A Message to Humanity | The Soul of Man Has Been Given Wings

wpid-img_20150921_072831.jpgVid from Anonymous: A message to humanity


From “The Great Dictator”

“I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The airplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men; cries out for universal brotherhood; for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Soldiers! Don’t give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate; the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it is written that the kingdom of God is within man, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy, let us use that power. Let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfill that promise. Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national barriers! To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance! Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite! Hannah, can you hear me? Wherever you are, look up Hannah! The clouds are lifting! The sun is breaking through! We are coming out of the darkness into the light! We are coming into a new world; a kindlier world, where men will rise above their hate, their greed, and brutality. Look up, Hannah! The soul of man has been given wings and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow! Into the light of hope, into the future! The glorious future, that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up, Hannah. Look up!”

Indulgent Divulgent from the Heart of Maya ♡ | Expanded from a reply to Mayastar Academy’s FB page | http://www.maya.mayastar.net

Sharing a memory and in gratitude of the message and delivery…and to Ms Atkins for a message that I resonated so strongly with, it is no stretch to say It changed my life…gradually…but I never forgot the message or the lady.  ♡

Indulgent Divulgent from the Heart of Maya ♡ |

I remember, when I was about 14,  a particular assembly at my boarding school where the pupils kind of mocked the Head Mistress for being a soft touch. She ignored them. Never confrontational. It was clear other staff members didn’t agree with her ‘turning the other cheek’ and walking away…I don’t mean she mooned them! That was a metaphor!

And besides she had two rottweilers in the shape of the deputy heads that would pick out the trouble makers later and give them pointless tasks for their trouble!

But 27 years on the message of that assembly has stuck with me.

Her point being that there are choices and not always second chances so life should be approached not assuming opportunities today will still be there tomorrow – and in such a way that we don’t live with regets.

That was a synopsis of what was a very empassioned speech. She was kind but staid. Forgiving but aloof. Accepting but kind of stoic. And old fashioned in a way that to be empassioned at all was unusual. So the speech was unusual…perhaps more a heart to heart with the students. And it made an indellible mark on me. I was 14. I hadn’t ever seen anyone make an empassioned speech without a religious context. And I was genuinely moved.

It stands in my mind as being unlike her other assemblies she was so emphatic and animated  during the discourse that.  I don’t think all were pleased about this about this…I caught the deputy heads exchanging glances. But they were ‘by the book’ types. Where stoicism becomes a rod for your back.

I suppose I had assume Ms Atkins was of that ilk. But I was very wrong.

This was clearly important to her. She knew education went beyond teaching. I am sure she was speaking of her own realisations (this was not  religious assembly). And that she genuinely cared that everyone in her care knew this information and didn’t have to learn it the hard way.

I have reflected on it often over the years. And now feel I come to understand it. And I teach the same.

Mayastar has a number of principles that permeate my work and teaching style. And I am truly blessed that my aspergers brain was engaged and listening to her. Maybe the fact she was picked on more than me at school made her seem less of the rottweiler and more “of the people” to me. 

#RussellBrand went to my school briefly…I don’t know if he heard this speech but I don’t think so. I think it is something he would advocate now if he had 🙂

It seems simple now. I was half hypnotised by the rituals of my life as a boarder and usually stared out windows in assembly (Aspergirls eh!). But she had me engaged. I don’t know if I understood fully her message at the time but I remembered enough of the delivery to know this was important. I will never forget her saying that our only objective in life is “getting it right”.

She was a great teacher. She inspired me a great deal. At first she seemed the least likely person i would listen to.

I feel really honoured to have known her. She can’t imagine the legacy of her words that day and what it meant for me later in other situations as I gained perspective and my own conclusions. But the difference she made to me personally and all aspects of my life is something I will always treasure.

People can be the most amazing people! I have known a lot of them and my work in Metaphysical Solutions and teaching through Mayastar Academy has allowed me to express my soul purpose. And I truly give thanks for Ms Atkins’ speech. Anyone who finds my empassioned teaching irreverent,, know that I teach what I know and I feel passionately about doing so. Such is the nature of the vocation. ♡

Very blessed ♡ Maya
