Breathing In Courage with Iam Saums
Courage is an interesting concept. What does it mean? The desire to act, or not, I would say, in relation to whatever your ‘higher interests’ are. The best for you and for your family, friends, community and especially the entirety of the ‘all of us’. All with an eye on one’s integrity.
So, who decides the answers to these questions? Who chooses what is right and wrong? I see that as a simple answer. You do! I do! We all do for ourselves. Or we don’t and allow others to dictate, rule, coerces. How sad, and unheroic, I would say, to let others tells us what we can and cannot do.
Perhaps courage is simply the willingness, no matter the consequences, perceived or real, to do what we feel is right. Big Question. How do we decide that?
So again, I ask myself what is courage? Do we even know? I would say all of us need to see that for ourselves. Find the answers. Not from movies or that idiot box called a T.V. Certainly not from others, especially those we call Politicians. A fool is a fool who is soon fooled.
For sure, many may inspire us, but a ‘cage master’ by any other name, will still keep you locked away. I want to gag when I see any ‘so-called’ expert in a suit trying to tell me what is or is not so. I suspect any, and all of those ‘voices’ on a tv screen to be acting. They’re certainly not working my best interest. How could they? The don’t even know me.
So, Courage. How do we get ours? Where would such a concept be found? I was lucky enough to have an interesting conversation on this very topic, and many others besides, with Iam Saums. A visionary, author, poet, musician, but most of all, if I dare so say, an honest man in an honest life trying to dig deep inside himself to find the best answers for him and his life.
A deep breath can do wonders for our health and mental state of being. We are made of breaths and we will die very quickly, if we have none. To limit our breath is to limit our lives. Wisdom comes on the winds, at times for me. And deep breathing, or so I’ve found, is a key to longer life and conscious choice.
Breathing in Courage can ignite and cool at the same time. Ignite inspirations and Cool down Stress. I invite you all to listen and enjoy.
Further explorations of Iam’s wisdom may be found on his website. And maybe, you may see for yourself how to develop the courage to become the best you, you’ve always felt was possible.
With Much Love, Lorenzo
