534. Courage

The animal in me

Showed the animal courage

By fighting and strangling.

The human in me

Showed the human courage

By snubbing and belittling.

The divine in me

Shows the divine courage

In accepting and loving.

The Supreme in me

Shows the supreme courage

In transforming, widening, deepening

And finally transcending.
