21 NOVEMBER 2021 = MANIFESTING THE GLORY OF GOD WHICH IS WITHIN IN US —(Nelson Mandela’s Inaugural Speech)
I return to the subject of my blog of the 12 September = Nelson Mandela’s inaugural speech. Then I concentrated on the part which talked about ‘our deepest fear’ being NOT that we are inadequate but that ‘we are powerful beyond measure’.
Today I wish to emphasise the part of the speech which reads ‘We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us; it’s not just in some of us: it’s in everyone!/And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same./As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others!’
It can be quite frightening to consider that God is within us and that all the answers we need to lead our lives are, indeed, WITHIN US. This is because we neglect to see ourselves as being simply I AM — a soul in a body.
We view ourselves as this person who likes ‘this’ and doesn’t like ‘that’ — who believes ‘this’ and not ‘that’.
WE IDENTIFY WITH OUR EGO SELVES AND NOT OUR SOULS.
I will end by repeating the lines of Nelson Mandela’s speech which read
‘AS WE LET OUR OWN LIGHT SHINE, WE UNCONSCIOUSLY GIVE OTHER PEOPLE PERSMISSION TO DO THE SAME.
AS WE ARE LIBERATED FROM OUROWN FEAR, OUR PRESENCE AUTOMATIFALLY LIBERATES OTHERS!’
