I'D LIKE THE "SURRENDER/TRUST COMBO, Please"
Not easy words, eh? Trust…hmmm…trust what, trust whom…why? When? See? …tough words…lots to consider…and why even consider it?
Benefits of Trust…what's in it for you?
You can relax…
Life flows more easily
Everything goes on sale at once…and you can afford it.
Benefits of not trusting
You don't get hurt as easily
Ward off loss…
Get out of life with fewer scars, disappointments and betrayals.
Who should care?
People who are suffering
People who know people who are suffering
People who want to reduce suffering
Downside of Trusting:
Have to let go of your addictions
Have to let go of your contrived self-identity
Have to become more attractive.
Downside of Not-Trusting…
Ever reducing universe options
Fear squelched existence.
Ultimate isolation and less fun.
What else does trust do?
Lubricates the pathways of interpersonal exchange.
Makes the ground of existence more dependable and buoyant.
Saturates all transitions with spiritual "come."
What or who are we trusting?
"Exactly." Abbot and Costello
Or…to be more specific
"The Evolutionary Imperative" variously called,
"The Will of God, Allah,
People often experience it directly through
Golden laced sunsets…
The act of creation
The delightful surprise
Examining the exquisite dances of existence as they display themselves through universe peepholes, like…physics, biology, astronomy, physiology, good management theory, successful relationships, parent/child continuum, great movies, symphonies, meals…thanksgiving.
Yep, it's there to behold wherever we're willing to look…as long as we look for it in the Now…
And that brings us to surrender…
A topic for our next conversation.
