Terror

We have choices.

With the new wave of terror that now invades our living rooms, splayed on screens around the world. We have the choice to let these people monopolise our thoughts and therefore our actions or we can hold firmly to serenity

Serenity “Clear and calm , unruffled unperturbed. ” defined by  the Concise Oxford Dictionary.

No it is not easy – but not to remain so means we let these people who would otherwise have no influence in or on our life, direct and guide our lives defining them by terror.

“Our deepest fear  is not that we’re inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we’re powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

“Ask ourselves: Who am I to be , 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 will not feel insecure around you.

We are 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 light shine, we unconsciously give people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Note About Nelson Mandela
This quote is often found on the Internet incorrectly credited to Nelson Mandela from his Inauguration Speech, 1994, especially the last sentence of that quote, “As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

No it isn’t easy to go against the mainstream who talk endlessly of their fears , watch it over  and over, the horror of it all on T.V , isn’t that what these people have wanted to achieve. Terror.
