Actions Speak Louder Than Words- Nelson Mandela and The Year Of Broken Pathways

In this month's post I'm featuring a true personality of the world stage:-Nelson Mandela. He's almost univesally known to people. He also happens to be a teaching example I have used in 'Life Cycles' and I am proud to be able to display almost every 'Year of Revolution' and every 'Year of Broken Pathways' for his long life. By linking his themes for these years I am able to demonstrate the most statistically valid result for a whole life, that would be impossible to have happened by chance. It took Nelson 27 years in prison and many more for his struggle for freedom to be achieved. It would be fitting if one day in the future 'Life Cycles' was also recognised on the world stage as not just another system of analysing life, but the one true system that is recognised by independent researchers, academics, sceptics and most of all by you.

Today we'll just be concentrating on his 43rd. 'Year of Broken Pathways' (18th, July 1961 to 18th, July 1962) and looking at what fateful events happened in this twelve month period, that would shape his life for quite a few years to come. Remember every post since April has been about the 'Year of Broken Pathways'. The name came from the simple fact that I observed in so many different lives, a challenging and defining year that occurs every 12 years. So at 7 and 19 and 31 and 43 and 55 and 67 and 79 it happens. I can demonstrate this with Nelson and I do just that in the 'Famous Lives' chapter in the book.

December 16th is known throughout South Afica as Heroes Day. This is because on this day in 1961 Umkhonto we Sizwe was formed by Nelson Mandela. This is otherwise known as 'The Spear of The Nation'. It's charter was to carry out planned attacks against Government installations particularly those concerned with the policy of apartheid and race discrimination (like pass offices, native magistrate courts etc.) . The intent was to damage by bombing without harming any people. To do this attacks were carried out usually at night. Many years of peaceful resistance and dialogue with white authorities had not gotten the ANC anywhere in terms of genuine reforms. The time seemed to come for a simple choice:- either submit or fight. As Nelson said:- "We shall not submit and we have no choice but to hit back by all means within our power in defence of our people, our future and our freedom."

This was obviously a fateful moment in his life, because it was going to bring him into conflict with white authorities. It was going to give the police and other law enforcement agencies an opportunity to pursue him for a criminal conviction of sabotage. So what happened after these attacks against installations were instigated? Well he went on the run for 17 months adopting a disguise. He was arrested after CIA intelligence located his whereabouts. On 25th. October, 1962 he was sentenced to five years goal beginning his famous 27 years behind bars. Two years later he was to stand trial at Rivonia along with other ANC leaders, facing charges of plotting a foreign invasion of South Africa (which Mandela denied). On June 12th, 1964 he was sentenced to life imprisonment and now the struggle for equality was to take a different form.

There is no doubt that these events taking place in the years that immediately followed his personal 43rd. 'Year of Broken Pathways' were challenging and meet all the criteria specified in 'Life Cycles' theory. Have a look at what happened to John Lennon in his battle with the US authorities and Robert The Bruce, who was on the run from the English and Anthony Prince, who had to learn to live in maximum security gaol and Diego Maradona, who had to fight his battles with drugs and booze and Michaelangelo, who had to paint the whole Sistine Chapel ceiling. There is an obvious similarity to these stories and the uphill struggle that follows the fateful events in their 'Year of Broken Pathways'.

I urge you to keep reading as my posts to come will fascinate you even more. I have also begun a second blog:- "The Story Behind Life Cycles' ( ) as I wish to show you that everything I do has a purpose and there is a symbolic meaning to all my posts. I also will mention some stories that didn't make the main blog but are gems in their own right. To all my blogging friends everywhere:- "May the cycles always bring you good fortune".


  1. A great personality on the world stage! The main representative of the anti-apartheid movement, which denied to blacks (the majority of the population) political, social and economic issues. A great activist. A living example of fighting for freedom, equality and social justice. GREAT NELSON MANDELA

  2. Terrific post. It certainly does make you take a moment and consider how one event can shape the path upon which we walk! Mandela is a prime example of this.
