Without trust we can’t craft and live our soul-prospering lives. Without trust it’s difficult to accomplish our Mission and to achieve our Destiny here on Earth.
There are three main types of trust: Trust in ourselves, trust in our Vision, and trust in the Universe.
Notice I didn’t include “trust in others”. Certainly trust that your friend and loved ones want what’s best for you; that they truly want you to succeed and be happy. Don’t look to them, however, to always be able to pitch in and help you or to always be enthusiastic and encouraging toward you and your dreams. They have lives and dreams and Missions and a Destiny, too! They have rough patches to wade through just like you do.
The only one who is always going to be right there with you in each and every moment of your life is YOU. So, it’s YOU that has to generate your own inspiration and motivation. It’s YOU who has to strengthen your resolve and wherewithal so that you can plow through the tough spots.
We’ll talk about trust this week, trusting yourself, trusting your Vision, and trusting the Universe.
In the meantime, here are a few quotes to get our mind prepped for the week ahead. Enjoy!
You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough. ~Frank Crane
A man who doesn’t trust himself can never truly trust anyone else. ~Cardinal de Retz
Deciding whether or not to trust a person is like deciding whether or not to climb a tree, because you might get a wonderful view from the highest branch, or you might simply get covered in sap, and for this reason many people choose to spend their time alone and indoors, where it is harder to get a splinter. ~Lemony Snicket
The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly Universe or a hostile Universe. ~Albert Einstein
Your destiny is the level where you will play your tune. You might not change your instrument but how well you play is entirely in your hands. ~Elif Shaftak, The Forty Rules of Love: A Novel of Rumi
Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never even have imagined. The coincidences or little miracles that happen every day of your life are hints that the universe has much bigger plans for you than you ever dreamed of for yourself. ~Deepak Chopra, The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence
