"There would be no one to frighten you if you refused to be afraid."
Mohandas K. Gandhi
The ring of courage is intended to give the wearer the understanding that fear is one of the greatest causes of one's suffering and that if you cleanse your thoughts, they will vanish.
The Hebrew text engraved on the ring says:
"Cowardice is the worst of all measures. Fear is the gate that the fool opens and the wise locks. When fear sneaks behind you, know it is a creation of your thoughts. Clean your thoughts and fear will vanish. Only then will your life become valid. What is within you will bring you life. What is not within you will bring you death."
The text explains that fear comes from ignorance. Fear twists your real perception and judgment. Fear is summoned by the person himself by letting deceiving thoughts and feelings grow in one's mind. Fear causes the feared one to become blind to the beauty and abundance of life.
The Ring of Courage will remind you of the great courage that is within you.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will allow it to pass over and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. When the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany against Fear
Roberto Saviano the Italian Writer and the Ring of Courage
The famous Italian writer and journalist Roberto Saviano portrays in his writings, the real story of the Cammora (Gomorra in Italian) - a powerful Neapolitan mafia-like organization), exposing its territory and business connections. Since 2006, following the publication of this bestselling book where he describes the clandestine particulars of the Camorra business, Saviano has been threatened by several Neapolitan "godfathers". The Italian Minister of the Interior has granted him a permanent police escort. Because of his courageous stance, he is considered in Italy a national hero, and the interesting part for me in this story is that he is wearing my Ring of Courage… Yes, the famous writer actually wearing a ring with a text I wrote about the illusion of fear. In a way, I find that unbelievable.
The minimum ring size for this ring is 7 US. David can also make it smaller but it will look a bit different (corners will be bent inside).
Please keep in mind that each finger could have a different size, so don't presume that a ring that fits your left ring finger will also fit your right ring finger.
