Wanted: A New Kind of Courage

Published on 11/22/2015

We live in an exceptional time that demands a lot from those of us who are alive right now.

More than anything, we need a new kind of courage. We've been persuaded that it's courageous to be like the action figures in the movies: being violent, shooting the bad guys, that sort of thing.

How much courage would it take to say no, that we want a peaceful, respectful solution to our differences?

How much courage would it take to examine our worldview and be willing to abandon it if necessary? Would it be hard to give up part of our identity if we were given the evidence that there are better, more constructive ways of seeing things?

How much courage does it take to say, "I'm tired of the way my life is going and I want better," then going out and actually doing the work to make it happen.

It might mean getting involved with your community in some way, maybe getting in touch with your political representative, participating in a community garden, or helping out at a food bank or a homeless shelter.

Although the transition would be challenging at first, eventually you'd probably find a stronger sense of community, the satisfying feeling of having made a contribution, and a genuine sense of your own power.

In the latest post to my website, I talk about finding the courage to look at facts that might contradict what you've been persuaded is true. 

The world needs us to find this kind of courage, and to act on that information: fairly, kindly and peaceably.
