"Ultimately, we must learn to trust
ourselves. When we do this intimately and
intelligently, the world opens full of
meaning before us. We find that we ourselves
are the doorway to a fathomless
understanding of the source of life itself.
We need only to learn to walk through it."
-- James Thornton
"I trust so much in the power of the heart and the soul; I know that the answer to what we need to do next is in our own hearts. All we have to do is listen, then take that one step further and trust what we hear. We will be taught what we need to learn." -- Melody Beattie
"It has been my repeated experience that when you say to life calmly and firmly (very firmly), 'I trust you, do what you must!' life has an uncanny way of responding to your need." -- Olga Ilyin
"Do not abandon trust when your ego thinks things should be different than they are." -- Wayne Dyer
We seek to
control our lives when we do not trust, when
we do not love. Our ego, perceiving itself
to be vulnerable and insecure, uses control
in an effort to protect itself.
While control is a tool of the mind, trust comes from the heart. Trust comes with the deep knowing that we are spiritual beings in physical bodies. When we trust enough in life to give up our need to control, we can relax and open to a wider, higher perspective. We can open to our own truth and the flow of energy in our lives. This brings peace of mind.
How deeply do you trust your own guidance? When you have learned to access your inner knowing, always trust that you know what's best for you. This doesn't mean that you never ask for advice. By all means, gather information from the 'experts' and consider how their advice relates to your situation. Then act only on what feels right for you. You are the only expert for your own life.
"As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live." -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
