Trust is an interesting little word that I believe has a lot to do with control. The dictionary says it is reliance on the integrity, ability, surety of a person or thing; confident expectation. Obviously it also has other meanings having to do with money and property.
In my humble opinion the only entity anyone can truly trust is God and in turn our own soul mind, which is eternally connected as one. Anything else is EGO or as Dr. Wayne Dyer has said, “edging out God”.
A lack of trust occurs when someone else does not do what we think they should do. The ego’s desire to control others pops up its ugly head. We are then angry and hurt. How dare that person think without my guidance? It often leads to the elimination of that person from our life, which is not necessarily a negative move.
Recently my daughter had this kind of reaction to something I did. Actually, I believe it was something I wrote in a blog that hit home and she wasn't prepared for the truth. She told me, “I don't trust you”.
My reaction is GOOD! It is about time you grew up and started thinking for yourself and stop relying on others to take care of your problems. It was also a positive sign to me that I have finally arrived at a place where I am free to do, say or write exactly what I choose to, no matter what anyone else thinks.
When I trust and follow my Creator and my soul mind it is impossible to lead anything but a positive life. Who do you trust?
