Win the Inner Battle with Mawi

You have more in you than you can imagine.

Where is your Secret Ocean?

by Mawi on October 24, 2013


Several times in my career, I’ve talked with inner cities kids who live just a mile from an ocean or a Great Lake, but have never visited. I’m always stunned and saddened when I meet these students.  I think, “How could you be so close to something so amazing, and never go?”

What if the same thing happen to all of us, in our own minds? Are there not wondrous places each of us can visit in our own minds and hearts that are but a “mile” away?  Places of growth, power, confidence, or forgiveness that would astound us with their beauty and majesty, if we only had the courage and imagination to go?

Where is that place for you? Get a pen; draw a mental map of an Ocean that is just a mile away for you; name your Ocean; and go visit today.

I believe that you are going to be speaking to my class tomorrow. I wrote a journal script, from your brother Tewolde’s point of view, based upon your book Of Beetles and Angels. I would like to send it to you, I understand that it might not be accurate because I had to add some things to make it the required length, but I was wondering if you might want to read it. I’m not a good writer and I understand that you are probably quite busy, but its worth a shot to ask you. I was wondering if there was any memorable experiences that I could add to it, or if it was anywhere close to what it should be.
