Wings Of Hope – Part Two

Hope

The Good News

So what is the good news in all of this?

The good news is that more and more people are beginning to awaken to the fact that they do have the personal power to take control over their own destinies.

Truth as a perspective, not an absolute

More and more people are starting to discover that the only ‘truth’ that exists is the truth that they choose for themselves.

They realise that whereas organisations, cultural groups, political parties, nation states and religious collectives all offer their own versions of the ‘truth’, these are only perspectives, not absolutes.

More and more people are realising that true joy and harmony comes, not from trying to force your version of the truth on others but from allowing others the freedom to choose their own truth and exercising the tolerance and respect required to live side by side with them.

Live and let live

Personal power means living and letting live; choosing and letting choose, exercising free will without impinging on the rights of others to do the same, taking control of your destiny without attempting to take control of others’.

A growing body of people are coming to appreciate that authentic power comes from within and is not granted by someone or something else in the outside world, nor is it to be gained from controlling others.

Have Hope

Unique yet interdependent

These people recognise that, while we are all unique we are also interconnected and interdependent. We can only thrive as a species if we are each allowed to find our own truths in an environment of mutual respect and, ultimately, love!

Wings of hope

I believe that there are wings of hope starting to take flight!

As you digest what I have said and whether it has meaning or truth for you let me leave you with the words of this powerful and haunting song that makes the hair on the back of neck stick up (listen to the song here):

There shines a light in the heart of man,
Defies the dead of the night,
A beam that glows within every soul
Like wings of hope taking flight.
A sunny day, when a baby’s born,
The little things that we say,
A special sparkle in someone’s eye,
Simple gifts, every day.
Somewhere there’s a paradise
Where everyone finds release,
It’s here on earth and between your eyes,
A place we all find our peace.
Come – open your heart,
Reach for the stars,
Believe your own power.
Now – here in this place,
Here on this earth,
This is the hour.
It’s just a place we call paradise,
Each of us has his own,
It has no name, no, it has no price,
It’s just a place we call home.
A dream that reaches beyond the stars
The endless blue of the skies,
Forever wondering: who we are?
Forever questioning: why?
Come – open your heart,
Reach for the stars,
Believe your own power.
Now – here in this place,
Here on this earth,
This is the hour.
There shines a light in the heart of man,
Defies the dead of the night,
A beam that glows within every soul
Like wings of hope taking flight,
Like wings of hope taking flight.

  • "It's not a job, it's a lifestyle... It defines you. Forget about vacations, about going home at 6 pm - last thing at night you'll send emails, first thing in the morning you'll read emails, and you'll wake up in the middle of the night. But it's hugely rewarding as you're fulfilling something for yourself" 🖤 Do bigger things!
