Nelson Mandela and Meditation

Mandela, tantric qigong, 8 treasures, eight section brocade, ba duan jin, 8 pieces of silk, 8 twists of silk, 8 brocades, qigong, self mastery, self-responsibility, qigong for self mastery, qigong for enlightenment, enlightenment,Nelson Mandela spent over 27 years of his life in a horrendous prison, yet he did not allow it to embitter his spirit. During that era many of Mandela’s colleagues were arrested, beaten, even murdered by the state.

In a letter published in his book Conversations with Myself, he wrote to his wife, Winnie Mandela, who had just been imprisoned in Kroonstad Prison, saying  “Honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, pure generosity, absence of vanity, readiness to serve others – qualities which are within easy reach of every soul – are the foundations of one’s spiritual life.

Development in matters of this nature is inconceivable without serious introspection, without knowing yourself, your weaknesses and mistakes. At least, if for nothing else, the cell gives you the opportunity to look daily into your entire conduct, to overcome the bad and develop whatever is good in you. Regular meditation, say about 15 minutes a day before you turn in, can be very fruitful in this regard. You may find it difficult at first to pinpoint the negative features in your life, but the 10th  attempt may yield rich rewards. Never forget that a saint is a sinner who keeps on trying.”

Furthermore he speaks of balancing the external world with mastering the Self and the power of love:  “The cell is an ideal place to learn to know yourself, to search realistically and regularly the process of your own mind and feelings. In judging our progress as individuals we tend to concentrate on external factors such as one’s social position, influence and popularity, wealth and standard of education. These are, of course, important in measuring one’s success in material matters and it is perfectly understandable if many people exert themselves mainly to achieve all these. But internal factors may be even more crucial in assessing one’s development as a human being.

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than it’s opposite.”

Perhaps we could all learn some lessons in Self Mastery, Emotional Intelligence, and self responsibility from Mr. Mandela.  © 2013 Keith E. Hall and Inner-Tranquility.com All rights reserved.
