Question: How can we get courage from our aspiration?Sri Chinmoy: You can get courage from your aspiration if you can make yourself feel that you are a chosen hero-instrument of the Supreme. The very word "hero," the very concept of heroism can grant you courage. Again, aspiration itself is courage. Only a brave person can aspire. Aspiration is never meant for the weakling.
