Attributed to Nelson Mandela in his Inaugural Address, this idea that we are Born to Manifest the Glory, is actually penned by author, Marianne Williamson, Here it is...
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.Your playing small does not serve the world.There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others. —Marianne Williamson

My song was inspired by it. I fed it the dynamic that I and many others go through in waking up to the Truth of Our Being, the remembering followed by the doubting. Realizing a new thought that stirs us deeply only to have a knee jerk pull to return to the same old behavior patterns. It is a roller coaster for awhile indeed.

The most powerful place in the song is the bridge towards the end where it lifts in a key change to challenge us to finally show up in the I AM frequency that we are. I love singing this song. It is moody and pierces the resistance of anyone who hears it, steering them directly into the personal place that remembers who they are...even if only for the duration of the song. 

And, yes, it was written for a Sunday talk that was aligned with Marianne's speech. I met her earlier, pitching a song to support the Healing of America book she was pushing. I gave her the lyrics and a recording of the song in hopes that she would see the vision and invite me to accompany her. She left the recording and the lyrics in the back of the limo. Disappointing, yes...but several years later I still used her words, with honor, to create Born to Manifest the Glory...I am Divine, sometimes I show it, God I Am, sometimes I know it...

I Am Divine, sometimes I show it
God, I Am, sometimes I know it
Glowing up in me  the Light
Reveal myself to me  Light
My one true destiny  this Light
       I have my moments of challenge
       I have my despair
       I shout hallelujah I scream
       "Oh God that's not fair"
       I get crucified I hang long on my cross
       Long enough to see the Light
       in the core of the loss
       Out across the plain I see
       the whole of I Am
       Yes, there are cracks and crevasses
       but there's lots of I Can's
       Born to manifest the glory
I lay me out a table I invite my past
Cover me with oil, Lord, annoint me fast
My cup it runneth full with Light
My sacred Holy Tool this Light
Universal Glue this Light
       But my knees get weak
       I fall just like a rock
       And the fear comes dancin'
       she laughs and he mocks
       But hey, I Am Holy I'm pure I'm Divine
       I take fear by the hand we embrace this time
       Inside the torrent there's an island so warm
       There's love I can count on
       in each breath I'm reborn
       Born to manifest the Glory
Live in the city travel the land
Welcome the challenge do you understand?
Do not live a small small life
Shrinking will not feed this life
Your essence cannot be denied
Raise your hands and whoop it up just ride
       The Spirit cleanses all releases the mind
       The limitations oscillate and fade away with time
       I gaze into the darkness it reveals a brilliant light
       I smile at my reflection and she laughs back in delight
       As the wind swept mem'ries lean hungry toward the sun
       The angels look down say "our work is almost done"
       Born to manifest the glory
Are you yet who you wanna be
Do you stand upon that cloud?
Do you stand up tall
No matter what comes rainin' down?
Do your eyes see eternity
in the corners of each face?
Can you feel the everything
though you touch a tiny trace
Just a tiny trace
When the day stops movin
does your heart still spin and whirl?
Does the thought of Wholeness
make you rush  into the world?
Can you see yourself with love?
Can you accept the Grace?
Can you be brilliant
though you're feeling out of place?
Can you trust a God who would give you
Every chance and endless ways?
Can you trust a God who would give you
Endless love and endless faith?
Can you trust a God who would give you
Endless love and endless faith?
To become, to become, to become, the Glory
