It didn’t take Trump’s acceptance speech to fell us these are dangerous times. Roaming street gangs at home, out-of-nowhere terrorists abroad. Dickens said it best: “They were the best of times, they were the worst of times…”
Neighborhoods have formed Safety Patrols…airports, security checkpoints…city streets, cameras….homes, registered guns. For many we have become Orwell’s “big brother” society.
But here’s the thing!
Whatever number of protective rings around your life, they are simply the first and most obvious defense. The second and arguably the most powerful is not any wall or weapon OUTSIDE you. It’s what every wise book and experienced warrior can tell you.It has to be something very deep and strong INSIDE you.
As the greatest warriors remind us: “The hero dies once; the coward a thousand times.” Where do you find such inner courage? That’s when you have to dig deep into your psyche and soul. Be it technical or spiritual or psychological, there is a silent
vein of courage in everyone during crisis.
Now is the time to mine it…
