CHANCELLOR’S OPENING SPEECH
My Lord Mayor, Mr John Hirst, Principal Debbie Croker, Bishop Richards, Helen Godfrey, Lana Mareno. Distinguished Guests and Artists, Grandaunts of Life Universecity, Ladies, Gentlemen and Children.
It is my privilege to welcome you to this graduation and awards ceremony.
The graduation ceremony is one of the most memorable events in anybody’s life. This comes at the end of a 15 months Lessons and mindful preparations. This ceremony tells you that you are now prepared to restructure your life to put into practice the Principles taught, to achieve your life soul’s purpose.
I must remind you that you are a living soul and as such the most fortunate and powerful beings on planet Earth now. You are fortunate and powerful because you have the most amazing insights at your command which for many generations would not have had. It is important however that you ensure that you know that you are no longer in the dark, or too old, or too small, too few, or too late. You must pay attention that you are no longer of such a generation. And must be willing to use your power, and to maintain your conscious awareness, living from your soul, an eternal YES to The Magnificent Way. Because If you don’t, the things you learnt would soon fade like the sounds of drums in the distant yonder. It is now up to you to ensure that you use your insights for grander purposes, and do not allow this opportunity to slip away. You must be prepared to make what you would previously consider the impossible your moment. Every one of you, from the most basic of understanding of The Magnificent Way, may create a heavenly community and the planet as perhaps no one in your family or street or town or country has done before. You are the difference the world needs. You agreed to this when you came into this world, you were designed for magnificence, this is no cliché, there is genius in you. One person can make a difference. You came here to be your own Super Hero, and today you are mine.
Looking through the lens of our media and brain-mind, it could be said that there is so much wrong with the world; unemployment, poverty, killings, Brexit, unwise presidents, nuclear threats, bombings and so many infringements on societal harmony. But you can change it all. That’s what this graduation ceremony is all about. It tells you that you are ready to put what you have been studying into action. So, awake, arise and move upwards and forward pulled by a vision of a better day. See a world around you where men and women boys and girls are more than matter or the sum of their parts. Life inhabiting individuals, essential goodness masquerading as the name by which we were called and known to date. And so, let the poor say I am rich and the weak say I am strong, and that which have been shrivelled and decayed return to life. How is this possible. Your conscious awareness, appreciation, gratitude, kindness and service will help to heal yourself from your past, inspire your present and motive the change you need to be. Employ your natural gifts, use it upon others around you and watch them grow. Transcend your limitations through your daily mirrorwork and inner visioning and affirmations. And go.
Life Universecity is proud of you because made it through to this point, and will continue to be proud of you as I watch you put into practice the principles you have learnt, such as the MagniAlpha, to shape your language, and your outlook understanding and responses of the world around you. This is your power tool, and you can use it to make a difference however small each day
I ask that you all see LifeU as your alma mater. the place to stay connected, to keep in touch, grow and hopefully you will go on to year two the 2nd tier of your ever-expanding magnificence. I would also ask you to please pass on your learning of The Magnificent Way Principle’ through your Words and Deeds, to your families, friends, associates, and communities in the hope that the next generation will produce young ethical visionaries, inspired entrepreneurs and consciously aware leaders who no longer judge a man or woman or child by what you look like or what you wear, the colour of their skin, or what school they went to, nor the area they grew up in, the job title they hold, or how much money they have, but rather, in the knowing that the Great Breath of Life is the same breath in al, and in sameness of breath is the essence of infinite intelligence, even that which navigates our atoms and protons, holding galaxies in space, the supply, weight, and pull, of gravity on earth.
And so, I close this speech by Congratulating you all for enrolling on the Course program and persevere over these 15 months to cross over the finish line.
Congratulations to all the family members who are present here to witness this unique moment of your souls’ journey. For their patience, understanding and acts of kindness.
