“I believe that courage follows love…. When I love something I can be very strong in defense of it, or very brave in pursuit of it. And I think my own courage has come from being loved well enough so that I could love myself and others.” – A Soul Matters Member
Wow. Are you brave? What do you Love enough to defend? What do you Love enough to pursue? Who loved you so much that you have become brave enough to risk loving others, and risk loving the world?
Courage is the heart centered push and tug that prompts us to act even when we are reluctant, vulnerable or afraid. If you are an adult in our time you have had many opportunities to act courageously – to step forward in support of your values, to defend those you love. This month courage is at the core of every Sunday morning: the courage to confront racism, the courage to be vulnerable, the courage to be human together, the courage to do our own inner work, the courage to confront mortality, the courage to endure grief. Its hard to be brave alone, its not quite as hard to be brave together.
May love and courage fill our hearts…
