“Courage allows us to uncover the different layers of protection we have build around our heARTs.”
Courage is the most mentioned tune on the inner journey. It defines the tempo on the dance floor of life. Always present in the background and called upon each time we’re invited to let go of different layers of protection around our hearts.
Courage helps us face what lays covered underneath our beliefs and conditionings. It enables us to let go and cut through the illusions that prevent us from going there. Courage is rooted in the foundation of trust & comes from the Latin word « cor », which means heart. Other tunes alike, its essence is to be found in our own heart.
Courage is the key that opens the doors to the unconscious parts of our being. At the entrance of these doors, dense emotions & even fear arise. It is much better to open the door first at some point, instead of waiting for the unknown to break free from behind it. Remember that these doors cover the pathways to our own hearts.
“If we want to hear what music is playing, we’ll need to focus our attention on the inside. “
We have built layers of protection around our heart, in the form of beliefs & all kinds of behavioral patterns. These layers are wrapped & twisted around a variety of emotions & feelings we could not express before. We touch upon courage by facing them with the knowledge that now, we can remain present with them & allow these emotions to be seen.
Courage is the willingness to feel & express our heart, fully realizing that it is not always joy, love & beauty. Courage allows us to move forward knowing some parts of us will die. These parts, however, do no longer serve us and are “protecting” us from our own light.
“Entering our darkness is the first step, it takes all the cultivated courage to accept our light.”
