Internal ones

Internal ones

With his passing
his jail experience
leaves his Gift..
New focus on
what is inner
what is higher..
He is pointing
to growth paths
and our need
for our own
jail experiences…!

"People tend to measure themselves by external accomplishments, but jail allows a person to focus on internal ones; such as honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, generosity and an absence of variety," Mandela says in one of the many quotations displayed at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. "You learn to look into yourself."
