“Take your victories, whatever they may be
Cherish them, use them,
but don’t settle for them.”
~ Mia Hamm
In the spirit of soccer season, I’ve quoted sports legend Mia Hamm. Not because of her celebrity status, not because she made a ton of money on endorsements; but because she did not settle for soccer as her one victory. After excelling to icon status in the sports arena, she went on to create the Mia Hamm Foundation dedicated to bone marrow research. (1)
Today, while listening to a talk show, it occurred to me how easy it would be for those in power to give the light workers, freedom fighters and truth seekers enough to console them. Just enough to give the masses reason to believe that they have won a victory. Too often, it is human nature to look on the bright side and say, “Well, at least it’s better than it was before.” I think it is due in part to fear, that we ought not to push our luck…take what we can get, and learn to be happy with it.
Then, it occurred to me, that I have seen more proof of human beings, movements and communities that are well aware of what they want, and will not stop until that desire is fulfilled. I ask that you all join me in gratitude on being part of the awakening which has taken hold, a movement that will not settle until heaven on Earth has been invoked. Never settle for less than truth and love brothers and sisters!
