We all have a lion's roar within us.
This is the roar of the heart. It's all love and pure freedom of one's being. If you've ever read up about the true meaning of courage, it means to tell the story of who you are from the heart.
I will also extend that to "walk the path of the heart."
I believe that is all that Life requires of you - for your own evolving and the betterment of the world around you.
Your life isn't some random act of nothingness. You contain an individualized curriculum of purpose, manifested through the unique thread of love that exists within you.
I say unique because your thread is your gift to the greater whole of life's source of everything...love.
Imagine if every single person lived and breathed unapologetically the song and dance that was in their heart?
Wow. One thing's for sure - there would be a huge shift in consciousness. You would see communities strengthen, innovation like we've never seen, creative and artistic excellence, less conflict, and most of all, more love.
In my life, I've come to know that with a broken and/or disconnected heart, I lack courage. With a full and healed heart, I have the confidence to roar.
What makes courage such a secret weapon for an extraordinary life is that isn't not just aligned with finding and living your purpose. To "tell the story of your heart," also means to be genuine and honest about how you feel towards everything.
Having the courage to speak up in relationships, to say sorry, to stand up for yourself, to ask for help, to let go, to surrender, to say no, to trust, to be vulnerable, to take a chance, and to risk loving someone else.
Courage will set you free from fear. And when exercised consistently, you become wiser and more confident.
From there you become more self-aware. You come to know thy self. You become connected to your natural essence, the love in your heart.
Now you have the luxury to choose in any given moment how you will respond to life. With love and wisdom, or fear and self-doubt?
I think I know which you would prefer!
Courage, above all else is your secret weapon. Be bold and be you. That is your true expression of love.
Love liberates. Love rescues. Love is the Truth.
To your courageous heart,
