To be courageous is not to have an absence of fear. Rather, to have courage is to have mastery over the fears that reside deep within us.
It is the willingness to tear the bandage off, dissect our subconscious mind, heal old wounds, and understand our inner most processes as intimately as possible.
It is to venture into the wilderness of uncharted territory and forge ahead anyway. To step into vulnerability, and plunge into the murky depths of our hearts.
To have courage is to move in the direction of love even, and especially, when we have no other guidance besides the divine truth residing within.
Courage is the light that is shined into the darkest corners of our deepest selves, illuminating the strength and beauty within.
It is the soft and steady voice of the soul that whispers “Come now. This is the way.”
