ALALA - the grace of Courage
Alala is the Goddess of the Battle Cry, shouted and screamed out at the beginning of battle to raise morale and invoke courage in the face of the enemy. It has become a universal human ritual across many civilizations to unite and join with others with a single voice to create a state of brotherhood in an important moment of collective unity. Alala personifies the sacrifice made by soldiers to dedicate their lives for the sake of the people they are protecting from their enemies. This Goddess bestows honour upon those who give their lives to protect others, as opposed to those who take lives in order to manipulate and control the balance of power. There are many circumstances where the individual would like to raise courage to overcome Phobos (fear and panic) and Deimos (dread and terror). To find a voice to speak out against injustice and suppression, and to be heard amongst the inner screams of silent oppression.
There are many factors and forces that create obstacles in the path of spiritual discipline. These are the lower distractions of physical desire, mental entertainment and emotional appeal which form the Ego nature.
To overcome these distractions and obstacles requires the determination to succeed, to resolve issues, to work around obstacles, to deal with conflict and opposition and to go bravely on towards victory.
To deal with conflicts, issues, addictions even if the root cause still remains present in life -eg. cancer, alcohol, drugs, abusive environments.
Courage is the result of inner work to achieve self determination and self empowerment against overwhelming odds.
Courage: I call upon the Grace to face fears, overcome adversity and find a way past all danger.
