Our feminine energy is the power of our hearts and spirits to choose courage as a way of living. Choosing courage means not needing to be defined by the opinions of others or to gain the approval of others. Each journey begins by choosing new thoughts and attitudes and describing them through language.
Conscious choice requires taking responsibility for the experiences you create. You do many things out of habit. Sometimes the choices are little ones, such as deciding to honk your horn in irritation at another driver. Or they may be big ones, such as spreading malicious gossip about another person. These decisions affect the outcome of your life. Managing your choices is a full-time job.
Joseph Jaworski said, in Synchronicity, “I discovered that people are not really afraid of dying; they’re afraid of not ever having lived, not ever having deeply considered their life’s higher purpose, and not ever having stepped into that purpose and at least tried to make a difference in this world.”
Discovering life’s higher purpose requires courage. To see your purpose clearly is the gift of insight. Fulfilling that purpose requires even more courage.
You may deceive yourself into believing that choice can be enjoyed without responsibility. William H. Nix writes, in Character Works, “The freedom to choose brings with it the mantle of responsibility. True freedom of choice does not exist without responsibility. Responsibility does not exist without a standard, or set of standards. It is the standard that creates the need for responsibility. The standard is a person’s purpose.”
Hopefully, all of us have some awareness of our specific purpose. To live on purpose means to not live by accident. One way to start the process of discovery is to simply ask yourself: “What is my purpose here on this earth?” and “What am I to do with my life?” The answers to these questions provide insight and help you discover your heart’s desire.
Courage is not a tangible commodity. Americans are addicted to material things: cars, houses, clothing, etc. Courage, however, is an inner-essence like love, creativity, and energy. Although you cannot buy it in a store, it is one of the most valuable possessions on earth. Without courage, we could never learn from our mistakes. Albert Einstein is known for saying that “insanity is doing the same thing, but expecting a different result.”
At the moment you realize courage, you become fully identified with it. This connection reinforces your courage. Eventually, you will consciously feel the kinship, recognize the language, and realize you are living courageously.
