Making Peace with Non-Violence Day 5:
Courage is the ability to pursue dreams, no matter what. The essence of courage is conviction: conviction in our emerging aspirations and a deep understanding of why we are choosing a particular course of action. The greatest courage is to discern and decide to eliminate the darkness that comes in myriad forms from our own characters, and to illuminate the light of our strengths with humility.
Day 4: Enthusiasm
Enthusiasm is a creative, benevolent, and uplifting spiritual energy. Its origin comes from the Greek ‘en Theos’ meaning ‘in God’. Enthusiasm opens windows of opportunity, exposing new perspectives, and letting in new zeal and optimism. Enthusiasm raises perception to such an extent that everything feels possible. This is how miracles happen.
Day 3: Compassion
When you have good wishes in your mind and pure feelings in your heart then you are stable in an inner stage of compassion. Just as a flame ignites another flame, in the same way your powerful good wishes will easily make the most elevated, pure feelings arise in others. Your inner stage of compassion will reflect kindness.
