In Remembrance…

It is good to look at the leaders in freedom around us. We lost one today in Nelson Mandela. His legacy of forgiveness and leadership will continue to inspire us.

Here are a few of my favorites:

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”

(You may have noticed that the industrial and marketing world is all about changing the environment we “live in” thus blocking the awareness of the growth of the human consciousness and perhaps even limiting the ability to make significant growth as a person or a people. Note especially how it is done from one generation to the next and the propaganda that is spread by the media that creates the illusion of the “generation gap” and the division of people instead of the union and similarities, especially within the family.)

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Talk about faith:

“I’ve never had a single moment of depression, because I know my cause will triumph.”

This is my definition of a leader:

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

And this is not a bad definition of what I think of when I think of a saint:

“I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.”

Let us all keep on in our efforts to shine and build a world where peace may prosper!!!

I know that there are many things that I do not know about this man and that he may have had views that are very far from what I feel is correct and align with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I do not know that for sure and I am not inclined to want to go into it with a lot of further study. I know him from this page and the movie…and we all know how far that can go into propaganda, but just because there may be some things amiss, does that mean that I cannot celebrate what is good?!!! I do not think so. I will let this stand as a witness that I believe in these concepts as they are incorporated for the good of mankind with freedom for all and to the glory of the creator, our Heavenly Father.

About Yvonne Debra Simmons aka Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter

Welcome: Please read at your own risk and be responsible for your own edification and enlightenment. Disclaimer: I no longer consider myself a traditional Christian. I do still follow the Jesus I have come to know and I follow the Holy Spirit, as I recognize Him. I believe that Jesus taught us that we are the Christ and the "I Am" he referred to encompassed all of us. Thus, I believe we have misunderstood many teachings of Jesus. I consider myself a seeker and a believer in humanity and that there is a purpose to being; and an answer as to why we have the suffering that we do. I believe that the Holy Spirit is the instructor we should seek and that means trusting your own heart and being responsible for the guidance we follow. That means learning to hear and heed the voice of warning, instruction, or confirmation. I continue to be a student and an observer. Watching for something that tells me my hypothesis is wrong, or that I need to tweak it in some way. Writing is my greatest instructor these days. When I begin a book I do not know where it will end up or how it will develop, but I do know that I will be a changed person when I finish, knowing myself better. That may just be the best we can hope for in life. I feel as if I have died and gone to heaven numerous times as I have uncovered secrets that I long to share. My body will age and fulfill the contract I made with Christ (meaning all of us) to bare witness of His divine curse of suffering, but my spirit and intellect will bare witness of His innocence and the beauty and expanse of The Father's Love for His Son. To me, this, for now, is the ultimate freedom. I wish no argument with anyone. May we each be true to our own conscience. God bless us every One, Namaste~
