Virtue of Courage


Courage also known as bravery, fortitude, will and intrepidity, is the ability to confront fear, pain, risk/danger, uncertainty, or intimidation.


"Physical courage" is courage in the face of physical pain, hardship, death, or threat of death.


"Moral courage" is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition, shame, scandal, or discouragement.


The virtue of courage helps us to take the initiative to make changes in our lives and/ or to accept changes brought before us. Courage can often lead us to a spiritual awakening and/ or enlightenment.


Courage can allow you to shed old patterns, especially those patterns that are harmful to your body or soul. This virtue allows you to reach new levels of being. No matter who you are, no matter what has already happened to you, no matter what you have done, it is still possible to have a “new beginning”.
