Spiritual writing is courageous.

Otherwise it could never deal with the truth. Were spiritual writing not courageous, it would be impossible to do the hard work that makes the writing worthy of the label “spiritual.” Courage goes straight to the question and unease; courage allows confrontation and disassembling so that the new thing can be created. Courage also does not care much about prevailing opinions but writes what must be written.
