means to survive well in today’s world. I learned of a tool that can help make this happen when introduced to L. Ron Hubbard’s educational philosophy and Study2 Technology3. I have seen it work no less than a thousand times. But a tool must be known about and understood before it can be used. So my dream includes finding more and more ways to make these educational advances better known. This in turn will give more and more children the opportunity to use them.
Thus, I align with like-minded educators so by number alone we can expand our reach. Progress presses forward. And our payment, surpassing a King’s ransom, is the happy face of the child who knows deep within his heart he is the master over anything he desires to learn!
What is your dream for our planet?
What are your plans for bringing betterment to Mother Earth?
Share dreams, take action, a brighter world awaits!
