19. Showing Courage and Learning Disabilities

Children show courage from infancy, putting forth great energy in their struggle to reach adulthood. And children with learning disabilities have a greater struggle to succeed, so let's encourage their strengths and nurture them well along the way.

It takes courage to do anything new, to keep expanding. Sometimes, as adults, we reach a level of comfortableness, coping with life sufficiently well to just stop putting forth more effort into growth and expansion. But why be content to live short of the mark?

Courage requires a positive attitude, opening us, exposing us to the vibrant energy of our inner strength. When we feel this vibrancy energizing our body we feel we can soar. We feel the strength of will to overcome what we have been resisting. Positive attitudes bring up the energy within us to again be courageous, as we once were as children.

Life is for living and experiencing fully in the most complete way we can.

As adults we have learned the keys to survival. We now have time to reach for the fulfillment of inner awareness, time to search out our roots of existence and human-beingness. Let's take time to help our kids develop courage, also.

Courage. Let's use its energy to search out and discover more profound levels of of our potential by becoming an inner explorer, and help our kids, being especially attentive to those with learning disabilities, or other disablilities discover, uncover their fullest potential to become successful adults.

For inner discovery we were born
Let's have the sincere courage
To discover our fullest self
To help our kids find their fullest self, too.
