So, several things are at the heart of this process for both Zechariah and myself–the restoration of vision, the relinquishing of hindrances (like fear, doubt, ego, etc.), and the reconstitution of promise and purpose. While Zechariah encountered an angel privately in the temple, I encountered an activist publicly at Burke High School in Charleston, SC.
There is definitely something to the saying, “third time’s the charm.” Last Sunday marks my third public declaration and representation of an “I Am” statement. Each proclamation has spoken to the truth of my ancestral heritage, which begins with the ancient civilizations of Africa…not slavery in America.
This ain’t no either/or proposition
It’s a both/and disposition
So, don’t dismiss
And by all means, don’t acquiesce
Own your authenticity as part of the process.
Because when bliss and authenticity align
The external and the untruths no longer define
Your existence, your pathway, nor your destination
Because you recover oneness with the divine and all creation.
