Spiritual Courage

Teacher Ophelius:

Today’s lesson is on spiritual courage. What is spiritual courage and how does it help the ascendant career of a progressing mortal? Spiritual courage is the resolute action of living faith to do the will of God in an environment of adversity or inconvenient circumstance that would normally be out of character or above the self-defined limits of ones own comfort zone. The willful choosing to align oneself with high moral and spiritual leadings, even at the perceived detriment to ones ego is a defining moment and milestone in the life of a faith son or daughter. These are survival value events that denote a change in spiritual status, and are like the peeling away of dense dark material layers of the soul to reveal the brighter luminous spirit core within. (Seeing a vision of a semi-translucent onion who’s layers are being peeled away to reveal a shining pearl in the center.)

One who possesses spiritual courage knows when to speak and when not to speak. He or she is in control of their emotions and has achieved a moderate level of self-mastery. Those with spiritual courage listen to the leadings of the indwelling spirit and to the ministering spirits indifferent to the urge of emotional reactionary circumstance. One who gracefully accepts disappointment or defeat knows that the divine plan is working for the greater good, and in time will manifest itself as the better way--patience is divine investment. To work behind the scenes and to do good for his or her fellows without recompense, shows courage and willful obedience to the divine will.

Little children, be bold with spiritual courage and extinguish fear from your life. Do you not know that the Father of all creation indwells you and will pilot you safely to the shores of paradise? For what then can harm you, for you are life eternal in potential? See that by faith you do those things that will insure your survival by ever seeking to be like Him. Step by step, day by day, must you change, for to stand still or to look back is stagnation. Be courageous in accepting new ideas and opportunities, for these are the agents of change and transformation--these are the lessons of time and they will carry you down the river of life that leads to the eternal shores of happiness.

Good day my beloved,
