“Moral cowards never achieve high planes of philosophic thinking; it requires courage to invade new levels of experience and to attempt the exploration of unknown realms of intellectual living.” [UB 101:7:2]
Thought Adjuster: “What is the substance of courage? It may come as a surprise to many of you that it is far more than a knee-jerk type heroic impulse that leads you to intervene amid a life and death situation. It has also been referred to as a somewhat mysterious inner resource that you can ‘summon’ to extirpate yourself from an uneventful comfort zone or a sticky predicament.
It is so because courage is the benevolent spiritual influence yielded by the Fourth Adjutant Mind Spirit. There are seven of them, and each member of their professional team gets activated in a chronological sequence. You could liken the Spirit of Courage to the fourth mousquetaire partaking to your life epics.
If your life were a soccer game, the Spirit of Intuition would wear Jersey Number 1 and take the kick-off. Mostly relying on the accuracy of his gut feeling, he would pass the ball to Jersey Number 2—sported by the Spirit of Understanding, a born strategist. After accusing reception, this teammate would adroitly maneuver the ball toward the Spirit of Knowledge, who will most certainly know where to take it from there.
What then? Do you run out of steam and call it quit? Do you hoard the acquired knowledge in your mental vault for safekeeping, or do you put it to its intended practical use by going forward?
Those successful in life are the doers—the planetary movers and shakers. They may start day-dreaming on the sideline, devising an action plan for their life worth pursuing. After adding the last finishing touches, they move to the implemental phase and appeal to the motivational Spirit of Courage to coach them in taking the leap of faith that will land them on thrilling new experiential turfs.
Where do you go from there? No worries. The Spirit of Counsel will debrief you and point the way toward the advanced field positions held by the Spirit of Wisdom and the Spirit of Worship—the grateful Team Captain.”
