Why is Courage Essential?

“Courage is the quality most essential to understanding the Language of the World” from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Why is that? Why is courage essential to understanding the Language of the World? What makes courage so important to that understanding? I mean of all the qualities I could think of that would be important to understanding the Language of the World – love, compassion, peace, acceptance, balance, openness, willingness, etc. – courage would not have been in the top ten. It probably would have made the list at some point and it would not have been near the top. However, once I read that and thought about it for a little bit, I understand why courage would be essential

For one thing, The Language of the World is not taught in school. Well not at least in any school I was made to attend. There are some forms of it being taught at some schools I have chosen to attend. However, for the most part, The Language of the World in not on any curriculum that most people have been exposed to. That means if you want to learn and understand it, you must seek it out. You must go where you haven’t been, think as you haven’t thought before, and, sometimes, even admit you may have gotten it wrong. Most of us don’t want to move that far outside of those things we know. So that will require courage. Courage to move beyond all that you have known and embrace that which you do not.

Another things about the Language of the World is that is does not settle for anything less that your best. If you seek it and seek to understand it, It will ask you to challenge yourself – challenge your thoughts, your beliefs, and your methods. Once you say “Yes” to It, It will constantly tap on your shoulder of attention. It will let you know in sometimes not so subtle ways where it wants you to be. Once The Language of the World speaks to you it doesn’t shut up. It takes courage to fully commit to that path of understanding and learning because there is no room for those who are not fully committed. The Language of the World cannot be unknown once you experience it. You can try and forget it or not think about it. You can try and ignore it. However, once open to It, It will always remind you it’s there and that It has not forgotten you. Yep! Courage is definitely a key quality when you wish to understand The Language of the World.
