Awombness: How do you eat an elephant. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step ~ Lao Tzu. Freedom was the goal at the end of Nelson Mandela’s walk. It remains the goal for all the world’s people. Freedom from poverty. Freedom from wage slavery.
A popular refrain during the struggle, immortalised by the movie Sarafina, “Freedom is coming tomorrow”. But tomorrow never comes. I guess the lesson for me, is that Mandela was talking about individual freedom not freedom for all.
Bob Marley said “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds!” I think I know what Tata was talking about. Also, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Chomp.
