My Granny May, Granpa Jim and Grandfather Mandela
Stillness finds one at the right time. Preparing one's transcendence in this life as an otherworldly vessel of order and peace. It is a state of being not in so many words, rather FEELING and BEING. This is a state where all is as it was ordained to be. Where there is no this or that just,
Dis ease, gone!
This is the state of LOVE!
Love for self thus others.
Grandfather Mandela you say you had all that time in jail to think about putting the TRC structure together. Well, when I was about 12 years old, I started speaking my testimony to myself. Almost like I was reciting something. I didn't know why but I knew it was fundamental and indeed I spoke those words age19 in front of the world, with my grandfather Jim watching me on tv.
My granny's name for me was Nzwakazi which means Princess. My family always says, (she's like Ma). There just could be no higher complement. My granny was a spiritual being and in her spirit I drank deeply. My grandfather was like a walking stick to everyone. Family friends, strangers and children. You could lean on him and feel so safe and secured all the time like one could lean on grandfather Walter Sisulu and many others. There couldn't be more loving human beings that I have been so blessed to share my life with and to encounter even for a short while. And I'm eternally grateful to my parents for raising me up as well as my grandparents who taught me the value of love, humility and kindness.
Thank You wonderful grandparents who mothered and fathered countless souls.
Because of you Sweet Royals,
We honor you deeply and we salute you.
"The measure of anyone's freedom is what they can do without!"
DECLARATION OF FREEDOM
It is when one faces overwhelming grief
When one is in need
That we hear a devine voice, proclaiming;
"He sent me to name them
'Good Trees' and
The Lord's Wonderful Plant.
To all who mourn in Israel he will give
Beauty for ashes;
Joy instead of mourning;
Praise instead of heaviness.
Just when one feels indescribable anguish
In the nick of time
I have heard you
I have helped you
I have healed you
Just when one feels they have achieved all they ever dreamt of
But its not fulfilling
One realizes there is no end to the very thing that one is called to do
That all these achievements are meaningless without doing the very thing one was created to do
All these things are meaningless if one hasn't lived life from the core.
It is when you've lost it all
That you find again
It is when you've given up
That you restored to life again
Is life really about seeking, finding, asking?
Or is there something deeper that accompanies these biblical sayings
Ask you shall be given
Knock the door will open
Seek you shall find
I've come to realize that the true activator to all things noble and good and loving
Lies in surrendering, because while you were praying He heard you
He was always willing to help
The question is
How deeply do you believe
Do you feel the internal calmness and peace in what you desire?
Seek your happiness in the Lord and He will bless you with the desires of your heart! Psalms
Gratitude always elevates
Only the grateful march forth in the midst of death
For even death can be a gift that offers us another great chance effortlessly
Without doing much
Through the gift of presence and
The Power of Intention
All of life speaks
All of life is a marvelous gift
That is sacred and honorable
The minute we dehumanize each other and all of creation
Chaos is born
Karma is thus risen to rectify all that's done wrong
The ultimate is achieved
Life is master at organizing itself perfectly well
All we need do
Is Flow in the grand scheme of things
This gives us peace of mind
Because we know that whatever's happening in our lives and all around us
We know we can trust in the ultimate the ultimate to see us through
His all encompassing majestic ways Omnipotence, light and endless love
Live your truth
The defining difference
Between the haves and the have nots Is strength and health
Strength and health comes from God
And if God is not in the plans
The plans of man are useless
And there's absolutely nothing the haves and the have nots can do without strength, love and well being
So be kind
Live for love
For without love you nothing
And you destroyed
There's enough for everybody in the world
Serve human kind so that all may be well with you.
Perhaps Dr King articulates this truth in ways that speaks clearly to the heart;
"Not everybody can be famous but everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service."
May the grace of God be within us!
