Keep Going!

Harriet Tubman, a former slave, escaped to freedom on the Underground Railroad. She returned many times to lead other slaves to that same freedom. She endured tremendous hardship, fears and doubts. But she had a flame blazing inside her that kept her going and she helped hundreds find that same fire to keep going in the face of daunting opposition. She wrote:


“If you’re tired, keep going. If you are scared, keep going. If you are hungry, keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.”


You and I are blessed not to be literally enslaved. Yet, most of us are enslaved in psychological ways. So what is it that you need to be free of? Is it a poverty mentality? (This is hard not to have in our current economy!)


Or is it an oppressive attitude that limits you? In the psychotherapy world where I used to practice, we called this the inner critic.


Is it a physically limitation you are working hard to correct? Or have you been pursuing your dreams but with little success?



Whatever it is that is keeping you enslaved, can be overcome. Call on your own inner Harriet Tubman. Call on that brave part of you that will do whatever you need to do to get free. Join the psychic Underground Railroad. We can all get free together.


Keep going!

  1. This is so true. I’ve visited some countries with a very poor economy in Central America, and noticed that despite the lack of resources and possibilities, people kept going, they kept trying, they kept their chins up and never let their arms down.

    It sure taught me a good lesson to see some people who are less fortunate than the people in my country, and they still have a lot of dignity and they keep going.

  2. “Dignity” is a great word. And thanks, Mariana, for the reminder that this ability to keep going has nothing to do with social class and everything to do with the quality of the heart.
