Courage

“Allow yourself to find the courage to be who you truly are – a beloved child of Great Spirit.”

Courage is the fearless pursuit of Divine Will and Divine Way. Courage is the ability to look unflinchingly at the thoughts, attitudes, and barriers that separate us from the full acceptance of Great Spirit’s grace. Courage arises from faith. Faith arises from knowledge. Knowledge arises from practice.

To live with courage is to simply live.  To express spirit courageously is to live a life of meaning and service.  Fear is irrelevant to our existence for life continues if we live in fear or not.  Fear is unnecessary to the soul who loves, for love gives us courage to bear all things, endure all things, and hope for all things.  Courage is the fearless pursuit of Spirit’s love, joy, and peace.  Fear arises from not knowing or understanding.  Courage arises from certain knowledge of spirit truth.

Great Spirit, today may I recognize
that I always do the best I know how to do.
Yes, after the event
I can always think of ways
I could have done better-
said something wiser-
or been kinder somehow.

But I did do the best I knew how
to do at the time.

May I learn to forgive myself
for what I did not know.
May I learn to forgive others
for what they did not know or do.

I can learn to do better.
Help me find the courage to make that happen!

Beloved Teachers-
You have shown me the road of fearlessness.
You have demonstrated a life of courageous love.
Help me to follow in your footsteps.
May I awaken to Divine Grace.
