Way Of The Warrior
The word courage is very interesting. It comes from a Latin root cor, which means “heart.” So to be courageous means to live with the heart. And weaklings, only weaklings, live with the head; afraid, they create a security of logic around themselves.
Fearful, they close every window and door—with theology concepts, words, theories-and inside those closed doors and windows, they hide.
The way of the warrior is the way of courage. It is to live in insecurity; it is to live in love, and trust; it is to move in the unknown. It is leaving the past and allowing the future to be. Courage is to move on dangerous paths. Life is dangerous, and only cowards can avoid the danger-but then, they are already dead. A person who is alive, really alive, vitally alive, will always move into the unknown. There is danger there, but he will take the risk. The
heart is always ready to the the risk, the heart is a gambler.
What Is Courage?
The head is a businessman. The head always calculates—it is cunning.
The heart is non-calculating. This English word courage is beautiful, very interesting. To live through the heart is to discover meaning. A warrior lives through the heart and, by and by, in the heart he starts listening to the
sounds of the unknown. The head cannot listen; it is very far away
from the unknown. The head is filled with the known.
What is your mind? It is all that you have known. It is the past, the dead, that which has gone. Mind is nothing but the accumulated past, the memory. Heart is the future, heart is always the hope, heart is always somewhere in the future. Head thinks about the past; heart dreams about the future.
Just living is not always living. Look at your life. Can you call it blessing? Can you call it a gift, a present of existence? Would you like this life to be given to you again and again?
