Today connects to yesterday.  And it’s very question-y.  (Which means that the Universe is going to keep forcing us to Think Deep Thoughts right now.)

             We are being asked to look within, some more.  And, like the last draw, to be honest with ourselves.  And about ourselves.

What Is Courage?

             Other than what the Cowardly Lion is searching for, that is.  What does it mean to be courageous?  Is it about empowerment, personal fortitude, drawing upon strength we don’t even know we have?  Because that’s the image I was shown.

             It’s how we feel, and how we live our life.  Are we beginning every day with lovingkindness and approaching every opportunity with a caring attitude?

             Are we accepting the ups and downs, ins and outs, of this adventure?  Or are we struggling with the stresses and strains?  Complaining and getting caught up in negativity?

             It’s up to us.  It is our step to take, always our decision.

             It’s up to each individual to make that choice.  Selecting the strong and honest option heals.  It heals us.  Which, in turn, helps all of our loved ones, both here and at Home.

             To have courage is to have truth.  And, back within our regular rotation around the card altar this afternoon, we are given a reminder to keep our strength going.

“Believe  ~  St Hildegard of Bingen

To heal and improve this situation, it’s important for you to believe.  Have faith in miracles, the power of (Mr and Mrs) God’s healing love, and the essential goodness within people.

This is an important factor in determining the outcome of this situation.

St Hildegard of Bingen demonstrated that to bring (Mr and Mrs) God’s message to the world, you must believe in yourself.  You are qualified.  You are ready and prepared.  You can do it.

This saint overcame tremendous self-doubt and become a multitalented author, musician, and healer.  This was especially remarkable, considering that women in her era (1098-1179) weren’t expected to accomplish worldly deeds. . . . “

             Let’s go over this part one more time:

“. . . . you must believe in yourself.  You are qualified.  You are ready and prepared.  You can do it.”   And maybe, jot that down, pass it along to someone who might need it.

comes with a warning.  THIS POST is funny and horrible, horrible and funny.  If you ever want to eat trashy fast food again, you probably shouldn’t read it.

  1. I have heard courage defined as “being scared, but doing it anyway”, whatever “it” is… asking someone out, challenging a professor on something you’ve believe they mis-stated, asking the cashier if they gave you the discounted price, or any of the myriad of things that the numbered people do.

    I liked Saint Hildegard’s message as well, plus her being a woman ahead of her time.

    I also read the link. I am delighted to say that we haven’t eaten at McD’s for about 6 years now; almost completely eliminated fast food from our diet (Subway, now abandoned by us, Burgerville USA, and Burrito Boy excepted.)

    1. I don’t consider the Burrito Brothers/Boys/Girls as fast food. Sure, it’s fast, and it’s food, but it’s also healthy, all made-in-house, and not owned by corporations. Just locals.

      To Go type burgers are so few and far between that they are (and have been my entire life) a sort of treat. None of us has been anywhere near a McDonald’s in over 20 years.
