Courage-Power to Overcome Fear

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear. Courage is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

There is an ecstasy, a joy that many believe is unattainable. It is not unreachable, but it demands that we walk through doors we may fear. All the great teachings tell us at some point to fear not. The great truth is that our thoughts need to be freed.
Without freedom we exist behind prison thought walls.
You think you are being free, but what is the daring and frightening idea that you suppress from within, do not allow to speak to your consciousness?
This is the shadow that Jung says we must face. We must face it willingly or it will be thrust upon us as fate.
Spirituality is a daring adventure.
Hold God's hand and don't think you know what's on His mind.

God is absolutely shocking.
