What exactly is trust and faith? If there is any unrest internally, can one really trust? Is trust innate to our being? Are trusting and being trusted connected?
The idea of trust is different from the act of trusting; which is at times, assumed. What is trust? Trust is crucial for clarity and peace within. Trust is directly connected to the virtues of forgiveness and patience. One cannot trust if one cannot trust oneself. If your life is not in concert with the true intention of trust, you are in fear and unforgiveness is the basis of that fear. Whether the unforgiveness is with self, or from/with others matters not, it still indicates a lack of trust.
Trust must be earned, and it has to be experienced. If something arises in your experience where trust is excercised, did the situation bring up any fear? If fear is present, then trust is not fully engaged. Trust brings peace; ego brings fear. Do you feel that the fear had to do with a situation, or was it an inner reaction due to unresolved issues? In the case of trust with a person, knowing that someone is who they profess to be is different, then assuming they are that standard.
The process of self-inquiry is an ongoing step for spiritual attainment and evolutionary gain. There are always next steps in your internal journey toward the enlightenment of your being! This is where faith comes into play. Having faith in ones journey, connects trust to ones process, and belief in ones self. Knowing that all is right within, and trusting your connection to the trinity of your being, creates a cohesion of unity with All That Is; the Source of your being. Realizing that everything that happens in your life has a higher purpose, and knowing that Divine Will is underlying all, is the basis of your trust and faith. There are no accidents or mistakes, and if you understand this then there should be no fear.
Following your inner guidance will never lead you astray. If you feel within that something does not make sense, feel it with your heart instead of looking at it with your mind. The heart is most closely connected to your soul which is the part of you that is connected directly to, and part of Source. This is the part of you where faith and trust comes from in its truest form. Anything other than this connection and place of least resistance, is from the ego self. Nothing that is complicated and easily misunderstood comes from your soul. These writings have shown you the way to unwind the ego self from the true self and reveal the trinity of your being. The time is at hand to do this work! Nothing going forward can be understood unless you have connected the different parts of yourself to unite and activate the trinity of your being.
If you can open to trueness and have trust and faith in yourself and your process, you can connect with the true meaning of life and why you are here.
Be Well, Be Love ♥
