Courage is never given except in a crisis. Otherwise it's unnecesary.

People admire courage but despise crisis. They want to be accomplished but hate to be challenged. Most of them don't understand the law of opposites. So, they think that courage and acclaim are coincidental. But those with both understand their essence. They also grasp the importance of paradox. Thus, while the whimsical wonder what it's like to win, winners lose until they win. They aren't broken by defeats or conquered by crowns because they realize that both are fleeting. They also understand that loss isn't lessened by regret. Neither is victory sweeter by being over-blown. From without, however, the imagination always embellishes.

It's hard to lift the burden when you're it.

     Making a difference begins with discovering our destiny. Until then we make a mess trying to make amends, collecting enemies and disgusting friends.

Not every gift is opened when it is sent. Thus, it must find a place for itself to vent though the time it invests doing so seems ill-spent. Yet every gift must be convinced that it was not idly sent. On the contrary, the Sender foresaw what would be needed to unthaw the age in which it was laid. So, time was allotted and space extended until the gift became content whether or not others rent the package to take advantage of its excellence. Not even failure deters because real gifts know how to stir themselves until the time the Sender is inclined to reveal its shine.
