Strength and Courage

One of our favorite expressions is don’t take it personally. If your life has been hit hard by the vicissitudes of the stock market, the tragedy of a job lost, the struggles of just paying your bills, it is difficult to NOT take it personally and feel sorry for yourself. We are told that the rain falls on the just and the unjust, not just to rain on your parade.

We live in a world of choice. It is far more important to pay attention to HOW you respond to what is happening rather than to WHAT is happening to you. You can continue in the old fear-based ways of seeing the world crumbling around you, or you can choose a love-based approach of how can I be part of the solution. Help create the world you wish to be a part of, rather than just being devastated by the world you are in.

We have come to believe that the brain, our rational thinking, puts out an energy into the world – a mass-body that can influence nations, movements and events. Carl Jung referred to this phenomenon as morphic resonance or collective unconscious. Modern technology is now able to literally record and measure this energy from satallites. However, contrary to our original belief, it is the heart, not the brain, that is the strongest organ of emitting these vibrations. What we feel is a far stronger energy than what we think. This shift from our brains to our hearts is critical in these tumultuous times.

When we talk of moving from fear-based living to love-based, we are saying to move from our head’s way of solving problems to the heart’s way of healing a situation. Knowledge comes from intelligence and rational thinking, true wisdom comes through the emotions, the feminine, the heart. The emotions of love, peace, and hope emanating from our heart can and do impact your world. We are living history every moment, witnessing a world that is changing in ways we can’t yet understand.

Let’s be a part of making it a future of unity, of love, cooperation and compassion. Imagery has proven that all we need is within us – understanding, clarity of purpose and will, courage and commitment. These are the tools we need to make peace with our own dark side and then we can heal the dark sides of our world. Often in our seminars, we read the poem, Strength and Courage.

It takes strength to be firm.
It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to stand guard.
It takes courage to let down your guard.

It takes strength to conquer.
It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain.
It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in.
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend’s pain.
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to hide your own pains.
It takes courage to show them.

It takes strength to endure abuse.
It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone.
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to love.
It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive.
It takes courage to live.

It’s time for the planet to move from our strength to our courage.
