Courage… A Virtue of Real Intent

Courage and the Calling… A Depth Psychology Perspective

Greetings my friends. I happened upon this quote today from John A. Shedd, a merchant businessman and philanthropist of the late 19th and early 20th century. Being an old Navy chap, it struck a bell. But not only on the surface, for if you look into the depth of meaning had in this citation, it inroads to the soul’s intent, or the need we have to undertake our destiny’s calling.

As we age, we generate. In this process, we begin to collect. Some things may be for show, but what is their true intent. Can we sum up the meaning of life as a showpiece to be displayed? I don’t think so, for what kind of life would that equate to in the first place. While philosophy and the depths of soul are uncertain, there is one certainty present.

If you awoke this morning, and happened upon this article, you were given another day. Something called you here… What was its intent? Find the answer, and the calling has begun. But it’s not necessarily in the answer given, but in the question posed. What is your voice calling for you to do?

Namaste, my friends. May peace and blessings find you on your journey to believe, achieve, and advance confidently in the direction of your dreams.
