I went skydiving a few years back in Whistler, Vancouver. I relied heavily on my virtue of courage, though I was scared. As exciting as that experience was, it was short-lived. True courage is choosing who I am at every moment and empowering myself to remain in this awareness no matter what. Even if others are going one way, I use courage to stay true to myself. I need strength to hold on to my values at the most challenging times. It takes integrity to align my thoughts with what I say and do. To check my feelings and to face honestly what lies in my heart takes courage. To forgive myself and to forgive others takes compassion intertwined with courage.
I the soul am courageous. I activate my virtue of courage by awakening and giving energy to it. I connect to my courage, take its hand and every day perform courageous actions.
