Be Audacious

You cannot live a sheltered life forever without ever being exposed, and at the same time be a spiritual adventurer. Be audacious. Be crazy in your own way with that madness in the eyes of a man that is the wisdom in the eyes of God. Take risks, search, and search again. Search everywhere, in every way, and do not let a single opportunity or chance to let life pass you by...

wisdom is right there on the other end of courage; that very courage we need to face what God might have in store. i love the thought of being a spiritual adventurer.

As always, beautiful. I love the concept of being audacious. It stems from the word audere, which means, "to dare". A shameless and unrestrained spiritual adventure.

Being audacious is easier said than done. It requires facing and passing through our deepest fear and insecurity. Talking the talk is way easier than walking the walk. Here's Rumi writing with audacity. Let it shake you up:

"Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious."

I like the Rumi, akilesh. He is succinct and right on it. Great quotes!
