What Each One of Us Can Learn from Nelson Mandela free pdf What each ONE of us can Learn from Nelson Mandela (Madiba) Thoughts from my Wordpress blog at www.mandelamadiba.wordpress.com "Thank you, God for Madiba. To know him is to know what we can one day be... and become." - the words of Desmond Tutu "What we are is God's gift to us, what we become is our gift to God" High Flight "Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings- Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long delirious, burning blue, I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace Where never lark, or even eagle flew - And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod The high untresspassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand and touched the face of God." - Pilot Officer Gillespie Magee No 412 squadron, RCAF Killed 11 December 1941 "After climbing a great hill, one finds that there are many more mountains to climb." "It always seems impossible... Until it gets done." - Nelson Mandela "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking- so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us- it is 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." - Marianne Williamson I love these words from Marianne Williamson as used by Nelson Mandela in his inaugeration speech as State President at South Africa's first Democratic Election in 1994. Madiba, your immense nobility and generosity of spirit lives on...forever "You humbly bestrode the earth like a colossus of reconciliation. Madiba, you soared across the heavens, like a comet leaving us to follow the streaks and giving each one of us a flicker of hope in a very disunited, divided world." People all over the world see in Nelson Mandela hope for the future: "From seeds of hope to endless possibilities"). We live in a community and it's being part of a community that makes us human. Madiba's message was change through struggle. He was there to serve his people. He made us question how can we better conduct our own lives? It's how I change... for the better. You do things for yourself- however you only realise your humanity when you are doing things for others. What can I do for others? And that is I how I realise MY humanity There is a Madiba sitting in every ONE of us!!... "YOU be the change you wish to see in others. Then in changing YOUR world you help change THE world... for the better" -Mohandas Gandhi In building a nation it's up to us to find a unity of purpose, in spite of our differences. Be proud of your heritage and celebrate it. Yet know that we all united in a common humanity. "There is neither Zulu, Xhosa, Tswana, Pedi. Afrikaner, boer, "rooinek," Coloured or Indian, male or female. There is only a God-filled humanity." "Whilst we can (and should) celebrate our differences, let not our varying beliefs divide us, but let the Spirit of our shared humanity define and unite us." He has ascended to the stars. Madiba has become a lode-star to guide us...and so make a better world... and make each one of us better people. South Africa's journey is the world's journey. Madiba's journey on earth may have ended, but the challenge of the world remains - to follow Madiba's leg

About Craig Lock

About the Author on the 'Writing Journey': "I 'work' with ideas...and words are my tools." "I write because I simply HAVE to" "Writers help readers to see the world differently." "I write because something inside myself, inner and unconscious forces me to. That is the first compulsion. The second is one of ethical and moral duty." "I write about and believe in the resilience of humanity- I truly believe in the triumph of the human spirit." "I really value words and the power of them to communicate effectively- so in my various stories try to illustrate and then let readers draw their own conclusions about a certain scenario, as well as the characters searching for their own values in an increasingly complex social and political landscape. However, I do feel an obligation to give a complete picture of the situation, which is often not a clear-cut 'black or white' issue (as in South Africa). I never want to proscribe how people should think and feel my only duty as a writer is to be totally honest." - craig "I love to write about, share stories of the resilience and courage of ordinary (what's that?) people." In his various writings Craig strives in some small way to break down and economic, social, cultural and religious barriers. Craig believes that whilst we should celebrate our differences, what we share in the form of our common humanity is way more important than what divides us. Craig believes in (and loves) sharing information and insights to try to make some difference in this world: to help and especially encourage people along life's magical journey to live their dreams and be all they can be... and that brings him the greatest joy. He truly believes in the great potential of people to be all they can be an become. Craig is currently "working" on 'Endless Possibilities, Far and Great Horizons' - true inspiring stories of the human condition in overcoming seemingly impossible odds. In his life mission Craig hopes to encourage, motivate and inspire people to be their best through realising their full potentials and live their very best lives. Craig believes in the great potential of every human being in the journey of life and loves to encourage people to share their individual (and guiding) spirits, so that they become all that they are CAPABLE of being. The various books that Craig "felt inspired to write" are available at: http: //www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 All proceeds go to needy and underprivileged children - MINE!
