THE STRENGTH OF RISING AGAIN
(PRETORIA SOUTH AFRICA)
Mr Bee Speaks
Nature taught us that we are human beings, and we are better than all the creatures God have created. However we can’t shy away the fact that we only live once and the second chance it’s not in this planet. For the fact that we live once we need to take that serious and ensure that our falls do not become permanent.
Wells H.G. states that if you fell down yesterday, stand up today. Which means never fall and sleep, because that might lead you to death. What paralysis people’s dreams today it’s not the failure to work on them, but the lack of strength to rise again on their falls. People will get knock out along the way and think coming back will be make them stupid, forgetting that surrendering will make them even worse.
On the journey to success there is too much traffic, at some point you will find stop sighs, red traffic lights and stop and goes, definitely these will delay you. The delays might cost you, time, money and other important resource and you end up falling down, but do not sleep on your falls rise up and drive again. A Chinese philosopher once said “Our greatest glory is in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”.
In many times what makes people not want to rise again is the fear to fall again. I have learned a lot from the former president of South Africa Nelson Mandela (Tata) after he stayed 27 years in prison, he uttered the following words in 1994 which I believe are the once that strengthened him after all, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear". We need to conquer our fears and rise again, take were we left and continue with our journey to success.
Sometimes you need to rise to boost your ego. Many people speak when you have fallen, and some even wishes for you not to rise again. I like a poem by Maya Angelou that says I rise; she basically speaks about rising against all odds. This means come neither rain nor sunshine, nothing will stop you from rising if you have decided to rise.
I have learned a lot on a Mexican proverb (“they tried to bury us they didn't know we were seeds”) that realizes we are natural people, and more often we relate to other biotic things. If we look the life of a seed it’s too contrary, a seed it’s a non-biotic unless you burry it and the moment you burry it. It demonstrates life to you and worse while you just forgotten you have buried it. Therefore it means the life of seed depends on it denying death. The willingness to rise again simple gives the message that you denied death.
It’s impossible to always resist impediments, but it’s possible to rise after all difficulties that throw you down
