Path of Courage
What is this “Path of Courage” thing, anyway?
Honesty, love, and human connection are all about engaging the world with your authentic self. The courageous path is to honor your own experience, and stand in your truth even when it seems unpopular. This requires us to look within.
Without the courage to face one’s unique inner world, with all its light and shadow, a person remains in tension instead of ease. This tension creates fixations, addictions, conflict, and other mental habits that keep you in familiar rut – at the great cost of never truly knowing and loving yourself. You’re just reacting to tension.
But you don’t have to let the world push you into anxious conformity. Look within. Face what you find there. When you embrace your inner truth and all that you are, despair becomes a switch you learn to turn off.
So that’s the path of courage in a nutshell: deepening self-awareness, integrating what you find, and aligning your life with your truth. Regardless of what the latest “influencer” is selling. In the chaotic noise of our modern world, daring to trust your inner voice is empowering and exciting.
