Be ready and willing, here and now, to be courageous. Release your mind’s idea of security, of “right” and of “wrong”. Allow your personality to dissolve and to become One with the Love that Is, everywhere. All false boundaries evaporate like mist in the sun as you devote yourself to the Oneness of Love.
Contemplation / Reflection
Be ready and willing, here and now, to be courageous – sometimes it feels like just getting out of bed each morning is courageous! Despite making plans and having “to do” lists, one never really knows what opportunities for courage will present themselves on any given day. If I think about the potential threats in each day, I can be overwhelmed. It takes courage and trust to get on an airplane and travel in a silver bullet hurtling 500 miles an hour a mile or more above the Earth. It takes courage to cross the street, trusting in each driver to heed the speed limits and stop lights. It takes courage to eat a meal, given all we hear about what’s “good” to eat and what’s hazardous. Face it, being alive is a courageous act! Then I think about the fact that EVERY ONE OF US living on this planet today, or who has ever, or ever will live, is indeed, a courageous warrior. What is “security”? Thinking that we are fearful, timid, weak individuals, that is a big pile of “false boundaries”. We are courageous daughters and sons of an incomprehensible and beautiful creative source. How can we, how can I, not want to dance in the rain and sing in the sunshine that showers Lovingkindness on us all. How can I not bow in love and awe to every one of my sisters and brothers who, just like me, has the courage simply to BE here, to be alive, to laugh, to cry and to love on this precious blue planet?
