Many souls around the world today are still living much of their lives  and  consciousness in  the state of fear. It’s sad thing to see but it’s a reality that can been seen all around us.  Many systems (various social, political, religious, and others) within society perpetuate the energy of fear, and such systems will continue as long as the consciousness of courage does not exist within  us. By having courage, we  are  able to stop experiencing the fear being perpetuated by those systems and take off the illusory shackles imposed by  them.

The transition from fear to courage is a very big step and often requires much effort and energy, but it is entirely possible with a little determination and perhaps some external support.  Not only is having courage beneficial for us  to confront our inherited fears, it also benefits society as a whole. The less power that the systems within our cultures and societies have through their use of fear, the quicker they will disappear and liberate consciousness.

Fear limits the growth of our personality and inevitably leads to a nature of inhibition and repression.

When we exist in a state of fear, we put up an impenetrable boundary between ourselves and our own self-actualisation.

It is unfortunate, but the subjective consciousness state of fear is a limiting, prevailing, and habitual state of expectancy that can be projected onto essentially any and all aspects of one’s life. Stress becomes the primary by-product of the fear and creates further problems.

Embodying Courage

The perpetuation of fear can be stopped in its tracks once we embody the consciousness of courage.

Courage allows for exploration and accomplishment when our focus of awareness is on  exciting, stimulating, and challenging parts of life.

Progress occurs when courage is emboldened.

When you have courage you have a passionate willingness to experience wonderful things that have not been explored before. Fear can then be faced head-on, because you have a significantly-higher level of energy and previous hindrances disappear.

Self-esteem will go through the roof because there is a sense of “I can do this”which becomes progressively self-reinforcing. Productivity also soars to new heights.

With courage, there is an enhanced confidence that one feels within your being.

There is an empowerment of the self, when one realises they are not dependent on external factors.

Everything that one ever needed has been within his or herself the whole time. Freedom is finally experienced as the shackles of fear are taken off and thrown away.

The significant shift from fear to courage allows a person to work on manifesting his or her inner potential. This potential can be aligned with one’s sense of an overall mission or goal in life. Pursuing life goals would not be possible if we had a consciousness of fear since it would inhibit any action towards manifesting such goals.

With courage, our overall level of happiness grows immensely and everything is seen in a more positive light.

People are perceived as being more friendly, societal problems are not seen as hopeless as they used to be, and many other positions of awareness are shifted. The evolution of consciousness from fear to courage can change our lives in such a dramatic way that we feel we’re living in a different reality than before.

Taking  Responsibility

There is perhaps one factor that is more important to be mindful of beyond all others which has to be realised if we wish to make the transition from having fear to having courage: accepting personal responsibility.

This critical action is a prerequisite for the shift from fear to courage and requires that a person gets rid of the idea that he or she is a victim of a perpetrator.

All social belief systems that are based on the suppositions of blame and excuses have to be transcended so that we can shift away from fear.

None of this is easy since courage requires a higher input of energy than fear below it does. However, whether it is through the inner determination of oneself or the outer support of others, this critical transition is certainly an obtainable reality.

Understanding the differences between these two sates of consciousness is important to know before the process can begin so that we know what we’re working with. It can take a day or it can take a lifetime, but whatever the pace may be, once it occurs, the sense of self-empowerment can be the satisfaction one has always felt was needed in order to accomplish a most-fundamental self-realisation.
