Pagan Virtues -- Courage

Monday, September 22, 2008
Courage defined by Webster as: mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. The ability to face fear and overcome it so that we can persevere. Whether that fear is a fear of ones self or of failure.
But this musn't be confused with bravery. For fools are brave and rush into things with fear and thinking. But wise people are courageous and overcome adversity.
This is a virtue that we all should cultivate in ourselves. But how does one do that? Well that answer can not just be straight-forward and easy. Rather it is something that will vary for each of us. We must, each of us, face our fears and examine the roots of that fear.
Through this, and only this, can we learn how to defeat our fears and worries. When we do this then courage will fill the gap.
