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.
